PostSubject: Converting M4a's to MP3's?   Mon Apr 12, 2010 12:25 pm

I recently purchased the new Priestess album Prior to the Fire cd when I saw them live. With the purchase of the cd, you get a card with a code that enables you to download the entire album along with 2 bonus tracks. The problem for me is that they are M4a / AAC audio files (whatever the hell that is) and they play through Quicktime on my work computer. I'm technologically challelenged (ie retarded), so my question is...

Will these m4a files play on my mp3 player and can they be converted to be compatible with my home computer set-up?

.m4a is an Apple (iTunes file) which is why it's opening in Quicktime. iTunes will convert it from .m4a to .mp3.

Thanks for that info.

I'm not an itunes user, but it would appear that the best, easiest and safest way to do this would be to download the itunes app, make the conversion to mp3, then delete itunes.

Sound about right?
