Thanks a bunch! This is a really easy way to convert all my purchased iTunes songs. I almost downloaded a converter, but checked here first.
I have tried this on several of my purchased songs and it won't convert since they are protected. I was really hoping this would have worked. Oh well.
Ya, same thing happened to me when I tried it. I think it would only convert the songs I purchased recently (since iTunes took away the silly protection) because some songs I'd purchased converted while others didn't. You can figure which are which by adding "kind" as one of the things iTunes sorts your songs by(like title, artist etc.), and it will tell you the file type.
You may use the best software I have seen AVS Video Tools. It can convert to/from all key format, upload video or DVD directly to key portables like iPod, Sony PSP, Archos, Zen Creative, and mobiles.<br/>It can capture video from DV or webcams, TV tuners, DVB-T, DVB-S, transfer VHS tapes to DVD, remove commercials, edit video, copy and burn DVDs and video files: AVI (DivX, XviD, etc.), MP4, WMV, 3GP, 3G2, QuickTime (MOV, QT), SWF, DVD, VOB, VRO, MPEG 1,2,4, MPG, DAT, VCD, SVCD, ASF, H.263, H.264, RM, DVR-MS.<br/>There is the free download link:<br/><a rel="nofollow" href="http://topsreviews.com/video-converter/video-tools-avs.html">http://topsreviews.com/video-converter/video-tools-avs.html</a><br/>
Im having trouble with this. I am not getting this general format when I go to advanced in the proporties I can't switch any of this to importing. I don't have a mac I am working with WindowsXP. Unless it is my version of itunes.
now how do you get the music onto your non-ipod mp3 player?
Whats the diference between a mp3 and mp4?
mp3 is the old type of music style mp4 is only in the new MP4 players (genius isn't it) since i have an mp3 player i needed to convert it to mp3
I've done this since iTunes 5 and it doesn't work with the new iTunes files.
i dont think it works with itunes music that you buy
way to convert secure mp4 from Itunes store: Burn a mp3 CD, then import it! The files wont be secured anymore.
Correct.... Any file that works in iTunes... Except m4p - I think that's the tag; I stopped using iTunes a couple years ago. Something about proprietary music that only plays on a proprietary media player sours the deal.
its mp4 not m4p unless your talking about something else
m4p ;) They are the protected files you won't be able to convert.
