You just set itunes to import songs in MP3 format

preferences > general > CD import settings

Select MP3 as your preferred format.

From then on you can select any tunes in your library and select Create MP3 version from the advanced menu in iTunes

This will create MP3 copies of your AASC files so you may or may not need to delete the AAC versions

You haven't got one of those Windows Media based so called ipod docks in your car by any chance?

Lousihen's given you one answer, another is to use a sound converter, eg. SoundConverter (Mac) - Download.

But, other than space-saving, why would you want to convert .aac to .mp3? You will lose sound quality.

I'm leaving now to go and find myself. If I should return before I get back, please ask me to wait.
