Just realised that my entire CD collection is on my current PC in WMA format.

Will iTunes be able to play them or will I have to convert everything to MP3?

Thanks,

Zach

iTunes will ask you to convert them. No need to download a third party converter since iTunes can convert them itself.

iTunes will only offer this WMA conversion on a Windows platform.

If you have WMA files, I would recommend the Flip4Mac(Free).

If possible, I would recommend if you have the CD's to convert them into iTunes using the AAC format. The 128-bit quality of the AAC(MP4) file is much better than a 128-bit MP3 file AND will be a smaller file size as well.

More MP3 players are becoming compatible with the AAC/MP4 file formats and it's the known successor to MP3.
