Hello,

We are trying to convert our ipod m4p audio files to mp3s so that they can play on our generic mp3 player.

What's the best way to do this?

Thank you,

Bob

hmm try super and just disable the video aspect since you are workin with audio only
open super disable the video aspect and drop the audio on go to the first tab OUTPUT container and put that mp3 r/click the interface and check where it will save to so you can find later
hit encode

Audacity will do it, but you'll have to actually play the file and then set up Audacity to record from the line in on your computer.  Not too hard, but you'll have to experiment with it to get it right.

I'm burning to audio or mp3 cd (CD-R) from itunes, then using windows media player to separate the mp3s.

Will that work?

It should work, but you'll be wasting CDs.  Here is a link to several direct sound recorders.  You'll play the song through iTunes and then have the program record it into MP3.

Easiest and pretty cool free tool is WinFF. You may download the same from Google:

Am sure even a layman could use it with ease. Good luck.
