i have just downlaoded a load of protected wma files (legaly through napster)and really want em on my mp3 player but refuse to pay more to do that! damn the riaa! i think the only way to convert em is to record direct from the soundcard? i can do that with creative media source player but its a bit of a pain doing it track at a time, is there a recording program that would work with an audigy 2 soundcard that will give mp3 out. its really taking the that i have paid for music and cant do what i want with it! as always thanks for any help edit: its ok i sorted it out, if ayones interested you need a program called tunebite, it runs in the background and re-records your tracks, its designed for exactly this damn wma stuff.
