I've read and it says I have to convert music to an audio that the kindle will take. I can't read anywhere where it tell me how to do this. Has anyone done this. Seems to be harder with an iphone then an android from what I've seen online. I normally can figure out by going online, but not this time. Thanks if you can help.
I don't use either, but I do a lot of file converting for other stuff, so maybe I can help.
First did you buy the music from Itunes? If you did, you may not be able to convert them, as Itunes has some nasty DRM in thier files. If you search for removing Itunes DRM you might be able to get around it, but its not legal. Its one of the big reasons I don't buy from them.
I'm guessing that the Fire won't recognize the music files you have, which means they're probably in ACC format. From what I've read, the Fire will play .mp3 files, and since Ipods play those too, that's probably the format you'll want to put them in.
Assuming that you're not dealing with DRM, open Itunes and go to edit --> Preferences--> General --> Import settings --> Select MP3 Encoder then click ok.
Then back in the main music list right click and select Create MP3 version. Itunes should create a .mp3 version of the file that you should then be able to load onto the Kindle.
My version of Itunes is a few versions old, so the exact instuctions might be different, but the theory should be the same. Hope that helped.
Yeah, my wife discovered the apple DRM issue the hard way. Downloaded the new Black Keys via itunes and put it on her phone, wanted me to burn it to CD so she could listen in the car without having to wire up the iphone to the line-in and use up additional phone battery life (which, being an iphone, is barely long enough to handle a moderate length phone call as it is!)
Regretfully had to inform her that Apple DRM prevented her form being able to put that music anywhere else, including the kids phones or my computer.
She won't be doing that again. Went and bought the CD of the new Black Keys too (it's quite good, check it out if you like music with that retro flava)
You have to directly copy it from the source computer to the kindle fire or upload it to the cloud. Music from the apple store is probably a different issue. I haven't seen an itunes app for the fire yet.
Thank you everyone, You answered my question and that is what I came up with . I read that itunes and iphone arn'te working together. The music would have to be convert. Thanks for your help.
