So I've found my old iTunes login from way back in early 2000's (that's old in computer time lol) when iTunes first came out. And I've got a ton of songs I purchased from it. Well I've stopped using it a long time ago. But I'd like to convert those songs to mp3 and keep them since I purchased them.

I've been researching how to convert them but I've come across most pay for software, which I'm find with. But it's expensive for a one time weekend project that I'll never use again. And some of the sites look dated and not sure if I want to hand over my financial information know what I mean?

Does anyone know here of a free way to convert AAC files to mp3? Any tips and suggestions would be great thanks!

i use a software called switch (i have a licence for mine but i think they still offer some kind of free deal) for my itunes music... anyway the trick to any converter for sound is to unpack it to a wave file first then repack it into whatever you need

Ah thanks for that conversion tip! I think I came across that piece of software, Switch, in researching this. I did come across a way via burning your songs to CD then ripping them. However, I haven't purchased blanks CDs in years. And I don't even have an optical drive on my laptop lol. Plus I've got almost 400 songs on it and if I did purchase an external and CDs that would take forever and a day to burn and rip SMH.

I just might have to break down and purchase some conversion software.

when you rip something, it doesn't HAVE TO be sent to a burner for blank CDs (just a default setting on most software) ... hell even Mediaplayer gives you options
