I just searched and it doesn't appear that anyone else has had this problem. We have a bunch of Digital Voice Recorders here that students use to record voice overs. They generate wma files. Is there a way to import these into FCP? I tried to import them to FCP - nada. I tried opening them in Quicktime and Garage Band - neither of those worked. Has anyone figured out a work around?
Why can't Steve JObs and Bill Gates just get along??? :)
You can download the Windows Media components for Quicktime from Microsoft, then open the files in QuickTime and export to AIFF and you're good.
Or, you can play the files in Windows media and use a double-male audio jack like to link your headphone out to your audio in on your computer and record them into QuickTime that way, although you run the risk of getting other system noise and degrading the sound. I've found, tho, that this is what I'm usually stuck with when trying to strip audio from a muxed MPEG2 file. Such fun!
