Hi all, Please can someone help me with converting an .m4b file to mp3 so I can listen to it on my mp3 player?

Thank you in advance.

Format Factory will do it. Google the name for download page.

If you have iTunes , the new version 11 allows you to convert their m4p files to mp3. Create a column "Kind" then sort by m4p and create mp3 versions. The old way was to burn iTunes about 20 at time to a CD and re - import as mp3 in iTunes.

VLC player will also do it but the file will be twice the size when converted.

Hi there, Im afraid I don't have itunes. I've just downloaded and used FF and the original m4b file was over 5 hours and the FF version is mp3 but only 59 minutes long? More importantly, it just plays as a high frequesncy screetch sound?

Think Freemake will do it as well >

I think I used this free one last year,

Thanks for that but it will not work. It seems to suggest it is because the M4B file is copyprotected?

You better google that then, not allowed to say on here.

Really? That's a shame because I won the file, I bought it from itunes. Damn it!
