    Is there any way to convert the songs on my iPod to AAC without having to remove them, convert them, then put them back on? Thanks:) (1Gb's getting a little tight!) Will making all the songs 128KB AAC save space?

    There is no way to convert them on an iPod. The conversion must take place on a Mac or a PC.

    Whether it would save space depends on the format they are in now. If they are currently 128 kbps MP3 then re-encoding them as 128 kbps AAC will save no space at all. If they are currently at a higher bit-rate then a re-encode to a lower bit-rate will save space.

    Well a lot of my albums are 320MP3, and some are VBR, whatever that means. I'll re rip my cds then:)

    VBR is "Variable Bit Rate".

    The link has more details, but basically:
