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.

A fourth option:
Using JRiver I have a playlist with all I wish to have on the phone.
This playlist is synced to the phone.
As space on the phone is limited, all is converted on the fly to MP3 in the process.

If needed JRiver can create a transcoding cache.
Any change made in the tags in main library is applied to this cache as well.
This saves me the burden of maintaining 2 libraries.
