AAC to MP3

Is there a codec that enables such conversion without getting a standalone tool?

You need a encoder program to convert AAC to MP3. iTunes have the ability built in for AAC to MP3 converting, unless you using Winamp. Winamp 5 and foobar 2000 already supports AAC files and you should be able to convert them to MP3 if you install an additional plugin.

Most media players support AAC (m4a) files, so I don't see the point of converting since you lose audio quality by switching file formats, unless your media player only supports mp3 files.

Unfortunately, my Sony Walkman does not support AAC files.

I think I will get a plugin for Winamp 5 later..

Am sorry to hear that your Sony Walkman does not support the playing of AAC files.

Unfortunately, you would need a standalone software to make this happen, if you want to convert the files in order to make them playable on your device.

There are several good tools out there to provide you with quick work of convention.
This does of course have to be done through your computer first before you add the files onto your Sony Walkman.

I suggest you to check out the various sharewares that will do the job for you.

Converting from 1 lossy format to another is not good. I would recommend finding regular mp3s of the songs you want, buying the CDs, or downloading lossless rips and converting those to mp3.

You probably need to put it into an m4a container first. Simply copying the .aac file doesn't do it for me, either. I use Mediacoder audio edition for most of my stuff (CDs/Lossless > MP3/AAC/whatever). Just make sure you have the container set to m4a and just set it to "copy stream" or whatever. No transcoding involved.

Btw, what Sony Walkman is it? I recommend visiting this place for some info.
