I purchased some songs from the Nokia Ovi Store and the file format for these songs is WMA. I attempted to place these tracks in to my itunes library in a bid to have iTunes convert them for me, however they are protected files and so it is unable to convert them. Is there any possible way for me to convert these files in order to play them on my ipod or my new iPad I just booked last week?
