“I’m not able to use some of the music I’ve downloaded from iTunes. Why is that? An example file name is “track01.m4a” which was downloaded from iTunes. The error msg reads: “file format not supported” is there a way I can re-format it so that Premiere Pro will accept it? Or anything else I can do to use the music i’ve downloaded from iTunes into Premiere Pro?”

Many people have found that they can’t get songs or videos (movies) downloaded from Apple iTunes store to Adobe Premiere Pro for editing. This post will aid to solve this problem. Firstly, I’d like to look at the cause of failing to import iTunes music and movies to the Adobe Premiere Pro.
