Re: How to convert from WMA to another format!

Here's a very simple way to convert those WMA files to a different format (like OGG or MP3).
Simply connect an audio cable (like those used to connect most speakers to PC's) from the line out (or speaker out) to the line in (or mic, but turn off any gain features) on your sound card. Set Line In (or Mic) to the default recording source (in Volume Control). Now, set one program to record, and another to play the WMA file. Then trim silence from the ends of the recording and encode. (This may lose a tiny bit of quality, but it won't be noticible after it's been in that low-bitrate format.)
While possible I dont recomend it. Huge loss in audio quality. If you do that please dont be a bitch and share that file on a P2P network so that it can propagate.

There is a program out there (some where i dunno where) called "Unfuck" that removes the copyright protections on WMA files. Search google for it.
