WMA Music files to CD
« on: July 28, 2006, 08:40:38 AM »
I am looking for a free CD burner without spyware attached.  ???   I don't mind advertisments.   I have some WMA files that I would like to burn to CD and be able to play on my CD player.  I can find ones that change files to MP3 files but I don't know if you can play those on a CD.

Hi roro,

Consider this: http://www.blazemp.com/convert_drm_protected_wma.htm

Good cd forum: http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=184897&page=2

Use only in situations where it is legal to do so.'I do not think the free tool RpIt4Me is still available for you, now the knowledge is getting around"

You may find  rips slow down to as low as 0.4x when removing the arcoss. The Arcoss was four times bigger than anything seen before. It took twice as long to fully rip. The DVD was brand new so it wasn't anything like scratches. And it was used to get one private duplicate, which is legal to do in some parts of the world. Is this still so in the USA? Some places are scary to visit.

Colombia criminalises DRM cracking 10:49AM
Colombia is the latest country to criminalise copyright violations and introduce stiff new penalties.

President Alvaro Uribe has signed laws that increase both the maximum prison term, from five to eight years, and the minimum term from two to four years.

The laws also introduce criminal sanctions for the violation of technological protection measures. Cracking DRM systems or even copying restricted content is now a criminal offence.

New penalties have also been introduced for anyone providing fraudulent information regarding the distribution of public performance or broadcasting fees to copyright owners.


Protection comes in now more and more, but as a reaction distribution methods are finding new legal forms coming around like the spindle system, open source oriented youngsters are already miles ahead of the older grey goons and masses, (hear me say this when I am nearing 60, but staying young at heart).

Outwitting tem is the only defense you have in restrictive commercial "cuckoo-land".
Or go work in a museum, and you work outside some of the general restriction rules.

Well, not all WMA files are DRM'ed.

If you're looking for very good free CD burner you should check out this one:
http://www.cdburnerxp.se

It's my personal favorite right behind NERO7. It's also capable of burning WMA files to Audio CD's. Adware/spyware free and very easy to use.

Thank you Polonus, Bob and RejZor for all the links.
I am not downloading files from the Internet, but I did have some songs that I had converted from a CD to WMA and wanted to convert them back so I could make another CD to put in my vehicle.  They aren't DRMed., but I left my CD's in my Winter home, and just have access to the songs on my computer.
I am aware of copywrite rules and am wary of downloading both songs and movies from the internet.
I have installed  JetAudio, and finally downloaded the manual.
I burned my first CD and it works great.
