    Default Covert WMA's to iTunes?
    I just brought a 160gb Western Digital portable HD. I went over to my friends place and he uses Windows Media player for all his media.(i know)

    So i got some music that I wanted from him, but I just can't drag the music I want into iTunes. I tried changing the .wma to mp3, but that didnt work.

    So my question is, How do I get those wma's into my iTunes.

    I use windows media player and it actually runs nicer than itunes (on my windows system). I personally love it. Anyway this is beyond the point.

    I just put .wma into my music folder and then select "add new folder" in itunes. Itunes scans my songs and then tells me "X" amount of songs need to be converted (I think it does an .aac or something like that) It is possible that the Mac itunes works differently, but I doubt it.

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    Nice idea, but won't work on a Mac, because MS won't license WM decoders to Apple.

    @Colorado Stevel: Go to versiontracker.com and download either EasyWMA or Flip4Mac. Either one will convert it to something iTunes can use.
