This is the way with minimal hassle.so what are the steps on converting your music to a m4a/aac format?
1. Open iTunes. Press Ctrl+B to show the Browser.
2. Select an Album with the Browser.
3. Above the list of songs is the row that says Name, Time, Artist, etc. Right-click on this row and choose Bit Rate. Now, look at your album's song list bit rate. Remember it.
4. Go to Edit > Preferences > General tab. Click the button that says Import Settings...
5. This is the most important dialog box here. The Import Using pop-up should be set to AAC of course. Under Setting, pick Custom.
6. With the new dialog box, set the Stereo Bit Rate to match that of your album's or as close as possible.
7. Check the box for Use Variable Bit Rate Encoding. If your Bit Rate is too low, you cannot use this. It would be redundant anyway (usually if you're going to convert a Podcast).
7.5 If you ARE going to convert a podcast, check Optimize for Voice.
8. Click OK till you're back at the main window. For a test run, right click just one song and choose Create AAC Version. Go do something else.
9. When it's done, find the new song (carefully! it looks identical with the same tags) and right click on it to choose Get Info. Witness the space you've saved...or not. Shouldn't be much either way.
10. Lastly, listen to it. Does it sound as good as the original? Are you happy with the results? If so, do the rest of your album. If not, try different import settings and try again.
11. Go find the new songs and toss them onto an SD card. You can find the correct directory by looking up the Advanced tab in the iTunes Preferences window. You're done.quoteIn case your computer doesn't have anything to read SD cards with.yeah and could someone tell me what is the Usb Sd card reader thing for?quoteThey're still audio files. Just their encoding methods are different.So could AAC's be considered similar to MP3s?
Something you guys need to realize that while iTunes is the easy way out, you do it at the cost of time. If you want to do an assload of songs at once (read: more than 100), it's not going to be done briskly. I just used MediaCoder Audio Edition just a few minutes ago to convert a 27-song album to mp4 in about 3-4 minutes. iTunes would probably take 20-30 minutes. MediaCoder is a dedicated audio converter that supports multi-core processors. I highly recommend that over iTunes.
Okay, nobody seemed to have told me about this before but there IS a shuffle feature! Shuffle either through EVERY song or just the songs in a folder! Damn right.
