Did I miss something? M4a (AAC) downgrade to MP3

As you will know I love my MP3 DVD's...

But my problem has been my iTunes collection was all burn't in AAC (m4a) format... not BMW compatible.

Converting backwards from AAC to MP3 is not something iTunes or many other programs want to do, with the usual suggestion being convert to a CD then re-burn in MP3 - ugh!

Tune bites is way too slow for 70Gb

So I just used the applet in Nero Premium reload - Encode audio files- and it lets you back downgrade the AAC files - very fast - to either MP3 or MP3 Pro. :rocks:

By the way anyone tried or knows whether MP3 Pro works on BMW? ... probably not I guess..

But Nero has just save me reburning my entire collection again!

If you only want to convert AAC to mp3, you can do it over the iTunes, simply.

First, you need to change iTunes setting for importing songs;
Go to Preference-Advanced-Import Using "MP3 Encoder"

Then you can right click any of your AAC files and see 'Convert Selection to MP3.'
Of course you can change the bit rate of mp3 from your iTunes-preference.

Hi Dave.

Unfortunately, the current e9x software audio decoders do not support mp3Pro- you may be able to burn them & get the car to play them- you just won't hear the intended higher frequency decoding.

All the best.

Great that works too... I am so glad I raised this now... I have asked lots of people and nobody mentioned that method before....

BUT still, has anyone tried MP3 Pro to see if it works in the E90?.. and answered before I could even type my reply... thanks Viv..

Thanks for your help

Dave
