    Hi, still trying to get my head round the android way of doing things.

    I've got a bunch of audiobooks on my itunes, they're ricky gervais podcasts and 1 is over 6 hours long. I've converted them all from m4b to m4a but when I've tried to convert them to mp3 using All2mp3 it only converts about an hour of the 6.

    I've also tried using Tuneclone but that doesn't work either because it uses a virtual cd burner and obviously 6hrs+ doesn't fit on a 'cd'.

    Does anybody know of a way to do this, or a relatively cheap program i can buy?

    I have m4a songs on my phone that play just fine using the Google Music app...I don't think you need to convert them.

    Really?! I think it must be the fact I purchased them on iTunes. So I need a solution to the DRM crap lol.

    I managed to sort it, I ended up downloading ondesoft iTunes converter for mac and it worked.

    I have a fresh problem now though. I converted Childish Gambino - Camp and it worked fine and it's on my sdcard but when I go to listen to it, the album is in two parts, tracks 4 and 5 are listed as a separate album. All the info for every track is the same so I don't understand why the music player thinks it's two separate albums. Anyone else experienced this?

    Probably wasn't tagged properly. Try downloading an app like iTag from the playstore (it's free) and retag the mp3s how you like them.

    Thanks, I tried that and it moved them all together but the two tracks that were seperate are now last on the album, I've put the track number in each one and they're still at the bottom. It's pretty annoying because track 5 blends straight into the next one lol.

    That's strange..."m4a" I believe is the NON-DRM file type for iTunes...but what do I know?
