I was wondering how I convert files in Wimamp? I need to convert some WMA to MP3 format..??
Try some of these free tools, I'm sure one will meet your needs:
so ummm Winamp cant?
Not that I know of...
dbPowerAmp should do the trick.
Yeah, Bman I scoured plugins for ya and couldn't find jack. Another freeware proggie should do it though, with relative ease.
dbPowerAmp didnt work, it cant convert W.M.A to MP3, only WAV and such...
Actually, it can...you just need to install the WMA codec (mp3, wav and cda are already included)
As netrider said. You need a wma codec for dbpoweramp to convert the file. DBPoweramp can pretty much convert anything ...
Ok, great it worked pretty good. Except that it came up and said " this file is encrypted and DMC can not decode". This happened for half of the songs I choose to convert. What does this mean, how can I change this?
2 possible solutions present themselves:
1. Burn the wma file to CD using Windows Media Player and re-rip as MP3
2. Play wma with Windows Media Player and use dMC Auxiliary Input to 'record' the track as it is being played.
It gets around the encryption.
What that means is that DMC was trying to work an couldn't .. I would check their forum to see what is wrong. I have'nt used it in a while ...
Cdex, does it!
cdex do wma conversion ?? I think not ..
I have fixed all of them except one album. Which is because I don't have that cd anymore. How can I fix this one.
yes it does, i have done it many times, u go to convert and then click on Re-encode Compressed Audio Files, then u point it in the location of the wma's and highlight the ones you want and then hit convert
Burn the wma file to CD using Windows Media Player and re-rip as MP3 - works everytime I've had to do it.
you lose quality like that
Isn't he gonna lose quality no matter what converting to MP3? No loss burning to CD. I guess if it's ripped onto a low mp3 bitrate...
hmm what to do, what to do
