How to Convert ITunes to Mp3

This is one of the most popular problems that the music lovers facing now for a quite some time. After buying your favorite music online from the iTunes, you can enjoy it using the computer for any long period of time. The problem starts when you try to hear it on the move using your music player (excluding the apple ipods). This is due to the format of the music files being sold out by the iTunes. The formats are Aac or m4p.

Then open the cd with iTunes from where you can directly convert the files to mp3 format, by selecting the files and right clicking and selecting create mp3 version (only if you have already specified the mp3 encoder in the import setting as said earlier). This process would be a tedious one, if there are many songs which is to be converted into the mp3 format as it would require a large number of cds. To avoid this we can use software like virtual cd etc, burning one by one and converting one after another.

You can also the jyhmn converter to convert the songs from aac to mp3 directly, but its illegal in some country (so just check it), and it wouldn’t support the song downloaded using the iTunes of latest versions (latest than the version 6.0). The jyhmn contradicts the laws of iTunes, so it’s better to check before using it in your country.
