Geeky technical question

Posted By on Tue, Jul 18, 2006 at 8:03 PM

I'm having this problem. I just bought this nifty Olympus digital audio recorder to gather audio for my multimedia slideshows. Problem is, it only records WMA files, and I have a Mac. The software I'm using to synch the photos and the audio track (Soundslides) requires MP3 or WAV or AIFF files. The WMA format makes editing difficult, too.

I've been looking online all day, but I can't find a dang Mac-compatible converter that will turn my WMAs into MP3s. Anybody know of any freeware or cheap software that I can download tonight or tomorrow morning to address this issue, so I can share my nifty Winooski River slideshow with the world?

Also, should I return this recorder and buy something else? If so, what?

Got something to say? Send a letter to the editor and we'll publish your feedback in print!
