WMA, acronym of Windows Media Audio, it is a relatively new audio format launched by Microsoft after MP3. Since WMA is better than MP3 (and far better than RA – Real Audio) in the aspects of compression ratio and sound quality, it can bring users joyful auditory feast even at low sampling frequency. WMA files are used and transferred frequently, but this increases the possibility of files getting lost or deleted accidently.
