Yeah, you will also find that you can't move iTunes protected tunes to other formats. You will probably have to burn them to CDRW and then load tham back to iTunes. I haven't checked yet but there may be some conversion programs out there but it would be pirateware.

yzbert, Nah ... there are tons of free WMA to MP3 converters out there (not pirateware .. legit stuff) do a GOOGLE search. Still a pain .... takes time to convert each song, but in the end compatability is the goal and will be achieved!

dBpowerAMP Music Converter is one of many I've used and you'll find it on a copy/paste/search

yeah, some of the programs will do a "batch" conversion, where it converts every file into the other format. Can set it to make copies or replace.

I"ve not had any trouble with transfering my music files to my iPod. But I don't use napster. I get my music from winmx.com

dBpowerAMP Music Converter wont reconize the napster files, limewire.com cant figure out if that will do it or not.

when i burn a album from napster it will transfer name of artist and song, but when i just burn mult. songs from napster to cd it transfers as track 1 ect. big pain??
