I sit possible to get an m4a music file to run on Windows Media Player please?

If not is it possible to convert an m4a to mp3?

To convert m4a to mp3:
Download i-tunes click here
Go into i-tunes then Edit/Preferences - Advanced/Importing and set mp3 and bitrate, then when you add a track to the library right-clicking gives you the "convert" options.

You might want to watch out for the applications i-tunes tries to add to your start-up settings. Blocking them with your firewall is the easiest option.

I did find WMP codec/addin that let the user play m4as directly, but it was trial period only, so you'd need to convert after that anyway.
