Default Android can't play WMA files?

As we don't have a "mobile phone" section on this forum I thought this would be the best place to post a question like this. If this is in the wrong forum please move!

My brother got a new phone for his birthday yesterday - Samsung Galaxy Ace running Android on it (probably the latest version, ICS). Hes got a 16GB SD card in there and has a whole bunch of songs on the card in the WMA format, but the phone wont play the WMA files? It plays MP3s but not WMAs? Do you know of any apps which we can download which will allow him to play WMA files on his phone? I dont want to have to convert all his songs to MP3.

Thank you in advance.

I doubt ICS, most likely Gingerbread.

Winamp is available for Android, I'd install that. It plays pretty much everything
