    I was encoding a song to mp3 today and ITunes just stopped encoding a song. The song never ended up in my library, which is good, but where did this partially encoded info end up? I'ld like to delete it if I can. Thanks

    If it's still on your system somewhere, it'll probably be in /tmp. This is where the music videos on iTMS end up once they've downloaded.

    I doubt the file is written until it's done encoding. Don't worry about it, even if it was on your system, it would be a couple of megs anyway-- Next time you do a clean install, whether two weeks or two years away, it'll go then...
