  • Media PLayer -> I-tunes

    K well before i had my ipod.. i only used media player... so i have a lot of songs on there that i have lost the cd of... and i have things that i downloaded or got sent from my friends computer... So i remebered them lately and decided i wanted to put them on my i-pod.... but it says i have to convert them.. so i do.. and the first one says converstion failed.. so i figure you know maybe its just that file.. but no it wont let me convert any to be used... is there a way to convert them? or am i screwed here till i can find where i downloaded the songs or find the cd's? ... it may be a dumb question to some of you.. but i am ******** when it comes to computers... i can basically do the basics

        you'll probably have to convert them using windows media player, because I don't think iTunes will read windows media audio files (.wma's). Convert them to mp3, aac, aiff, or wav and they'll work fine. It's windows proprietary files that suck, not itunes. ;)

            I'm not sure off hand, I'm a mac guy so I rarely ever use the windows media player. I would imagine it can be done though, try the help guide or google, or just wait until a windows user comes around.

                I want to convert my WMA music files to MP3 format. Where can I get an MP3 encoder?

                You can purchase an MP3 Creation plug-in from the Plug-ins for Windows Media Player Web page, or you can install Windows Media Player 10 (which includes a free MP3 encoder). If you choose to install the Player, after installation is complete, you will also need to install the Plus! Digital Media Edition Audio Converter Update. For more information about the update, see the Updates for Plus! SuperPack Web page.

                  If you need to convert the files just google wma to mp3 converter

                  you'll be expected to pay but most of them have trials where you can do 5-30 for free. from what you've said I wont recommend searching for ways around the trials plus it'll probably break a few rules around here...

                  dunno if this is any help...http://www.wma-mp3.org/
                  What if everyone simultaneously disobeys?
                  It aint a game if no one plays, oh.

                    http://www.download.com/Power-MP3-WM...ml?tag=lst-0-1

                    Try this, I just did a quick search on download.com, by the description this looks like what you need.

                    CNET rates it good as well.

                        NP i had the same problem, but I eventually gave up and just used winamp. There are plugins that you can download so you can fully operate your ipod on there. Plus it's a lot more customizable.

                              Pfft, lies.
                              The whole world loves neophyte athletic tight end Jimmy Graham from Miami with the 95th pick. "Best pick in the draft,'' one AFC coach told me. "Give him time, and in that offense, he'll be better than [Jeremy] Shockey by the start of next year.''

                              We know that no matter the adversity, be it the lockout, be it the suspension or be it a hurricane, our men will pull together and defend the honor of this city. Weve shown weve been able to do that. - Jabari Greer
