Convert .wma to .mp3?

Got a really mini mp3 player (optional flash type {1" x 1 1/2"})
cant figure how to convert my ripped CD music from wma format to mp3 format so that the mini player will play it.
i have HP, MSvista, and over 5media applications but none seem to tell me HOW to convert.
Do I have to re-save the file as: *.mp3 and how to I do that when the media player doesnt have the file save as function key option?
DO I file it into a compression file?
or do I open it in my music or media player then opt properties and change settings to "save disk space" ?

How do you download music to an mp3 player from a cd?


Hello,

Normal audio CD tracks should be converted to mp3 files onto the computer's hard drive, first.
This is called ripping or RIP function.
There are several programs that can RIP audio CD.
It is important to convert music into the correct bitrate for the player to match for playback. (192 kbps is good quality and often used)
You can use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 for conversion.

When you use WMP 10 or 11 and the player is detected in the program:
1. Tell the player were your music library is: setup your music library.
2. Create a playlist; make playlist name and add mp3 files to the list.
3. Synchronize the playlist with mp3 files to the player.

If the player cannot be detected in WMP 10 or 11, but only can be viewed as a removable disk in "My Computer" : use the "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" method to put mp3 files from the computer onto the player.

When needing more help, don't hesitate to write a comment in this reply.

I dont have any music to start loading my mp3.How do i get music?


Two options:
1) Sign up for an online music service, or
2) Load songs directly from a CD

When choosing an online music service, find one that only gives you the songs in Mp3 format - all other formats will be either incompatible with your player or will give you headaches down the road. The other value of getting an mp3-only service is that you will be able to use the songs later if you decide to let your music service subscription lapse. Rhapsody has an Mp3 Only service, but be very cautious - Rhapsody has about 6 different subscription levels, and only one of them is an Mp3 Only service. There used to be dozens of other choices besides Rhapsody, but not anymore - most other major music service either folded, went with a DRM-protected WMA format, or went with an AAC format (iTunes).

To load songs directly from a CD, use Windows Media Player. Open Windows Media Player 11 --> run your mouse over the Rip tab --> click on the arrow that appears under the Rip tab --> Select "Format" --> change to mp3. Then put your CD in the computer's CD drive and click on the Rip tab -> it will convert the songs on your CD to mp3 format so that you can load the songs onto your mp3 player.

Good luck!

I cant get music


Music - the newer Philips players do not support DRM-protected files. You will have to use songs that are in Mp3 format, or songs that are non-protected WMA's (NOTE: non-protected WMA's generally are only converted from CD's you own. I don't know of any music services that use them).

Video - the installation CD should have come with a program called the Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter. If you have lost your installation CD, you can acquire this program from the Philips website. The program must be used to convert and transfer videos to your Philips.

You may have WMA (if u used windows media player) which will not play on the shaker  (i had this same ploblem btw) you can easly find free music file converter software to change these files to mp3 or wav types (which i did), or you could rerip to songs from a cd and tell the windows media player to rip the files as mp3 types instead of the default wma format  from the windows media player widow :
tools >> options >> Rip Music >> under format select mp3 (theres a wav option but i used the mp3 option to be safe)

Connect your player to the USB port on your computer using the USB connector on the Mix Max. A 'MIX-MAX' window will appear in your My Computer folder which is the player's internal memory. To add more files and songs to your player simply drag and drop MP3 or WMA files from anywhere on your computer into the 'MIX-MAX' window.

For Windows XP, you can utilize Windows Media Player 10 software to convert music on an audio CD into MP3 or WMA format as follows:

Open the Windows Media Player 10 Browser, then click on the 'Rip' icon on the top tool bar. Insert a Music CD into the CD-ROM drive of your computer.
Click on the 'Tools' menu option at the top menu bar, then click on 'Options'; the Option setting menu will appear. Click on Rip Music and set the Rip music to the desired location on the newly ripped music (MP3 format or Windows Media Audio format). Adjust the audio quality as desired. When finished, click 'OK' to confirm the settings.
Click on the 'Rip Music' icon to start ripping the music to your computer.
When the music tracks are ripped; connect the player to your computer. Open the 'MIX-MAX' window and open the ripped music location window.
To add the transferred/ripped music file/songs to your player simply drag and drop the MP3 and/or WMA files into the 'MIX-MAX' window.
When the files are finished loading into the player, follow the 'Safely Remove Hardware' procedure as shown below.
Note: For Windows 98SE, Windows ME, and Windows 2000, please use the Windows Media Player 9 to convert music on an audio CD into MP3 or WMA format.

Downloading WMA files with DRM using Windows Media Player 10 (for Windows XP)

To download WMA files with DRM, follow the procedure described below using the previously installed Windows Media Player 10. Before beginning the procedure please turn the unit on and connect the unit to the computer as previously described.

Open the 'Windows Media Player Browser 10' and click on 'Sync'.
Click on the 'Sync List' pull-down menu to locate the music files you wish to download. Then make sure to click the box next to the files.
Select the Portable Device that you want to copy to from the right side drop-down menu. Click 'Start Sync' to start downloading the WMA file(s) with DRM to the Portable Device.
After finished downloading all the desired files to your unit, follow the 'Safely Remove Hardware' procedure as shown below.

ERROR


The SA6045 will only play unprotected .MP3 & .WMA audio files. It will also play .WMV video files.

Sounds like the tracks you are trying to play are DRM protected. This usually causes the "File format not supported" error.

If you are downloading these files from the internet, then you'll have to look elsewhere for files.

If you are ripping your own CDs to .MP3 or .WMA with Windows Media Player, then you need to change a setting in Windows Media Player.

Open Windows Media Player. If visible, click on "Tools" then options. If the menus are not visible, right-click at the top of the Media Player Window, then select "Tools" and click options.

Click on the "Rip CD" or "Rip Music" tab (depending on version).

Remove the tick from the box next to "Copy Protect Music" (or similar)

This will stop DRM protection on any further tracks ripped.

You will need to rip any DRM tracks again.
