    Hi,
    I recently acquired some music files and am finding it impossible to import them into iTunes, I am told that they are unsupported file types. Is there an easy way to change them to Mp3 or any other type of file that is recognised by iTunes?? Do I need to get some kind of file converting software?

    if anyone could help I'd be extremely grateful, as this is getting pretty annoying!

    thanks, Beet

    I'm not sure, I'm actually at work at the moment and don't have my powerbook with me. If it helps the icons are mini blank white pages, instead of the reassuring green itunes mp3/aiff ones. I just had a look in the itunes forum (I guess I should have checked that first) and saw that Sound Studio (which I have) micht be able to help?

    If they are a fairly common audio type that iTunes doesn't happen to support yet (such as Ogg Vorbis), you may not need to use anything other than a (beta) plugin for QuickTime.

    try and open it up in Sound Studio. if it does and the Waveform shows up and it plays, then just go to File -> Save As, and make sure you save it as an MP3, 192kb/s or greater
