Convert MP3, Wav and Other Media Files into AAC or M4A Formats Using iTunes

1. First download iTunes if you don't have it:

Download iTunes

2. Now install it and run the program. We'll need to change a few options.

3. Click on "Edit -> Preferences".

4. Now go to "Advanced" tab and click on "Importing" tab.

5. Select "AAC Encoder" from "Import Using" list and select "Custom" from "Setting" list. As soon as you select "Custom" option, it'll show a new dialog box.

6. Select "64 kbps" as "Stereo Bit Rate", "44.100 kHz" as "Sample Rate" and "Stereo" as "Channels". These are standard values which I found best for a quality media file. You can change them according to your requirements.

7. Now click on OK and and again OK to exit the Preferences box.

8. Now we have customized all settings to convert files into AAC format. Now open any media file by pressing "Ctrl+O" or by selecting "File -> Add File to Library" option.

9. It'll add the file in Library window. Now right-click on the file and select "Convert Selection to AAC" option.

10. That's it. Now sit back and wait for a few seconds. iTunes will convert the file into .M4A file which you can upload to your cell phone.

11. You can mass convert files into AAC. Open multiple files and select all of them and follow Step 9.

12. If you are wondering where is your converted file has been stored? Then go to "Edit -> Preferences" and click on "Advanced" tab.

It shows the folder location where iTunes will store the music files. You can change it using "Change" button.

That's it.
