Some older music players do not sync with itunes but require you to manually copy an mp3 file onto them. Here is how to convert a song that you have in iTunes into an MP3 file so you can copy it to your mp3 player.
- Go to the iTunes menu and select preferences, go to the tab called General and click the button called Import Settings
- Select mp3 encoder, and choose a bit rate. (128kbps is the minimum for reasonable audio, above 192 the average listener won’t tell the difference, 320kbps is insanely good)
choose the mp3 encoder
- Now go back to your iTunes music list, right click on any song, and there will be an option called ‘Create mp3 Version’. Click this and it will create an MP3 version of the song and add it to your library.
Create mp3 Version option appears
- Now you need to find the mp3 file that was just made! Go back into your iTunes library and sort by date added. The new MP3 file will be at the top of the list! right click on this song and drag it to your desktop and the MP3 file will now be on your desktop.
