Default wma to mp3 conversion?

My Fuze has a combination of both mp3 and wma files. Before getting the Fuze I had ripped over 100 of my CDs onto the Windows Media Player and those are now in wma format with a high bitrate. Is there any way I can convert these to mp3 to save space? Thanks.

Welcome to ABI reedlaw. You could try Media Monkey http://www.mediamonkey.com/ or other similar programs for your audio conversion needs.

Download SUPER. It's free, and converts many files, including WMA and MP3.

If you're looking to save space....re-rip. I went from 192 mp3's, to wma vbr 85-145 target....the sound was better and the files about 60% smaller
Your mileage may vary, however.

Converting from one lossy format to another will only degrade the SQ. It is best to rerrip your CD collection to MP3, rather than converting it.

Agreed, but better still is to rip to FLAC then transcode to whatever lossy formats you need.
