I just recently went through my cd collection and ripped them onto my computer with itunes. Now I want to stream them through my networked xbox 360, but the xbxox does not reconize the file type. I wouls just go through and do it again with WMP but there were 1000 and some songs. Im wondering if anyone knows of freeware programs that will convert the itunes file format into the windows media player format. Thanks in advance :whistling:

This is a smoewhat tricky problem as its avoids DRM which is debatably illegal, although it is more legal than not to remove it to me.

I myself have accidentally done what you have although i meant to use AAC but forgot to turn off copy protection, what i use is winamp and the only success ive had with converting to another format is using a certain rather tricky winamp plugin as many of the apps about arent free, HOWEVER there are many websites dedicated solely to un-DRMing your aac so you can put them in something useable by the majority or non apple hardware i would look on those as they are more able to help than we are due to our TOS here.
