How do you change iTunes music into music you can put on a MP3? Answered

Picture of

I got an MP3 for Christmas and I know how to change format by burning  a CD{wrest of problem in next sentence}. Also when I try to burn a CD most of the songs won't burn. Please can someone help me I want to have it done before school starts again{ long bus ride is at least 45-60 minutes long}. I don't know if it matters but I have windows and,and my MP3 is a Sandisk sansa clip+. I have included a picture of what it says and a picture of the MP3. The first one to respond and have the correct response to work I will subscribe to.

A directory of your iTunes library will show you that that the files are in "m4a" format. The ones you purchase on iTunes are also encrypted, in which case you're stuck. The rest (e.g., files you ripped from CDs) you can convert using utilities you can find via Google.

Not necessarily - it's my understanding that some songs purchased on iTunes are DRM-free (how magnanimous of them! :-\ ).

You could download Audacity and re-record 'em - not fast or neat but you seem to be stuck here.

Actually, it can be converted to .mp3s via iTunes.  You just have to make sure you have that encoder selected in your preferences. I'm not sure about .m4as, but there are other programs you can download and use to (illegally) convert them.
