oh no not this question again

please use mp3 for your ipod only and keep the FLAC files for future trading. cdrs are cheap these days.

you can convert directly to mp3 using dbpoweramp or foobar2000

put the files in foobar2000, highlight the ones you want to convert, right-click and select convert>run conversion and select one of the LAME options.

if that doesn't work for you get this http://dbpoweramp.com/

don't forget never trade mp3

hope this helps

I would strongly suggest converting to aac for your iPod. They are smaller and sound better than mp3. Go to Preferences > Importing and then change from mp3 Encoder to AAC Encoder.
