View Full Version : .aac to .mp3?

12-21-2006, 10:51 AM
Hi, I used to use iTunes a lot for music, but I've discovered I can't actually do anything with the music except play it in iTunes and on an iPod. However, it will only work in iTunes and no where else. Does anyone know of a way of converting it legally. iTunes won't do it as it recognizes it as the music store music.

You could burn a CD and rip that CD as mp3 format.

Use the converter found here
and go to the codec central page and download and install the m4a plugin.

Try QTFairUse (http://hymn-project.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1553) or myFairTunes (http://hymn-project.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1555). QTFairUse6-2.4 works for me, haven't tried 2.5...

QT probably won't do a direct conversion (.mp4 > .mp3) but it will convert to .m4a, which iTunes can convert to .mp3.

I found a new program, NoteBurner (http://www.noteburner.com).
It can convert aac to mp3 in easiest and fastest way I have seen.

Not in the US.

It might be. You would need to check your local laws to find out.
