How to convert ITunes .m4a music file to .mp3 format

I was just given a bunch of ITunes .m4a music files. Unfortunately, I don’t own an IPod. Are there programs that will convert to .mp3 format? I have a little over 3 gb of files, so the program should be able to handle whole folders and not just one file at a time.

You might want to take a look at dbpoweramp audio converter,its one of the best around. Soneone there should be able to help you.

Thanks. I’ll give it a try.

I couldn’t find anything in this forum at first as I was listing too much info in the search field. Once I figured that out, I found a bunch of different programs.
