m4a converter

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My mate gave me a song which is a .m4a format. I have tried to convert it using a number of programs, some don't recognise the file, others convert it, but into really poor quality (despite having options set to high). Can anyone recommend a good piece of software (Preferably free) that can convert them without losing quality.

He gave you an m4a file? You can use itunes to convert to mp3, no?

As far as I know, DRM'd files cannot (should not) be converted...but if you rip a cd (like I have on my work computer) and itunes imported it as either m4a or AAC, I was able to convert the disk to MP3.

Well, she ripped a disk for me and it came out as .M4A and then it was put on my USB drive. I didn't notice till i got home that it was .M4A, and i don't have the correct software to convert it.
Any ideas?

Oh, and it doesn't have DRM on i don't think.

Google (its your friend): m4a converter

Xilisoft is one, its shareware, not freeware.
Other than those u find, I imagine iTunes will let you move it to an audio device if thats what you're trying.

And even though its not a .m4p (DRM-enabled) file, that doesn't mean its legal to copy it...

When ripping with iTunes, its a good decision to always rip as mp3 if you plan on not using it with iTunes...
