    I've got an odd request.

    Nearly all of my music is ripped from CD into Apple Lossless format for inclusion in my iTunes library.

    Now I will be using a car stereo that will play MP3, plus a couple others (but not Apple Lossless).

    I want to make a select few MP3 tracks to dump on a USB stick for this purpose. I have the original CDs, or i can convert from the files currently in my library. However, I want to take a lot of caution to NOT mess up my current library.

    What's the best way to do this? I know I could import into iTunes but then I'd almost certainly mess up my existing files. Thanks for any insight.

    Just follow this guide to create an MP3 version. It won't do anything to the original.
