A full version of a free WMA to MP3 converter is available on the CNET download website. CNET also offers downloadable programs and software reviews.
Free WMA to MP3 is only capable of converting WMA files to MP3 or WAV files. The program does not accept any other type of file format. An unprotected WMA file can also be converted to an MP3 file using Apple's iTunes software; protected WMA files cannot. Some data may be lost when a file is converted due to the way data compression occurs in certain formats.
Reasons for converting WMA files to MP3 files include allowing playback on the iTunes software, an iPad or an iPhone.
