Getting Around Music File Incompatibility...

Ok.. the reason it took us this long to buy an iPod, other than cost, was the fact that there is no one mp3 player that can play the multiple music files (AAC,Windows Media, mp3, wave, etc.).

I found a way around this by accident. I was ripping a mix cd I had made that included several songs I had downloaded from Napster into iTunes. The songs on the cd ripped and converted into the AAC format perfectly. This is a rather cumbersome effort since it requires you to rip your purchased songs from Napster first and then upload them onto iTunes, but that's exactly what I plan to do tonight when I get home.

You know what they say: the nice thing about standards is that there are so many of 'em.

Careful--my iPod doesn't accept certain AAC files--the audiobook ones that are supposed to contain a tag for bookmarking the stopping point (I can't remember the file extension). I had to manually rename the files to get 'em on my iPod.

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clift...
