imports music from CDs in the AAC format. However it is possible to configure it to import it into MP3 format . To do this:
- Open iTunes
- In the menu bar, click in the "iTunes> Preferences> General"
- In the General tab, click the button "Import Settings"
- In the window that opens, open the drop-down menu to the right of "Import Using" and select "MP3 Encoder." *Then click on "OK"
