    I have my reasons for this, and I am aware that, under most circumstances, mp3 is not the best option. But:
    a) I need to copy my library to an mp3-only player, and
    b) Roku only supports mp3

    Is there an easier way to convert 4,500 songs than setting import to "mp3", highlighting every song, clicking "create mp3 version", and manually deleting all the originals?

    check if Doug has a script you can use.

    this one in particular might do what you want.

    If you proceeded this way, couldn't you then sort by type/encoding and do a batch delete?

    I hadn't thought of that. Thanks!
    Also, "Jolly Giant", Thanks for the reply!
