    I regularly receive songs in WAV format. In the past, I have always converted them to AIFF to overcome tagging limitations with WAV.

    Up until recently, I converted songs from WAV to AIFF by right-clicking them in iTunes, then choosing "make AIFF file" (that's not the exact wording, but similar). Just tried to do so today and found that this option is now missing! Anyone know what gives? Was this removed in the latest version of iTunes [I'm running 9.1.1 (12) ]? Could it perhaps be restored by some command-line entry in Terminal?

    Any help would be appreciated. Tried search but couldn't find anything.

    You could always go via the ADVANCED menu, and that topic (missing .aiff conversion in right click menu dialog) has been brought up recently. If you use MRoogle, you will definitely find more results than with the forum search.
