yep, its a sample that i want to convert to mp3, but i can only open it with quicktime, and i can't see any obvious way of converting on here, i'm thinking it might be an apple format!?

What CD recording software have you on your PC?

It MAY be possible to burn the M4A onto an Audio CD, then rip that as an MP3.
