You've gone into the General tab in Edit > Preferences, clicked on the Import Settings and changed the 'Import Using' to MP3 ? If you want to then create MP3 versions of your existing songs you should be able to highlight them in your iTunes library and select Advanced > Create MP3 version

I cleared my SanDisk and picked one song and followed the instructions from your link. It still will not play on the GPS and still shows it as a Mpeg-4 audio file. I want to pull my hair out over this.
You are copying the newly MP3 version of the song to card, and not the original music file ? The 'create mp3 version' creates a second separate version of the song, the original version will remain in your library
I now have a mp3 version but my GPS will not play it. Maybe I need to contact Garmin and ask for help. There is a possibilty I had two issues. At least one of them seems to be solved. Thank you

I tried what you said. All looks good until I select a song, go to "advanced", and select "convert to mp3". Get a window that says: "None of the selected files were converted because they could not be found." Please help. (I got a Sandisk mp3 player for husband for Father's Day and he still can't use it.) Also, keep in mind that I'm a tech idiot.
Thank you. Persis

I use iTunes 11 and did the following to create a ringtone. Pref>Import Settings>AAC Version. Highlighted the song>right click for Get Info>set start and stop time and Ok. Then right select on the highlighted song>Create AAC Version and get this: None of the selected files were converted because they could not be found. What am I doing wrong?

The album is on my iMac and was purchased on my iMac a week ago. I noticed yesterday that my iTunes preferences were showing MP3. I immediately switched from MP3 to AAC. Then I changed the entire downloaded album to AAC version which worked. Get Info shows now as AAC. And yes each song does play.
