    If not, may anyone recommend an online storage place where I can upload store my mp3s just in case my computer ever crashes?

    No, they do not. There's Amazon Cloud Drive: https://www.amazon.com/clouddrive/learnmore

    Also has a cloud player for your music, should the occasion arise. First 5GB are free, and reasonable pricing after that.

    There will be a service from iTunes for it, near the end of the month called Music Match, it'll be $25 a year, nothing until then, for iCloud storage, though.

    Many people use Google, Dropbox and similar services.

    If you pay $25 a year for iTunes match you can.

    Just get an external HD and backup your entire computer once a week.

    iTunes Match wil take care of your needs. Should be out in the next week or two and will upload any songs that iTunes doesn't have for $25/yr. I have an ~8k song library of which around 1000 songs didnt match and they'll uploaded no problem. Great service.

    i'm going to use my 50GB box.net account. plus Box.net will hold my ALAC files, and won't convert them to AAC.
