View Full Version : ACC to MP3

Jan 16, 2006, 03:38 PM
I searched the boards and didn't see any results for this, but I'm curious as to what programs are available for ACC to MP3 or WMA conversions. I'd like to keep a copy of the music in ACC, but just need to also have it available to me in WMA or MP3 so I can play it on my Xbox 360 without plugging in my iPod.

This might do it for ya http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/7392
And you want to convert AAC files to mp3, right, or do you want to convert the whole ACC (http://theacc.collegesports.com/) to be an audio format??? lol

iTunes will convert AAC to MP3 (but not WMA). It would be a waste to download extra programs for this.

i use itunes for this. (it's aac, not acc, btw). note that one should use a higher bitrate for the mp3s to maintain audio quality. e.g. if the aac is 128 kbps, i'd recommend a minimum of 192 kbps for the mp3.

If it's music from the iTunes Music Store, it's DRM protected and you need a program like JHymn (http://www.hymn-project.org/) to remove the DRM. Note that JHymn will only work if you have never purchased anything from your account using iTunes 6.
