You can upload your personal music files in any supported file type using Amazon Music for PC and Mac.

Supported File Types:

File Format Description
.mp3 Standard non-DRM file format (including Amazon Digital Music Store purchases)
.m4a AAC files (Windows and Mac, including iTunes purchases) and Apple Lossless files* (Mac OS only)
.wma* Windows Media Audio files (Windows only)
.wav* Uncompressed music files

Note: Non-MP3 and Non-AAC files that are not matched and cannot be uploaded can be converted to either MP3 (.mp3) or AAC (.m4a) using your computer's default media player. Once converted, these files can be uploaded using Amazon Music for PC and Mac. Please see your default media player's Help section for instructions.
