Possible to convert MPEG-4 Audio?

  1. Jul 12, 2004 #1
    I recently bought an iPod, and with it, I downloaded iTunes. When I bought music from iTunes it came in MPEG-4 Audio format (.m4a, MPEG/AAC). Is there any way I can convert these files to another format (preferable .wav, .wma, etc.)?

    A quick google search turns up this:

    Also, if you have a Linux machine, Mplayer supposedly can read MP-4 files and write them out as .wav files.

    Alright...thanks. It worked, but unfortunately the unregistered version only lets you convert files under 2 minutes. Oh well, I guess it's better than nothing.
