How do I convert acc into mp3 using itunes?

Firstly, In iTunes->Preferences->Advanced->Importing make sure the option of Import Using is set to MP3 Encoder.

Then, in your library, ctrl click on song and select Convert to MP3.

Interesting, I didn't know one could do that. What are the advantages and disadvantages between the two formats?

I would say that AAC is better quality for the file size, whereas MP3's are more universally playable.

Just a word of warning: Converting from one lossy format to another will reduce audio quality.

Yeah, but sometimes it is a necessary evil, like the only way to import a song bought on another online store into itunes.

Buy protected WMA or RA, burn to CD, re-rip to iTunes.

Not many people know this, but it's possible to play RealAudio 10 in iTunes. It's AAC inside a RealMedia container, and you can extract the AAC using VLC, then play the AAC in iTunes. I don't know about protected content though.

Interesting. I cant imagine that it would work for protected RealAudio.
