Can iTunes: Convert AAC to MP3?
Can iTunes convert a playlist from AAC into Mp3 and then burn it out onto a CD-R?
Im using iTunes 9.2 for PC.
Tried burning a disc earlier but it would only burn the songs that were already MP3.
And yes, an iPod would be the best answer but mine died years ago and i can't afford a new one

To convert AAC to MP3, open the iTunes preferences, and find the 'import settings'. Change the 'Import Using' dropdown to 'MP3 Encoder' and click 'OK'.
Now when you select File/Create New Version, you'll see 'Create MP3 Version'
(in iTunes 9.2 this may be 'convert to MP3')
I've used this method when creating CDs for playing in the car.
Obviously this will leave you with 2 versions of each song - you may want to delete the MP3s afterwards.
If you normally use AAC as I do, don't forget to change the import setting back to AAC afterwards.

You can pickup an iPod nano or old iPod touch for under $100, close to $50 if you are lucky.
You can also drag all songs from iTunes to a folder (this makes a copy). Then run a mp3 converter on those songs.

You can create an mp3 CD in iTunes by making a playlist of all the songs you want, then selecting "Burn Playlist to Disk" and then selecting "mp3 CD" as disc format.
You don't need to convert the songs manually - iTunes will do it automatically just for the CD. Most newer CD players will play an mp3 CD.
If you tried this already, then perhaps the problem is that the other songs have DRM that is preventing them from being burned to CD.
