Hi -

I've got a PC using Windows 7 and I am looking for a free media player that lets me play and transfer WMA files to an MP3 player.

Anything but Windows Media Player.

Thanks!

Try VLC.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I don't know about anyone else but since windows me to windows 7, I have been using media player classic. I personally like K-lite mega codec which includes media player classic. Also might like Winamp media player. As for transfering media to mp3 player, don't know what kind you have. But on my sandisk sansa you can transfer media without any software by right clicking and sending song to the mp3 player.

Thanks for responding - I've got a Sansa Express and the M250.  Will that work for them?  Is it that I use the USB and when it is connected it will show as an option when I click the song?


Try VLC.

Thanks!

I've been using KMPlayer for years and it works fine. Last version is beautiful, altough I'm not completely used to it yet.

I have a Sansa Clip + when I am charging through my usb, I usally add a song or 2.  All I do is right click the file and send to my sansa player and that it. Never bothered  installing any software that came with it. I am using a Laptop with Windows 7 to do this.
