    WMV's in iTunes?
    Along with thousands of MP3's, I ripped a couple hundred tunes on my PC in WMV format. These appear not to transfer to iTunes on the Mac.

    I know how to convert them to MP3 format on the PC. Wondering if my iMac has capability of doing this more simply or if there is some procedure available for getting them over to iTunes that I am not aware of. What would be the best way to proceed?

    There is a little Application called EasyWMA that will convert the Windows Media Audio files right on the Mac to MP3. It's $10 but worth it to me as I had a lot of WMA's on my one PC.

    I have beta Flip4Mac and can play WMV's. My problem is getting iTunes to accept them into the library. EasyWMV may be the solution to that. I will check it out. Thanks.
