How to convert m4a file format to mp3?

I want to be able to Add songs to Nero Express so I can burn them to CDs, but Nero Express doesn’t recognize files that end in m4a. I have 164 songs in 19 folders that all end in m4a, type MPEG-4.

Is there an easy way to change the file format to mp3 or some other format that Nero will accept?

Thank you for replying to my post.

I typed dbPowerAmp into Google; ended-up downloading dbPowermp and installing it.

I put a CD containing music into an external CD/DVD Player. The CD contains 16 tracks type cda. I wonder, what should I do next, run dBpoweramp Ripper?

dBpowerramp sees the files. It wants to know:

  1. Rip to, I’ll say mp3 (Lame)
  2. What Path, I’ll say Shared Documents\Shared Music
  3. Naming? (Save in Dynamic Artist Folder)
  4. CD Drive, Drive E
  5. Target: Quality (VBR)
  6. Encoding Normal

Its ripping.

Thanks, Catch you latter.

It worked to a degree.

I was able to rip a CD with dbPoweramp and form mp3 files that could be added to a burn list in Nero Express. However, when I tried to use dbPoweramp to convert m4a files to mp3, it didn’t work.

How can I convert the files already in m4a format?

Thank you for your help.

I was able to install bPowerramp with mp4a codec and use it to convert m4a format to mp3 and rip CDs to mp3 format.

My next task will be to design a cover for a CD and enscribe it using LightScribe. Any advice?

I appreciate your help with the format issue.

Thanks again.

Download the Switch Sound File Converter from:
