m4a to mp3 help please.

Recommended Posts

hello all I hope someone could help here. 

I have this flash drive I use in my car to listen to music. Not sure if its the actual flash drive, or if its the car... but it will not play m4a files. Only mp3 and wma. 

Anyhow I am loading music onto it.  I have this album I recently purchased off and downloaded from itunes and it only comes in m4a version.

I looked online on how to convert m4a to mp3, but when I follow the steps provided i see this.... it says these settings do not apply to songs downloaded from the iTunes store...

So is there anything I can do to get them to MP3? !  Any programs I can download? I can't find any help for this.

i use a program called dbpoweramp to convert music files on my laptop ... and it's free 

you may have to download some formats separately from the codec page of the program but it's easy enough to do

I used to always just do it through iTunes - you can convert music bought in the iTunes store.

First make sure you have the import (like importing a cd) on mp3 - go out to  your main library and select the song then to file>convert>create mp3 version.

You should be able to multiple songs at once. Hope you get it figured out either way!

I use a free program called Format Factory. You can find it hear.

You could ALSO download a freeware called Audacity. Make the settings so that you are recording from what is sent out via the audio output/speakers. And then just save the sound file as a WMA or MP3. Windows Media Player, should also have something in it to save things as WMA. But it's been awhile since i used Windows Media Player, so I could be wrong on that one. I use an MP3 player in my car, plugged into the aux port. It can play mp3 and WMA too. I hope this is useful!
