For some reason I can't import wma files (ripped by Windows media player on a PC) into iTunes.
I have drag and drop, or add files to library.

I am running 10.3.8 on a PB 15" 1.5ghz

Thanks

This is the App you are looking for - EasyWMA. It's free.

Easy WMA doesn't seem able to convert the wma that I have, it just reports an error.

if you have protected WMA's (its on by default when you rip your own cd's) i dont think it will work. Maybe you could use a program such as http://www.rogueamoeba.com/audiohijack/

Try converting them with the PC version of iTunes. It has a WMA converter.

WMA protection is automatically activated if you rip your own cds?
Woah, isn't that over zealous? That is rather dumb, it will only keep honest people out and people with any knowledge of computers can obviously be able to get around it. Stupid Microsoft.
