Help, need to convert M4P to MP3/WMA

So I got a new MP3 player to use on Mt. McKinley because my iPod Mini won't work at high altitudes and now I find out I can't listen to half of the music in my library. All of the songs I bought off iTunes are M4P format and I need them in either MP3 or WMA to play on my SanDisk player.

I've searched the net and have come up with bubkiss. Can anyone help me convert the files?

Thanks in advance.

If you got them from Itunes they most likely ACC files.
Depends how many files you have.
You can burn songs as audio file, and later import them again as mp3 or wma's.

Yeah, I think they are ACC files. I have maybe 3 dozen songs I need to convert.

To convert files to Mp3 its not a problem.
Problem are ACC file associated wit mac.
I didnt seen any converter acc to mp3.
I know its working from acc to audio and audio to mp3.
Use nero burning room to convert to mp3.

tunebite, thanks Chris.

hrglass, I'll try those out, too.


The reason some iPods won't work at altitude is the hard drive. Air pressure keeps the heads in contact with the discs. The lack of air pressure at high altitude means that the heads aren't touching the discs anymore. Also with any jarring motion the heads could bounce off the discs, messing them up. I've read reports from many climbers that their iPods didn't work above 13,000 ft. I've used mine at 11,500 and it worked fine but I'm reticent about taking it higher.

Also, recharging the battery is a problem up yonder. The MP3 player I bought runs off of a AAA battery. Lightweight and easily replaceable.

Thanks, Kirk. As for the reason I didn't get another iPod, I need something powered by a regular battery. I wouldn't be able to charge an iPod on the mountain.


Chris, I'll call you on Monday. Thanks, bro.

Ha ha, holy retro thread...

Anyway, for my "money" tunebite still works as well as it did 4 years ago. It's a nice little software package for removing DRM from songs you own or converting from one format to another.

IPods had/have hard drives? I honestly did not know that. I always thought they were solid state like USB drives.

I won an IPod shuffle at a IVNUA conference exactly a year ago and haven't done anything with it.

It was an iPod Mini, and it had an HD. I'm sure iPods/iPhones don't have HDs anymore and I could take one mountaineering, but there's still the battery issue.

the gigantoid ipods are still hard drive.

I think anything under 32GB is now flash. I know my 16GB nano is flash.

i'm thinking yes..? (at least from what it sounds like, tunebite would work)


So, any suggestions for free software that will convert files? I'm afraid to just start downloading stuff of teh internets.
