    I have a library of over 7000 tunes in wav format wich does not support ID3
    (Artist, Album, etc. innfo) tags. However, I have all of the artist and
    album info in my WMP 11 library. I want to convert to wma format and have
    WMP 11 add the info to the wma files. Help please.

    As the name itself says it a player not convertor. But it has a functionality
    to rip your audio cds to wma. Burning your file to Audio cd and then ripping
    is a crazy stuff. You can use Microsoft Windows Media Encoder to convert your
    files. It is freely downloadable at
    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/forpros/encoder/default.mspx

    Thanks for any suggestion or reply from your side.

    Thank for the advice, Vanshaj. I will try using the encoder and will let you
    know if it works out.

    My concern is this: I ripped all of the tracks from my own CD's using WMP
    11. I have been advised about a number of wav to wma converters which I have
    not tried yet becasue each time I was warned that they will not pull the info
    out of WMP 11 to create ID3 tags with the correct track info. Since I have
    the info in WMP 11 I am looking for a way to get this info out and into a
    format that supports ID3 tags.

    Any Additional advise will be greatly appreciated.

  4. There's a slightly better way to avoid boredom. Once you have the WM
    Encoder installed and tried it a bit, the WM Encoder SDK comes with a
    sample program called "batcher.exe"

    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/...f5-d62b-4303-bb22-f0c0861be25b&displaylang=en

    It takes your preferred audio encoding settings, and you can then load
    a complete directory of files to output overnight, all using the same
    conversion settings.

    Make sure to test the audio encoding on some representative samples of
    different genres first, to avoid disappointment ;-)
