Hi: I have several albums on my new computer (G5 desktop running OS10.58) iTunes 9--that are in AAC format. When I try to burn these albums, the prompt tells me I can't burn them in mp3 unless they come to the burning in the mp3. I didn't realize the former owner set the import of music cds as AAC. Anyway I want to  convert all my albums that are in AAC to mp3 cause I can't play my music burned cd in AAC in my cd player. In OS panther there was a menu option to do that. In this version of itunes on this computer, the only menu option is to turn a file to AAC. Hummm. Now what do I dp?Any help would be greatly appreciated. Carol

    I don't think you can convert from AAC to MP3 from iTunes...just try to use an application to convert your music there are a lot of converters in AppStore...I used once Smart Converter it's free...or you can choose another application from App Store

    Correct.  iTunes can only burn an MP3 disc from songs already in MP3 format.

    Carol,  You can use iTunes to convert AAC to MP3.  Follow this guide:
