wma converter

I am trying to convert some cds I have put on my laptop whcih are wma files to mp3/wav so that I can use a new gadget I have for a mini-disc player. However all the cd files are "protected" and the software I have downloaded (DBpoweramp) says that it wont illegally convert files. As I'm doing this purely for my own use is there any software avaialble which will do this for me?

If you have Nero, you can purchase an add on that will do all of this for you.

Nero wont do the job at all if they are protected. When you download many mp3 files from the net you say whether you want to ...
a. download (stays on pc and cannot be copied to external media.
b. download and burn, which costs more and allows you to copy to cdr.

When you download them, the appropriate licence is downloaded with it to allow or prevent copying to cdr.

In media player you can go to file, copy, copy to audio cd. Find the wma file and click copy.
It will come up with an error if the licence is wrong. Nero will also stop you copying it.
