For those who wish to play music/songs (in the nook audio player) when those have been ripped in Windows Media Player(found in 'My Music' under 'My Documents" and maybe sync-ed with a portable player, like a Sony Walkman, and have a file extension of *.wma, these files will have to be converted to a mp3 file( mp3 format sound), that is, a file extension of *.mp3 in order to play on the nook audio player. This can be accomplished by obtaining a file converter. A FREE WMA to MP3 Converter may be downloaded from http://www.jodix.com . It has no advertising, spam et. al. I gave it a check with my antivirus program and it is clean. It installs easily and gives simple instructions; I used the parameters it presented and they have worked well.
Important Note: Take your SD or SDHC card Out of the nook and put into a card reader/writer, on your computer or USB type reader, to place the mp3 files on the SD card. If you try to convert the wma files on the SD card while it is mounted in the nook, you may get extraneous files, which will then render the SD card temporarily useless, no files will be read by the nook, then you would have to do the following( I did): remove the SD card from the nook; put it into a card reader, go to 'My Computer' (in Windows Explorer), select the drive it represents, like 'removable drive E: '(on the right hand side of display of Windows Explorer), then go to "File" heading, choose 'Format' and reformat the SD card; this erases and clears it for use. Then put your music mp3 files on the card. Luckily, podcasts are delivered as mp3 files and no conversion is necessary.
Happy Holidays & Listening to Music on Your nook

Thank you so much. I've been wondering how to accomplish this. I'll be having great fun with my music this weekend. Thank you again
