    I used to be able to create m4a files on my g5 with OS10.3.9. There were different formats (besides mp3) that could be chosen in the "advanced" menu of iTunes "preferences". I don't see that option in my iMac OS 10.5.6.
    Can this be still be done?
    I understand that m4a is a better quality file that also takes up a bit less space than mp3.

    It is now in the General panel of the preferences area. Just click import settings.

    creating m4a files

    Thanks so much. It's great when the solution is simple.
    I wonder why I couldn't find ".m4a" when I ran an iTunes "help" search.
