I was wondering if that was the problem(ITunes not playing FLAC). I'll give foobar 2000 a try. But, does foobar 2000 play(and Burn to CD), 16 bit AND 24 bit? Thanks........CUTZ

Foobar definitely plays 24 bit files without a problem. However, to burn them to CD you first have to convert them to 16 bit, I have no idea if Foobar does that or not.

Go to our Software Links in the FAQ. You need Traders Little Helper, if on a PC, or xACT, if on a Mac. I'd say they are almost mandatory for any sort of lossless downloading/trading.

O.K., but how do i convert 24 bit to 16 bit? The player i use(Winamp), will play the 24 bit too, but it won't burn to disc. Thanks.....CUTZ

You need audio editing software. Audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/windows) is free, multi-platform and will do the job. Adobe Audition and Sony Soundforge will also do file conversion but they are not free. I use Audacity on Linux personally. A little Googling will also turn up some other programs.
