@Kees_B, I've tried free wma to mp3 converter 1.16.
I had the following error:
"please update Windows Media Player to version 7.1 or above, and DirectX to 8.1 or above"
That was really strange, because at the moment I had DirectX 10.
this is why I'd just got annoyed and uninstalled it.
I've got a lot of files, which I'd like to transfer. That's why I'm interested not only in freebies, but also in some qualitative shareware maybe.
Also I'd like to add that one of my criteria is speed. I'm looking for a fast software.
Any ideas?

I've done it with Microsofts audio converter from the Plus-pack for Windows XP (Media Center edition). Worked quite nice, but isn't available any more. So as long as I have that XP PC in a working condition, I don't need to search for other software.

Maybe other members can recommend other software.
But why not continue searching yourself? Quitting the search after one program that didn't work doesn't seem the best way to find one that works for you.

Danisoft from memory spammed these forums heavily. No sale for me.
