Re: Reformatting back to flac

Hi Mag99

I understand you having to deal with a small hard drive, but converting to mp3 is not really the way to go. When you convert a flac file (which is a perfect copy of a cd) to mp3 you are losing data. Data is discarded to make a smaller file, and it can never be regained. It is a lossy process. You can never share such a converted file on TTD. The whole idea of flac files is that no data is lost.

If you are having trouble with space, archive your flac files to dvd, so that you have the perfect copy always available. That is what I do. What you do after that doesnt matter because you always have the original perfect flacs.

opps, the powers that be posted while I was writing.,
