I'm planning on getting a Windows Phone 8 mobile when they are released and of course they do not support Apple Lossless. I've decided to just convert my whole music library to WMA Lossless so that it will all work but I'm having trouble finding a way to convert my files.

If it requires converting to FLAC or some other lossless format first and then converting that to WMA Lossless that would be OK as I have a pretty fast computer but I'm stumped. If anyone has any advice I would appreciate it smile.gif.

Not sure you can count on WP8 supporting WMAL:

Why not download foobar2000 and LAME and transcode whatever you want to carry around into MP3 -V4? I couldn't find an up-to-date tutorial, but this video is pretty close:

I know it can be a hassle to maintain two libraries but if that MSDN article is correct you don't have a lossless option. Given the typical environment and background noise when using a portable device, you'll probably not miss it. And you'll be able to fit more music on your phone.
