    I have a macbook pro and I want to transfer my music, photos, videos to my new windows vista pc because I'm going to use it as a media center. But windows media player does not play ACC or MP4. Is there any way I can transfer it easily?

    There might be codecs for the WMP, that support AAC and MP4, but if you bought your music in the iTunes Music Store, it won't play in the WMP, because the music is encrypted and only iTunes knows how to decrypt it. You could however burn the tracks to CD and rip them but that's a pain..

    is there any reason you can't just download the windows version of itunes (when it is made compatible for vista)?

    Probably because it's not a 10ft interface. And Media Center is considerably better than Front Row if you are using it as a more or less dedicated media center.

    A display with all elements visible from 10 feet away on a TV. It's a general term for an HTPC interface like the Front Row / Microsoft Media Center display.
