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)[1]. 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.

Worked great!
