I have bought some run music from audiofuel ready to put on my MP3 thing. I got redirected to ITunes to buy it. Now it is in some weird format that I can't use. I have been trying to convert it to Mp3 for hours, but I can't. Is this a conspiracy to force me to buy apple stuff?? HOWL of despair.
Disclaimer: I do know that this is a first world problem. But I have invested way too long trying to sort this out - do I have to accept that I have thrown my money away on this music?
pinotnoirismyjam thanks but that doesn't work. When I get to the bit where I right click, the option to convert doesn't come up. I think that guide is for when you want to convert music from a CD - not from music you have bought from itunes. DuchyDuke I have googled. I have googled a lot. I think maybe you can pay to do it, but I haven't found a free way yet. I don't want to pay twice - I've already bought the music! So frustrated. I hate apple. Please do suggest other ways to help. Or just share my pain!
Uselessmale1 - yes. I should have never used itunes. But there is no other option I can see for buying something from audiofuel (running music people). So I thought I'd go ahead and that it would all work out. No! KentishLady2018 I thought if you had bought into the apple way, then things would be straightforward. That they are punishing me for not having a ipod but a (much cheaper) non-apple mp3... but it sounds like things are bad even if you have an apple product (like I'm guessing your phone is?)
I am an avid apple user and even I hate iTunes. I never use the bloody thing anymore (thank god for Spotify) but it was riddled with constant issues and restarts. Imagine backing up your phone and trying to restore it but iTunes keeps crashing and corrupting half way through - it would take hours just to update my phone. Beyond frustrating
Can you not request a refund and tell them that you can’t access the content? Apple are good with refunds.
Bungaloid!!!! Thank you!!! You have solved everything. I have downloaded a free trial of dBPowerAmp and it can convert things. I will convert everything, and then not buy again from itunes (Ihastingsmakeup I hear you, I should not abandon apple necessarily, just itunes) and I can totally stop complaining.
FreudianSlurp thank you too. I may try that once the poweramp thing trial ends.
Mumsnet is really brilliant. You go on for a rant, and end up with your problems solved. Anything I can do for you all to say thank you?
