I have plenty of flac files, no problem there. My question pertains to the number of mp3 files that I possess. Should I convert them to flac as well, to preserve the data for next reproduction? The damage may well be done and the flac step unnecessary. Just curious what others think.

Thanks for the opinions.

Once a file is an mp3 (lossy), you will not get back any data by converting it to flac (it will just be a large lossy file). So, just leave them as mp3.

Just as I thought. Thanks again!
