Converting from MP4 to MP3

Hey I downloaded some songs off of the iTunes music store on my Windows XP, and they came as MP4. I selected these songs and tried to convert them to MP3, but iTunes said that it could not because those files were protected. How can I convert these songs?

I don't know about the legali

I don't know about the legality of this, even if it is your own music. I'm going to ask that one of the mods give some advice/consent to my posting of links to programs that can convert/remove DRM.
But there is (to my knowlege) nothing wrong with posting a link to Google

I would try to avoid it if possible Wink

As Performaman said, the songs you download from the iTMS are copy protected and therefore you can't convert them to MP3s. There are ways to do it, however they are not entirely legal.

I know!

I think this is pretty legal:

burn songs to a cd with iTunes
put cd back in pc
Import to Playlist with the mp3 imorting setting on.

Works for me!

Converting

Um, you posted on something that you can just burn the MP4's to a CD using Itunes and then import them from the CD to your PC using the MP3 inport setting, where can I find that setting?
