Is there a way to convert WMAs to MP3s?

I have a cd (30 Seconds to Mars) that I'm trying to convert to MP3. It will only allow me to do WMAs, and that won't fly on my Ipod. Is there a way to get around this?

CD --> mp3: EAC+Lame
WMA --> mp3: foobar2000 (quality will degrade!)

What is "It" what will only allow you to do WMAs?

If all fails, you can always rip within iTunes so that you can easily transfer to your iPod. iTunes allows you to rip as mp3 or as aac.

Is the WMA file protected by DRM?

That matters a whole bunch

I guess I sent it to the wrong place

Let me try again

I clicked your name to the left of your post, and then clicked "send email to" that should work I hope.
