The Samsung Fascinate supports the following Audio/Music Formats: Enhanced AAC+ , MP3, unprotected AAC, and unprotected AAC+ formats. Usually it is easier to convert the itunes M4A or M4P to MP3 audio files,
this allows you to transfer them easier. Be advised that unprotected files are usually M4A and M4P files are protected.

Alter the settings to the settings you want. (itunes version may differ slightly) Then, click Ok and then go back to the main window of iTunes. Select all files you want to convert to MP3 and click on "Advanced" and "Convert Selection to MP3". M4P is DRM protected, please be in accordance with the law when converting these files.
