    Is there anyway you can convert a whole library of Ipod tunes to a different format such as MP3 or WMA?

    They are currently stored as Apple Lossless

    Yes you can highlight however many tracks you want to convert and the right click and there will be an option to convert to whatever your default is set to. The trick is to set your default to either MP3 or WMA in your preferences 1st.

    You can also use dbpoweramp. It supports Apple Lossless reading and will transcode to a larger variety of formats than iTunes will.

    I don't mean to hijack the thread but can you do it the other way round ?

    I have a Creative Xen with all the tunes started as WMA files, I want to transfer them all to my Ipod.

    All the tunes are on the player and not on my PC's HD (for space reasons).

    I'm a bit crap with all this and don't want to balls it up !

    Thanks for any advice :)

    iTunes will import the wma files and convert them to a standard format like mp3 or AAC, but the converted files will be put onto the hard disk in the process. From there you'll be able to put them on the iPod.
