    Hi,

    I bought a Audiobook in itunes
    I want to be able to hear it in a mp3 format for other devices
    is it possible?
    how?

    i tried several software's and online converters after googling. some didn't work, some took very long,
    i am looking for something quick and simple that works

    Thank you in advance

    You probably don't need to convert it. m4b is just aac audio. Everything should read it nowadays.

    Try this:
    Go here to download "All2MP3":
    http://www.tucows.com/preview/753945/All2MP3

    Put it into your Applications folder.

    Open the finder window with the m4b file you want to convert, or have it on the desktop "within easy reach".

    Now, open All2MP3.

    Next, "drag and drop" the icon for the M4b file into All2MP3's window.

    All2MP3 will "digest" the file and present you with output options.

    I suggest you choose highest quality and "let 'er go". The conversion may take a few minutes if the file is a large one.

    I've used All2MP3 quite a bit, and it works well, but keep reading.

    DO NOT -- let me repeat, DO NOT -- choose to "upgrade" ALL2MP3 using their home page.
    It will download a .dmg file that has crapware in it.
    I have no idea why a company that produces such a nifty app as this would do it that way.

    If you download from the link I gave above, and choose to "leave it alone", it will serve you well.
