Can anyone help? I have attempted repeatedly to convert the purchased MPEG-4 to MP3 to no avail. Any help will be greatly appreciated

    How are you trying to convert?

    What happens?

    It's not possible to convert an MPEG-4, which has both video and audio, to MP3 which is audio only.

     

    Assuming that you simply want the audio but not the video part, what you actually need to do is "record the audio into an audio programme" so that it can be saved as an MP3.

     

    Is that what you are trying to do?

    Try using FileWiggler.com, anytime I've had trouble with compatibility, I found the correct conversion format there. I have tried multiple times to do what you have on iTunes, just in order to make an mp3 cd for my car with more songs that a regular audio cd. It is frustrating that you cannot do this with the music you have purchased on iTunes. The best option by far is FileWiggler, I hope this can help.

    You can very easily do it.

    Simply select MP3 CD or Data CD.

    In order to make an MP3 CD, the files must already be MP3 but converting is simple.
