I have recently upgraded Itunes software and the music files appear to be in new MPEG4 format. AM now having difficulty in transferring music from library onto MP3 player. Am assuming the two are related, if so can anyone help?
thanks

Good afternoon Jono and welcome to Bleeping Computer!

What MP3 Player are you using?

I dont use Itunes personally, but i am aware it plays and records in AAC format,which most MP3 players will not play. AAC is what Apple use as there main music file recording quality for the Ipod. There are some other players out there that will work playing music in the AAc or MP4 format,but not many. The majority of MP3 players will play music either recorded in MP3 or WMA (Windows Media Audio) format.

The music you have stored on Itunes will be recorded onto your PC in AAC format. In order to transferre music to your MP3 player you need to go into the settings and change the software over to MP3, have a look. It might even involve having to import all of your music back to your PC again in the new format.

If you cant find the appropriate setting,try visiting the Itunes web site and go to the help section, there is probably a link in the player software itself. Likewise, you could hang on here and wait for someone who uses Itunes to give you more advice on this and what they have done.

While you are waiting, if you transfer those files or recopy them from CD into Windows Media Player,then you should be able to transfer them to your MP3 player from there with ease.

I hope you get it all sorted!

Regards,
Graveangel

in itunes, go to edit --> preferances --> advanced --> importing and change "Import Using" to mp3 or wav. next, highlight the songs that you want to convert and go to the Advanced tab, and then Convert Selection or Mp3 (or wav.) remember to change it back if you want to convert songs to AAC and let them automatically be converted when you import cds.

i hope this helps :thumbsup: its the method that i use.
