A few years ago i spent an entire weekend putting all my cd's on my computer harddrive using Windows Media Player. I've used a Rio player with no problems but was thinking about getting an ipod b/c of the extra storage capacity. I downloaded itunes and tried to import from "My Music" folder and itunes tells me that the music is in a "protected WMA format" and can't be imported. Is there a way to unprotect these files? Put them in a MP3 format? help. Also how do avoid this problem in the future when i put more cds on my harddrive?
