Use the Nullsoft Disk Writer plug-in (Which comes with Winamp). To access it, load Winamp and press CTRL-P to get to the preferences screen. Go down to the plug-in section and select OUTPUT. From there you should see the plug-in. Click on configure and it will prompt you for a place to put the WAV file.

It won't work. If you select one of those output plugins, it will still output to the speakers. I don't know what to tell you. I have 2GB of WMAs, and I almost wish they were still 4GB of MP3s. You can't do crap with WMAs in WinAMP. Including stream over ShoutCast.

It doesn't work for me either! What are we doing wrong?

I just figured out that it works for everything EXCEPT wma files!

use an old wma plugin from winamp 2.5e http://www.winampheaven.com
microsoft has forced nullsoft to remove wma support for every output/dsp plugin except waveout (even directsound doesn't work) in recent versions
so just install 2.5e to another directory and overwrite the in_wm.dll of the current version with the old one (and be careful when you upgrade winamp not to overwrite again)
for just converting wma to wav use cooldecode: http://members.***********/QuinqSoft/products/cooldecode.htm
edit: you'll loose quality if you convert wmas to mp3s (by compressing them again), if you still have the cds encode again! otherwise keep the wmas (or use napster)
