Today I bought some songs on iTunes and want to put them on my MP3 player, which is not an Apple product.
The songs are in MPEG4 format, which can be converted to AAC format, and all I know about both of these is that neither will play on my MP3 player. iTunes used to have a "Convert to MP3" command, but this appears to have been removed in Apple's bid to dominate the earth with proprietary formats
I downloaded a free MP3 converter application from the CNET website, but for some reason it won't recognize the iTunes files in either format, even though it lists AAC as one of the formats it will convert.
I suspect this horrible problem may be G-d's punishment for compromising my indie/alternative tastes with a Taylor Swift song , but does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can accomplish this conversion? Many thanks.
