    WMA stands for Windows Media Audio. It encompasses four codecs and several file types, but all you really need to know is that WMA is the format Windows uses for the audio part of your Windows Media files and for jobs like recording TV sound. These formats are widely compatible -- inside Windows, at least -- and they play on Windows Media Center, Media Player, and compatible apps, whether or not they're part of a video container. But it's different when you want to play a WMA clip on your MP3 player. For that you'll need a tool (preferably a free one) that can convert WMA files into MP3s quickly and easily enough that you will actually do so. Such as Free WMA to MP3 Converter from Jodix Technologies.

    Free WMA to MP3 Converter opened in our 64-bit Windows 7 system with the Tip of the Day displaying the next thing we were going to mention about this app: it converts all the audio formats covered by the WMA designation: WMA, WMV, and ASF. You can turn the tool tips on and off, of course. "No nonsense" was the first thing that came to mind when we saw Free WMA to MP3 Converter's efficient layout, a square dialog with a main view displaying the program's Task List and a lower panel for Conversion Settings. The control suite is equally simple: Add Files, Remove, Edit, Start, Help, and About. With eight headings, the searchable, indexed Help file is more complex than the program! But "easy-to-use" doesn't mean "stripped-down" or lacking in settings; when you add files, the settings wizard appears. Starting with Input and Output directories and a file info display, it walked us through each step, including bit rate, sample rate, and channel mode, as well as a tag editor. We could add lots of files and convert them all in batches or individually by selecting or deselecting file check boxes.

    We pressed Start. Free WMA to MP3 Converter finished quickly and asked us if we'd like to see the destination folder. We did. The converted files saved significant space and played normally in our usual MP3 player.

      "I'm happy...This did the trick...easily for me"

      April 30, 2014   |   By acropora

      Version: Free WMA to MP3 Converter 1.16

      Pros

      worked like a charm easily

      Cons

      Haven't seen any yet

      Summary

      I don't have occasion to have to deal with wma files often, but the occasion came up and I wanted to convert them to MP3s. So, I downloaded this software and it worked very well and without any problems at all. Others seem to have some difficulty, but if you simply download it, and pass on the Google Chrome download in the process as I did, you shouldn't have any trouble.

      "DO NOT INSTALL - MALWARE ALERT -"

      April 24, 2014   |   By skypunk

      Version: Free WMA to MP3 Converter 1.16

      Pros

      NONE ! I'm still cleaning up the mess...

      Cons

      Somehow this program hacked into my Gmail account because as soon as i installed it (None of the "extras" were installed) and started to convert one song, EVERY one of my google contacts was spammed with my email address enveloped from fiestyfinder.com.

      Summary

      I'm done with CNET. It seems all their recommended programs are filled with malware, spam, or other bad stuff. As if they allow anyone to post reviews and links to these programs from their site.

      "Does not work!!"

      March 02, 2014   |   By Stephen137

      Version: Free WMA to MP3 Converter 1.16

      Pros

      Quick Install

      Cons

      When I tried to convert a WMA file to MP3 I was informed by the program that I needed to buy an upgrade. So much for this program. I should have been more suspicious because of the easy install in contrast to the prior reviews made on this product.

      Summary

      Don't bother.

      "Thanks for the malware!"

      August 04, 2013   |   By couragemichele

      Version: Free WMA to MP3 Converter 1.16

      Pros

      NONE AT ALL EVVVEERRRRRRRR

      Cons

      I went for the CNET rating and really got burned. Had to spend hours removing the wonderful malware that was installed even though I clicked and removed the check mark to install the 'toolbar' which is NOT a toolbar but a horrible nightmare. One program doesn't remove it, plan on spending some time getting rid of it. Oh, and then not even converting the files. CNET should reinstall this and review it again. It needs negative stars. Pain the butt!

      Summary

      Don't be a dork. Don't do it.

      Pros

      There are none.

      Cons
