    Hi - I have some podcasts that come in via AAC format (unprotected) that I'd like to split up the AAC file and save as individual MP3's - one file for each chapter in the AAC. Additionally, I'd like each MP3 file to either be named based on the chapter information or have the ID3 tag use the chapter information (instead of just the generic ID3 info for the whole AAC file). I did several net searches and couldn't find a way/tool to do this. Any ideas? The reason for this is that I save the MP3's to data CD that I can then listen to in my car. It'd be great to see the track information display the actual song (so, display what was in the chapter detail in the AAC file). I currently just convert to MP3 and use MP3trimmer to create separate files, but these become just generically named/tagged files.

    Thanks!

    I'm trying to do the same thing... did you ever find a more automated solution?

    No, I haven't. Would love to hear if you find something to do this. Thanks.

    I wonder if they're still waiting for the answer three years later.

    Ahh, all your posts are linked to your website...
