Changing File Format

Is there a way to change the format of a file so NOOK will support it? Such as, I have several audiobooks I bought off iTunes that I can't play on my NOOK. I noticed it said audiobooks have to be in mp3 format. Is there a way to change it to a mp3 format? I really don't want to purchase the same book twice just so I can have it on my NOOK.

 

Thanks!

Re: Changing File Format

Go to Google and search for mp3 converter or "whatever audio" converter which converts TO mp3's.

 

For all other text formats I use Calibre which you can also find via google....so simple to use. An invaluable tool.

 

Good luck.

If you're using Windows search for Tunebite to convert to MP3.

For Mac try Audio Hijack Pro.

 

Tunebite works by rapidly re-recording audio as it plays and saves it in the format you choose.  It's very fast .  The Mac product may work the same way, I've only used Tunebite.

 

Calibre will not convert DRM protected material.
