How to buffer entire WMA files?

Does anyone know how to buffer entire WMA files while playing them with WinAmp?
I have an early Barracuda HDD that cannot be called a silent disk because it's louder than the fans inside my comp. If I play MP3's without buffering the disk wheezing noise is sometimes quite disturbing. There is, however, a useful option in the "Nullsoft MPEG" plug-in called "Full file buffering". If you set it to let's say 20,000 kb you never see the HDD LED blinking during MP3 playback. Yet, I've got lots of WMA files from my friend recently. I tried to convert them to MP3 format but it takes hours to do this. Can anyone help? Thanks.
