    .. Songs to a .Mp3 file?
    If I do that myself, by putting .Mp3 after the file's name then there always comes .band after .Mp3.. :(
    Does anyone know a program to convert these songs to .Mp3 files?

    Uhh... GarageBand itself.

    Share, Export Song to Disk

    It's there.

    Already tried that, but I need to convert it to a smaller file.
    And I don't need to import it to a disk I need to post that song a site.
    But they say the file is to big if I converted it with itunes.

    Then export it as an MP3, you're probably exporting as a aiff file. You have to compress the song. Then after you've exported it (shared it) then you can upload it to your site. If the song is too long, then it will be too big to put on the site.

    NOTE: changing the extension of a file will not convert it (no duh) that's why when you change the extension of your garageband file it doesn't change anything (you're just renaming it).

    AAC video, AAC audio, and MP3 files are interchangeable just by changing the extension.

    I never said they weren't. I just said that it wouldn't convert the file when you change the extension.

    What are you getting at?
