    Hello!

    My dad uses iTunes, and wants the music on his Kindle. He has been trying to 'sync' the music, but after 2 days has given up.

    I selected a bunch of his music, chose export as mp3. iTunes shows as being busy, and makes dumb tone, presumably signifying completion of task.

    Searching for mp3 in files, there are none. This is why I do not use iTunes, but was hoping any issues with proprietary formatting might have improved.

    Help my dad!

    He cannot "sync" his iTunes music to his "Kindle". As for the exported songs, they should appear right in your music library. Do you not see any duplicate song titles? One in m4a format and the other in mp3 format?

    Yes, and to add to that the converted files will be in the exact same folder on the computer as the original files.

    Thanks. That is what I thought, for whatever reason, iTunes folder tree is a mess. Going to do a clean install of iTunes.

    Was the computer updated to Win 8? In Windows 8 the place where the iTunes media is kept changes.

    OK GL I know iTunes on Windows is a pain.
