Q: "Hello hello. I'm having a bit of trouble with my iTunes at the minute. I have an album on my computer and the songs are in .wav format, and iTunes not letting me import them. Any help? Btw, my iTunes is at version is up to date."
WAV is an audio format for storing sound in files developed jointly by Microsoft and IBM. Support for WAV files was built into Windows 95 making it the de facto standard for sound on PCs. WAV sound files end with a .wav extension and can be played by nearly all Windows applications that support sound.
However, when it comes to Mac OS, some of the WAV files still can't be loaded to iTunes although it claims to support WAV format. It means you cannot stream your WAV songs to iPhone, iPad and iPod in this way.
