Wma to MP3?

I ripped some CD's (that I own) on to my PC and then put them on to an SD card to play in my car which has a couple of SD card slots.
But I have just realised the car is only going to recognise MP3 files not the WMA files that I have put on to the SD card.
Can I convert them from WMA (if so how) or if I download Itunes is that better?
Or can you even just download itunes these days?
I am a bit behind the times so any help appreciated!

I know you have this resolved now but for future reference you can change the output of windows media player (I assume you are using that if the out out is wma) to MP3 or WAV so you aren't ripping then converting each time you do a new CD.

It's in rip settings I believe.

Thanks for that. Actually something strange happened. I downloaded the convertor program but when I tried to set it to work on the files I had put on the SD card it said the card was now write protected so I haven't been able to finish the job! I can't even delete the files and start again either!

On some SD cards you'll have a slidable lock, make sure that's at the top of the card, like this:
