    i tried it out and it didnt work for the file, i tried 3 different .wma's and none of them converted to mp3, downloaded the file after the supposed conversion and just got a quick bleep of sound...

    Super > *

    Click on above

    It converts numerous video/audio files, everyone should have a copy of it.

    Will that program convert .aac to .mp3?

    If so, iTunes will convert your .wma to .aac

    Convert from there. Maybe iTunes will convert the .wma to .mp3? I've never actually tried that.

    if he has iTunes, that makes sense. But if he doesn't, then Super would be the way to go.

    i'm just confirming that iTunes will, in fact, convert from wma to mp3. maffy29 wasn't sure. click edit -> preferences, click import settings on the general tab, set import using to mp3 encoder, set your bit rate and click ok and ok. by default, iTunes will convert to aac, but this makes it use mp3.

    gotcha, might want to quote who you're responding to next time to prevent any misunderstanding
