Using iTunes 11.4 on my desktop iMac running 10.6.8. If I import the albums somehow would I have to change them from .wma into a format iTunes could read? Thanks.

Quicktime doesn't support .wma files without using a codec component like Flip4Mac. You will need to convert the file to something that QT and iTunes support using a program like switch or, if you have a Windows comp, iTunes will convert the .wma for free.

Hi Bud: I do have Flip4Mac on my machine, I never knew what it was for. Anyway, I tried to convert the .wma files using the Switch default output file as .mp3 but 'an unexpected error occurred', twice. Hmmmm. Don't know what to do next with Switch. 

 

I do have access to a Windows machine, I think it has iTunes. I guess I can copy the .wma files onto a flash drive then use the Windows machine. Would I open the files with iTunes then tell it to convert the files to, what, .wav? How would I do that? Thanks.

1. You may prefer to follow this guide to import WMA to iTunes.

It also applies to import WAV, CAF, VOC, DTS, AC3, etc to iTunes.

 

2. If you use HandBrake, it also can convert WMA to iTunes format.
