    Converting M4a's into MP3's

    Converting M4a's into Mp3's

    I have about 3-400 M4'a mixed in with my mainly MP3-based audio collection (ie, about 1in10 albums is M4a). (most of while i recorded of my collention of CDs) And as my MP3 player (iRiver HP-140) doesnt play M4a's, and im just about to go on holiday for a fortnight, without my PC and trusty winamp, i was looking for a decent program to convert them?
    - I know iTunes will do it, and ive Tryed 2/3 other other audio converting programs, but they all seam very lumpy and naff, and its taking ages!! Any Ideas

    I had a search for simular topics, but found suppresing little when i serched "M4a"

    Yeah, natarally. But as a i say, it only for my MP3 player, so i guess i'll get over it... Most of the time ill just play the M4a's in winamp.

    Ill give dbpoweramp a go, thanks
