    Guys,

    I need a little help with some file conversions, I have downloaded some tracks from a site called Trackloader (yes I did pay for them so they are licenced tracks), the problem is that the 30sec sample that you can listen to is in .mp3 format - great I thought! However the licenced version that you buy is in .wma format which neither my PSP or Nokia phone support.

    Have you any ideas how I can convert them? I have a method that gets 'around' the licence but it costs my a CD each time and as I only download a song or two a week it would be a long time before I had downloaded enough songs to fill one CD. Trackloader's helpdesk basically said 'Tough' has anyone any ideas? I do not want to distribute these files just get the songs that I have bought on my PSP.

    I wasn't sure what you meant by a system to get around it but googling db power amp is a program that lets you convert from mp3 to wma and wma to mp3 etc.

    Does it cope with licenced tracks i.e. does it create licenced .mp3s? That is where my problem lies, the .wma has a licence associated with it so normal conversion programs don't want to know, is there a program that can convert my licenced .wma into a licenced .mp3?

    burn it to a CD using WMP and then rip it again (using WMP) which gives you nice clean mp3s.

    I had to do this with a couple of albums I bought from tesco.com so I could put them on my ipod.

    Nice idea but Windows Media Player closes the disc each time, can that be undone by using a CDRW?

    If it's licensed music, chances are that it's DRM protected so you can't convert it. Get a CD-RW and burn, rip, reuse. That's the best I can think of.
