WMA download / conversion question

I have just purchased a song from the Tesco music dowload site as I had a free music download voucher.

The file is a WMA file and will not play in i-tunes.

How do I convert this so that i-tunes plays it? I guess it's something really simple, but I'm struggling to sort it at the moment.

Cheers.

Windows Media Audio you need to open it in media player and convert is to mp3...or use a 3rd party player like musicmatch or winamp!

can't be done, as it is a protected WMA bought from a music store.

The only way to get it into itunes, is to burn it to a cd in WMP (or something else) then rip the track back onto the PC without any DRM.

That had crossed my mind. Thanks.
