Free Easy M4A to MP3 Converter
Full user review
"Convert m4a and some other audio to mp3."
Very easy interface, few clicks to get things done. Brilliant.
I've found nothing so far.
My 14yo brother harddrive crashed big time and I could not retrieve any of his music, which I do not want to think of the all the $.99 songs he lost. He said he could get most of her songs from friends but of course they won't play on his pc or ipods. He wanted me to copy them to a cd and then bring them back into iTunes. I saw myself doing this for weeks. I thought I'll google it and see what was available. I found this program and gave it a try. If it was any easier a 3yo could do it. I copied and put more than 400 of itune files in a folder and created another folder labeled mp3s and launched the program I went to the folder with the add files icon and highlighted all songs and clicked open. Then I set some the format I need to mp3 and got it started. I figured it might take a while but it did not maybe 15-20 min as some were albums. I played several and they sounded just fine.
Overall, this is a simple converter which does exactly what it claims. Like what I said, it has a simple interface. Allows you to convert m4a to mp3. If you're willing to take a hit on file size, you can use the presets provided, very cool.
