If you want to save space, yeah, I would do it...in fact I did. I just did it slowly so I wasn't overwhelmed.<br><br>Just go to the preferences in iTunes and change it to AAC in the importing section.<br><br><br>My stuff for sale.
Welcome, Taylor.<br>I agree with John that it should be done slowly or get overwhelmed. Frankly, I don't hear any quality loss, but I have been a little too lazy to convert my existing stuff. I just import to AAC the new stuff.<br><br><br>
Converting an existing MP3 file to AAC isn't going to improve the quality at all, but as John and Sross have stated, it WILL save you space on your hard drive. I join them in saying, take your time and convert them at your leisure, and just import all NEW music as AAC.<br><br>

Straight from Apple:<br>AAC: MPEG-4 audio<br> AAC (for Advanced Audio Coding, a big part of the MPEG-4 specification) is the cutting-edge audio codec thatís perfect for the Internet. AAC encoding compresses much more efficiently than older formats like MP3 (which iTunes still supports, by the way), while delivering quality rivaling that of uncompressed CD audio. In fact, expert listeners have judged AAC audio files compressed at 128 kbps (stereo) to be virtually indistinguishable from the original uncompressed audio source. iTunes 4 and QuickTime 6.2 is all you need to get started.<br><br> <br><br><br>My stuff for sale.
