X-Mini Happy: your festival essential 2011!

“Extravagant, perhaps, but this tacky-sounding gadget is one of our favourite festival frivolities. Acting as a regular MP3 player playing tunes from a 2GB SD Card, when twisted it concertinas out into a quite brilliant-sounding speaker.” (Pocket Lint – read the full review here)

There always seems to be a problem with iTunes! Converting audio format advice is available though!

Every week our resident tech expert tackles a couple of problems our customers are facing. Get this advice first hand from our tech expert!  Feel free to leave us comments and more questions, yours could be answered next time around.

This week’s questions:

  • How can I convert my iTunes music in M4A format into MP3 so I can play it on a player that doesn’t support Apple’s music formats?
  • I’ve bought a set of Jaybird Sportsband 2 headphones to use with my old iPod Video, but I’m not sure of the adapter I would need for this iPod. Can you help?

How can I convert my iTunes music in M4A format into MP3 so I can play it on a player that doesn’t support Apple’s music formats?

Apple have published a guide on their support website to show how you can easily convert music from within iTunes into a range of other formats including MP3.

I’ve bought a set of Jaybird Sportsband 2 headphones to use with my old iPod Video, but I’m not sure of the adapter I would need for this iPod. Can you help?

With the iPod video you would need to use the Jaybird uSport adapter. This connects into the headphone jack of the iPod. The uSport will work with any iPod or MP3 player via the headphone jack.

For iPod Classic and iPod Nano owners, you can use the Jaybird iSport which would plug directly into the dock connector on the iPod, but it’s not supported by the Video.
