mp3 collection on ipod


Well-known Member
Ive been reading away on this forum and realise that i should have ripped my cds in flac format but i havent they are all in mp3 (100 ish albumns)
Im not prepared to re-rip them.

I was going to buy a ipod 30GB but the guy in the shop said that the software with the ipod would transfer the mp3s i have into another format which would mean a further loss in quality. Is this right? If so would i be better to buy an mp3 player that allows straight transfer of mp3s?

Sorry im an ipod virgin :blush:

Nope. The iPod will take and play MP3 fine. Plenty of peeps rip to FLAC for use in their Slimserver and then batch encode to MP3 for their ipod.
