I'll give it a shot. I'd really like a way to be able to translate
protected AAC and WMA without waiting for a burn, rip, and reencode, not
to mention having to manually refill the ID tags.

Hi Matt,

dMC does indeed convert WMA to MP3 on-the-fly, but not sure about
protected WMA (I had forgotten that this was what the original thread
was about!). No harm in downloading it and giving it a try though I
suppose, seeing as it's freeware and all...

Matt.

Thanks, looks cool...I was actually referring to the virtual CD writer
part, though. Does dMC do that? (in other words, eliminate the need for
a physical CD-RW burn)

Thanks

Matt

Hi Matt,

I use dBpowerAMP Music Converter (dMC), works very well and can use LAME
as the encoder. 100% free too ("which is nice").

Get it here:

HTH,

Can you recommend a package that runs on Windows for this purpose?

Thanks

Matt

or use software to create a virtual CD writer that really just stores
the data on the HDD, but presents itself to the OS as a hardware CD
drive.
