I just wanted to report on the question I posted about converting mp4 iTunes files to mp3.
First, to save time, I used Amazon and purchased the 4-5 I needed the song were already in Mp3. It cost me about $20-30.
Second, my friend gave me a site that claims to offer free conversion of MP4 to MP3, but with a 1G limit.
I will try it out when I have more time probably after the holidays.
