Convert M4a to MP3

I'm very new to this, so please be kind if I'm not as proficient as many of you. I purchased MM Gold because I was told I could convert M4a files to MP3. I have many M4a files on my computer that when I open in MediaMonkey Gold, they play immediately with no issues. I've tried to use covert file mode and it is set to MP3...run the process for each file and it says converted. I love my small Sandisk Clip MP3 players and it holds about 700 songs. After converting these files and moving over to the MP3 player, they don't work. When you hit play, there's 2 seconds of noise that sounds like its playing the song hyperfast, like the whole thing in 2 seconds, then immediately goes to the next song in queue.

Can anyone help me with this? I'm not overly familiar with how all this works and would be thrilled if I could play these songs on my small portable player and not just my computer.

Might these files have iTunes DRM protection? That's something that can't be converted.

Hi,
You can send the download link to one sample M4A file in PM so that I can analyze?

m4a files do not have DRM. m4p do.
