    Is there an app that will play WMA files? I downloaded PowerAmp and it only plays in fast forward on my Droid Pro.

    PowerAMP plays wma files if they are not DRM protected.
    Otherwise, you get that fast forward thing.

    You need to look at it this way: the files are DRM protected so that they are playable only on the device/software for what it was purchased.
    So, trying to find another app to play these files doesn't solve the issue.

    Either get other music files, or search on internet on how to remove DRM protection.

    If possible, try converting them to mp3 format, that should be supported by any reputable media player app.

    I don't think you can convert DRM protected files to mp3 just like that...
