By default, Windows Media Player adds DRM (sort of a spyware tag) to your WMA files so they can't be converted to any format. You can turn it off in Windows Media Player options.

you shouldn't have to copy your cds again. once you copied them they are on your computer somewhere. You just have to find the folder with all the files in it and add them to itunes.

Well there is no way to get rid of the DRM on your existing files, so the quickest way would just be to rip your CDs and files again in iTunes using the AAC codec.

I just go to "file" in iTunes, and "add folder" or "ad file" to library. Then you just select them and it converts.

The Mini holds plenty of songs for me, I don't know what I'd fill a 20, 40 or 60 with anyway

Women's tennis sucks.

Go Rafa.
