The Easiest Way to Convert iTunes to AAC
People cannot play the songs they have bought and downloaded for their iPods outside the iTunes environment, because the songs are in DRM protected AAC or MP4 format to prevent piracy or song duplication. However, there is a way to convert iTunes to AAC, and the process depends on the fact whether the files are DRM protected or not.
Convert Non-Protected iTunes to AAC
You can use iTunes to convert the media files to AAC format. To do so, you need to:
Step 1: Launch iTunes.
You can double click the iTunes desktop icon or launch it from the Start menu programs.
Step 2: Set import settings.
You can select Edit -> Preferences -> General, press Import Settings, change the Import Using to AAC Encoder, and then save these settings.
Step 3: Convert iTunes to AAC.
Now, you can go to iTunes Library, right-click a music track and choose the option which reads Convert Selection to MP3. If the track is not protected, you'll be able to convert it to AAC format. However, if the track is a protected one, iTunes will pop up a window telling you that the protected track cannot be converted to other formats.
