Editors' Review

+

Like many similar programs, this tiny freeware utility converts audio files among four popular digital-audio formats: WAV, MP3, WMA, and OGG. But Free MP3 WMA Converter succeeds where many of its peers fail: it provides a simple, reasonably attractive interface that puts commonly used features up front and less common ones where they don't get in the way.

Conversion is a simple matter of dragging and dropping the source files to the application window (or browsing to them), selecting the output format, setting any advanced options, and hitting the start button. The program comes with a basic yet convenient utility for editing file tags, and a separate audio ripper with built-in support for FreeDB.

If you're looking for a simple, effective, no-cost audio-conversion app, Free MP3 WMA Converter is a natural choice.

December 31, 2009  |  By dynamike33

 |  Version: Free Mp3 Wma Converter 1.81

Pros

its quick, easy to use and free, and it works

Cons

Hmmm really havent found any

"Pesky toolbar and forced firefox extension"

December 31, 2009  |  By mpats

 |  Version: Free Mp3 Wma Converter 1.81

Pros

Description looked good on cnet download.

Cons

Intrusive. Crashed when I added flac files. Obligatory toolbar installation, it can be removed but you'll get a new extension in Firefox that says it will protect your search settings when in fact it takes you on a phishing trip - no daddy will help.

Summary

Didn't work as promised and it certainly not clean as promised - I wouldn't call spyware free an obligatory shopping toolbar and hidden extension that takes your browser off in different directions. I had no use for it - just a headache to get rid off.

"Product wouldn't work after I installed it!"

December 27, 2009  |  By ghr54321

 |  Version: Free Mp3 Wma Converter 1.81

Pros

I was never able to test this product, so I can't say anything good about it.

Cons

After reading mixed reviews, I decided to download this. Upon downloading and installation I went to try this product. I received a 'run time error 429', Active X component can't create object. I've never had probs installing anything before this.

Summary

it didn't work for me, it may for you. Like I said, this is the 1st time I've had any problems like this pop up. hmmm....

"Does the job, and for free"

December 25, 2009  |  By dtutelman

 |  Version: Free Mp3 Wma Converter 1.81

Pros

Converts wma files to mp3
Easy to use
Free

Cons

Perhaps a bit slow, but not bad.
Can't drag and drop to desktop icon.

Summary

It does the job I wanted it for, with almost as easy-to-use interface as possible. (You can't drag-and-drop files to the icon, though you can to the open application.)

Contrary to some reviews, this works fine with Windows 7 (even the 64-bit system on an AMD chip), and imports no viruses or spyware. Details of the latter:

I was careful during installation to REVIEW EVERY CHECKBOX on the installation wizard. Some were clearly invitations to be bombarded with ads. Make sure you set those to opt out. (If you failed to do so, I can see how you might conclude that your computer had been invaded. If you did that, I bet you also sign contracts without reading them.) After installation and a couple of uses, I scanned my computer with Lavasoft AdAware, and then with AVG anti-virus. NOTHING!!! So this software is safe, unless you choose during installation to make it unsafe.

Enjoy!

(Upon looking again at the existing reviews, there might have been some actual viruses in somebody's download. Perhaps they downloaded from a source other than CNET; that's where I got my copy.)

"Works fine, but always wants one to buy the payed vers."

December 22, 2009  |  By 1joker1945

 |  Version: Free Mp3 Wma Converter 1.81

Pros

Works great

Cons

After a while it askes to register free, but the registering is not available any more, so it bothers after each and every prozess again.

Summary

If it calls it self free, it should be free. If a paid version geves one any extras or if it ask one to get the paid version every time one starts the program, thats fine with me, but not this way.
Otherwise it seems to be a nice little program, did not keep it for long.

"Very easy to use to convert IPOD mp4 to standard MP3"

December 21, 2009  |  By waiheketranscend

 |  Version: Free Mp3 Wma Converter 1.81

Pros

Very easy to use. Easy to install. Easy to understand how to use but be careful to watch where you are sending the converted songs. Mine ended up in the same folder as they came from, which meant had a duplicate of every song.

Cons

None really, just a little bit slow in the converting of songs from MP4 to MP3

Summary

Brilliant! Thank you to the developers.

 |  Version: Free Mp3 Wma Converter 1.81

Seemed like a cool freebie.

Could not use.

"The program worked great but installed a virus."

December 13, 2009  |  By froggybabe1

 |  Version: Free Mp3 Wma Converter 1.81

Pros

Converter worked perfectly

Cons

Installed a virus called zwunzi.exe I noticed the process running in task manager. I also noticed some issues with search engines re-directing my default search provider to another service.

Summary

Don't install this program unless you want a nasty virus that re-directs your default search provider. Research what I am telling you and you will see that there are many who have discovered this little nasty.
