    ok so i bought a can of spray mount and on it was an offer for 2 free song downloads from this website.
    ive downloaded them but turns out they are wma

    i cant open these files, even windows media player says "the hardware license for this content is inconsistent."

    does anyone know how i can convert these files into mp3 or something i can put into itunes?

    You'll need Flip4Mac and QT Pro (not free). Then you could convert to mp3 or mp4. I'm sure others have more suggestions. Might be a lot of trouble for 2 tracks?

    Yes, they are DRMed. There's no way to play them on your Mac as-is. You'd have to burn them to a CD from a PC with Windows Media Player and re-rip them.

    nah itunes is exactly like itunes on the mac. it will only encode to AAC, AAC, AIFF, Apple Lossless, MP3, WAV.

    do what killmoms said.

    burn it to a music cd on the pc and then import it into your itunes library on your mac.
