Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

just so things are clear.. if you convert a smaller bitrate to a larger one the file size will get larger..(not much larger… the size will be nearly the same). A larger bitrate will get smaller…  that’s what happens when Converting to AAC.  sorry, i shoulda add’d that earlier just forgot.  have a great time with the new format!!!


Can anyone corroberate my ‘better’ experience… opinion?  (never made a scientific claim.. but..to me.. it sounds better.  ;-)  )

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

Funny thing, everything I’ve converted to AAC sounds….well,  better.  even some ol’ 96 kbps files sound better… The file sizes increased, but everything sounds better…  you can change the size of your AAC bitrate to 192 etc in iTunes.. check the preferences…  and if your mp3 setting is 160 your 128 kbps AAC files will sound sooooo much better.  It’s all in the Listening.  AAC comes from the iTunes Store.  protected AAC to be exact.

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

Ok, so I’ve spent a ton of time downloading 2,000+ songs. If AAC is so good why isn’t it the default setting in iTunes? The default is MP3 160. So what happens when I plug in my iPod? Does it change the format or put whatever I saved into the Pod? Is it really worth reripping all these files? And what file format comes from the iTunes store? Thanks.

iPod Adventures in the Middle East: Part I

WOW spaghetti ur so smart!! i was reading the whole bloody post things and i din catch that either.. i guess i should be more wary. anyways, politics just isnt my thing.. but noname’s intentions weren’t hostile, he was merely expressing his opinion on a picture that he came accross. the purpose of this site is not political, but it’s up to noname whether he wants to expess his opinion or not. but i dont think you should have told t-slice what to do when you said don’t post any more such pictures. u cant really stop him from posting and in the end, it wasnt really a picture of what everyone thought it was right? i happen to be in cairo egypt, and i have a 15 gig ipod. i dont think it’s been in very extreme temperatures, as i only used it indoors or in cars and on the plane, but i think it will be alright. i am not used to the american farenheit, but the temperature here goes up to about 40 degrees celcius. wow, and i was thinking im probably the only guy who has an ipod for a 5 country radius.. guess i was wrong..
rock on everyone

Switching from MP3 to AAC Without Losing Your Mind

I was wondering if someone with some experience in using the iPods on Windows could list some of the “known” bugs plz??

I have thought about buying a 30 gb iPod and i was wondering if there’s more//less buggs compared to 15 gb version or no difference?

And how well does the Ipod work with Usb contacts, does it only work with 2.0 or does it work with normal usb aswell?
Is there any major difficulties making the iPod work at at Pc? Becaue im not that good with computers I really need to know?? :)

Forget about ephpod and mmjb, they are toys, I found this program that integrates my iPod AND my Tivo:

I can stream files from my Tivo, and I can re-record them onto the iPod and transport them. This is NIRVANA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

New iPod Reactions: Accessory Makers and an Author

I have only just bought the windows 20gb ipod and now there is a newer 30gb version with better features.
Think that I will hold out for the next generation model(colour screen?) before another purchase.
Also surely it is possible to download software to improve the features on the windows model on the fly playlisting is a really missing feature??
Get your finger out apple and support your customers!!

The skylite iskin wasnt available at the show, and my order online didnt go through and I missed out on the big sale and contacted them and asked what happened.  That was two weeks ago, I haven’t gotten a response yet :(

My new iPod is great, but WATCH OUT for iTunes 4 if Apple Software Update asks is you want to update to version 4.0.1 when you next boot in OS X and are connected to the Net!

The update itself is slow but straightforward. However, in the process of updating, to my surprise and agony, Apple’s
updater removed all the music I had previously imported into iTunes 4. Since I own the CDs, replacing it is easy, but it takes time I’d rather do something else with.

Fortunately I did not have the iPod connected when the update occurred! Would it have messed up the iPod too?

Will any MP3 player ever catch Apple's iPod?

wow, I just got my 15GB yesterday, and I LOVE it!!!  IPOD is really a great product, for PCs AND MACs…  That said, while some problems are definitely related to XP, I don’t think it’s all XP’s fault.  Apple probably just hasn’t nailed it with their software.  Give it some time, and maybe they’ll get it right…  MusicMatch actually works fine with my XP, but I’m not so lucky on the Ephpod side…  maybe I’ll have to reinstall it.  Or maybe I’ll be looking into that new Toshiba mp3 player… it might just be the opposition we’ve been expecting for IPOD since forever…

by the way, Charles, it’s “YOU’RE”, not “YOUR”...  How many times do you have to be told?  It seems, with all YOUR gramatical errors, that while there’s a possibility of you being as qualified for issues regarding MACs and PCs as you said you are (at least as much as one of what Albert said being true), YOU’RE definitely not very good with English…

Will any MP3 player ever catch Apple's iPod?

Getting an iPod was the best computer-related experience this year. But Oh, my!—does it need more of a manual than the little info sheets Apple supplies!

How fortunate we are that David Pogue’s wonderful “Missing Manual” books now include a new item, and it covers the iPod thoroughly. The author and series editor are excellent. If you don’t know about this book or the series and the links to related software, go right now to www.missingmanuals.com—one of the best sites ever. Lots of info about the books and easy download options for software.

@Windows-users:

Have you ever heard of EphPod? www.ephpod.com - it replaces stupid MMJB and it’s free.

Kind regards.

You can use Media Center to rip/transcode a lot of formats, and script for MP3 or AAC output to iPod
