    Problem with duplicate files.

    I have many music files in wma that I want to convert to mp3. They convert ok, but then instead of one selection in mp3, I have two; one mp3 and one wma.
    Obviously I want to get rid of all the wma. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for any assistance.

    The converter adds the new format version. If you want to then remove the original file you can delete them in the file explorer. Note that converting from one lossy format (wma) to another (mp3) will result in additional sound quality drop.

    Is there any setting I can use to make it automatically delete the wma file?

    Include the DSP effect 'Delete Source file'

    Some advice, backup your wma files before proceeding!
