How to Convert an iTunes Song to MP3

Songs in your iTunes library may consist of music you've purchased from the iTunes Store, tracks you've copied from an audio CD onto your computer using the iTunes software, or music you manually transferred from a folder on your computer into the iTunes library. You can transfer songs saved in the iTunes library to MP3 format, which allows you to add them to an MP3 player or create an MP3 CD.
