    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.

    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.

    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.

    I've done this since iTunes 5 and it doesn't work with the new iTunes files.
