Although there are a wealth of programs I am familiar with on Windows and Macintosh to convert WMA audio files generated by an Olympus WS-210, I wasn’t sure how to accomplish the task in Ubuntu Linux (Intrepid Ibex).
While I was eyeing some interesting command line solutions, I stumbled on a simpler solution–a GUI program called Sound Converter.
Freephile shares the tip here:
Using Synaptic, I innstalled Sound Converter (soundconverter). This will give you a GUI to do conversions, with the added benefit that it uses a tag reader to preserve all tags — except that it didn’t preserve the tags. Sound Converter (and Amarok) read the tags from the .wma files just fine.
