So I'm thinking about investing in an iPod, and I'd prefer my many WMA music files to be converted to MP3, as opposed to AAC, and iTunes does.

Does anyone know of a decent, free converter that will convert all my .wma files to .mp3?

Thanks a bunch.

Yeah, I believe Ipods absolutely require files to be AAC.

I used a converter for a while called MediaMonkey 30 day trial, but googel will produce far more reasonable results.

Actually, when you get iTunes, you can choose the option to covert it to anything you want, MP3, AAC, you name it. you just go to optioins and if you change it, everything you put on iTunes will be coverted to MP3

How can it convert a song in no time? It's gay because I prefer not having to convert my songs to play them on my mp3 player. Zunes can even play non-drm'ed AAC.

yup. apple product = necessary apple format. no choice there. converting to mp3 would just be waste of time.

Wrong

Again, wrong.

People should do a bit more research before offering moot advice...

In iTunes, go Edit>Preferences>Advanced>Importing

The change the format to mp3. Now right-click any song in your library and you can convert it to mp3.

thats it tho, YOU dont have to do ****, drag it into itunes like you would anything, and it converts in the backround, takes VERY little time

and a zune? u poor poor soul (unless of course ur happy with STOCK mp3 players, then its really any mp3 player is the same)

i think iTunes has a built in converter. but what other people saying that iPod only plays AAC is false, it 'prefers' AAC but will play back MP3 and other other formats (apart from WMA guess why lol? :P)
