View Full Version : changing formats...

Jan 9, 2006, 11:50 AM
Hey guys. Sorry for the (likely) stupid question, but I can't find the answer using the search function.

I was wondering if you can change the file types of the songs easily? Currently I have iTunes set up to import as AUC files, but want to make an MP3 disc.

Thanks in advance.

In Preferences set to import using MP3 encoder, then Ctrl-click the songs you want to change and choose 'convert selection to MP3'.

Yeah, but unless you have a gazillion songs, you should encode directly to MP3 format.

The reason re-encoding is bad is discussed in this thread (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=142130).
