wma to mp3 or wav

before every one yawns and walks away, let me begin and explain my syndrome.

as any happy chap i would like take music from cd's and convert them to mp3.
due to Mr.Gate's licencee agreements iam *@$"ed. iam unable to do anything but listen to these on pc, so i tried verious methods. from reading the tech support pages ive currently tried using winamp 2.6 with its naughty in_wm.dll, no go, then tried "unfuck", which i felt the opposite. then also the "split output plug-in" guess what.... still no happy mp3 tunes

iam begining to feel , i only want please i beg the world, any thing to solve my situation

Use this link instead for CDex and yes, both CDex and EAC will work with Windows XP.

Is there any way to change a wma file to an mp3 or wav file AFTER it has already been saved onto the computer? My problem is that I saved some of my CDs onto the hard drive (they saved as wma files) and I now want to burn them onto CDs but the program (Adaptec Easy CD Creator 4) will only recognize mp3 and wav files. Help?

You should be able to just use DiskWriter Output in Winamp to decode to WAV.
(*see below)

You can also try dBPowerAmp Music Converter, though you'll also need to install the extra dMC WMA codec

Further info/help/tips

*Note: You'll need the old WMA Input plugin from pre 2.6x

External programs:

Blaze Media Pro (shareware $50) <http://www.webattack.com/get/blazemedia.shtml>
Audio Conversion Wizard | Advanced WMA Workshop (both shareware $30)
Also: dBPowerAmp, CoolEditPro, Easy CDDA Extractor, Total Recorder, Messer, etc (most of these are linked to via links in the above thread)

More listed here:

Audio-Converter: http://www.audconv.com/ (shareware $20)

For DRM protected WMA's:

Basically, you'll need to Unfuck them first.


Good luck!

I have a WMA file on my system and I am trying to convert it to MP3, Winamp doesn't seem to let me to this using the DiskWriter Output...nor does CDex.

Winamp ver 2.81 (I tried ver 3. didn't like how it made use of tags)
so I'm stickin with my 2.81

CDex ver 1.50 (most stable version I have used)..

Unzip in_wm.dll to the Winamp\Plugins folder, thus overwriting the current version of the file.
Now open Winamp and try converting WMA to WAV with Diskwriter again.
