How to convert WMA audio files to MP3 for iPod

I found a program on my computer called Windows Audio Converter. If I change all my wma's into mp3's will I be able to use them on my iPod?

First off, I have to say that I'm suspicious of any software that you just "find" on your computer. In this day and age, if you don't know where a program came from and how it got on your computer, it's probably smarter to avoid using it.

As you know, your iPod can't play WMA (Windows Media) format files and you need to convert them to MP3 format for them to work properly. Fortunately, this isn't too hard if you are willing to download an application off the net.

Indeed, a quick visit...
