Hi ladies!
I'm hoping some of you really computer savvy galls can help me out. A lovely member of my DDC club sent me some .wma (Windows Media Player) tracks for healthy and peaceful birthing... and I would really REALLY love to be able to transfer them to my iPod... I have to somehow make them into iTunes files... or whatever that means... and I hate to admit that I'm really kind of clueless. I tried just dropping copies of the tracks into iTunes but they didn't show up (which might just mean they are there somewhere but essentially useless).

Please let me know if you happen to know how to get a .wma file to work in iTunes!!!

And a great big thanks to you ahead of time!!!

Oh, and if you can think of a board here somewhere where this might fit bettern please let me know!!!

I asked my hubby, and he says if you have a mac it may be a bit more complicated as you need a program called "Toast." If you have a PC, he says there are lots of conversion programs free on the internet. He says you just have to google "convert .wma to mp3"

Good luck!

Yup, I have a Mac. And I've not been able to find anything on-line either... But I'll look up Toast! Thanks for that!
