I have an Olympus VN-88500PC voice memo recorder and I can get the WMA-recordings onto my Mac, but not into iTunes – what can I do ?
iTunes for Mac doesn’t import WMA audio files (even though it seems like for some reason iTunes for PC does…).
So you will have to convert the WMA into a file format that iTunes does understand like MP3 or AAC, before you can import the recordings into iTunes.
There are a lot of audio converters available on the Mac, but a lot of them won’t allow you to convert WMA-files. Others might suggest Switch or Tunesify, but I would recommend Smart Converter, as it’s FREE, it has a simple user interface and it creates small MP3s.
my source was a 30MB WMA-file,
Switch (FREE version) turned it into a 225MB MP3-file, even though I was using the “small file” option
Tunesify (the €3 version) turned it into a 180MB MP3-file,
and Smart Converter (FREE version) turned in into an MP3-file of only 45MB (using the “Music” conversion option)
Smart Converter is available in the Mac App Store :
…and after the WMA-to-MP3-conversion is done, you can just drag & drop the MP3-file onto the iTunes window to import.
