Yeah, I had this problem a couple years ago... I started using Windows Media Player to rip my CD's and the damn thing encoded all of my music to WMA... Bastards! So when I tried to move them to my MP3 player, it didn't work (most MP3 players now support WMA... I'm not sure if iPod does, but I doubt it).
WMA is actually a good file format, it's smaller than MP3's and preserves quality, but it's just not very compatable, especially with PC music players other than WMP.
So, I would definitely convert all your WMA's to MP3's and there is an easy option in the Media Players Options>Ripping to change all ripped files to be encoded as MP3's. It's just not default.
