Is there a free online converter for odm, wma and mp3?

Is there a free online converter for odm, wma and mp3?

Fyi, odm is over drive media which many libraries have.

Have come across some converters which initially appear free
but once install see that it is a "free trial" that requires a license
or requires you to buy it to use.

If nothing free, what is next best (least expensive but works well)?

Hoping someone can help. Want something I can use long-term.

Thanks!

I just looked around a bit and it looks like ODM files are converted to protected WMA files by the OverDrive Media Console. Short of something that can crack the WMA encryption I think you would have to burn a CD then rip it to get rid of the DRM.

Have seen converters but none free. Can't burn CD at this point. But thanks anyway.

Thanks will try it but is a trial version and then must pay for it. Maybe there isn't
a totally free converter?

Maybe instead of burning to a CD, it's possible to create a bin/cue or .img file of the audio cd. Then you can mount the image file and rip it like it was a real CD?

thanks but I don't want to burn it as a cd. Just want to convert the file and then transfer to my device.

I am not looking at the program now and don't know what you are trying to convert.
The program may allow you to transfer from one area to another. If it is a library book
that you are trying to convert, OverDrive media would be the place to copy item to so you
can convert. Do a google search for instructions on how to... and you may be able to find
the answer you need.
