Is there a way on itunes to convert from AAC format to MP3?

4 replies 23 views Edited Jan 31, 2012

Although most of the songs that are on my itunes playlist are stored on the ps3 and psp (and hopefully they'll all work on the vita). Just four songs that are stubborn that don't won't to transfer and it happens to be the songs that i really want. With minimal hassel and doesn't require any $$ thanks in advance.

The PS3 and PSP do play AAC. If you have copy-protected AAC, then it may be worthwhile to spend the extra dollar to upgrade your few remaining songs to unprotected AAC in the iTunes Store.

To convert a song's file format:

  1. Open iTunes Preferences.
    Windows: Choose Edit  > Preferences.
    Mac: Choose iTunes > Preferences.
  2. Click the General button, then click the Importing Settings button in the second section of the window.
  3. From the Import Using pop-up menu, choose the encoding format that you want to convert the song to, then click OK to save the settings.
  4. Select one or more songs in your library, then from the Advanced menu, choose one of the following (The menu item changes to show what's selected in your Importing preferences):

    • Create MP3 version
    • Create AAC version
    • Create AIFF version
    • Create WAV version
    • Create Apple Lossless version
