    Ok... so i used to always import songs using mp3 encoding. I recently decided that i don't want to use that anymore, i'd rather use AAC.

    Is there a program out there that i can set to convert and it'll go.

    Only if it will go faster then iTunes.

    Thanks,
    jeff

    whats wrong with the speed of iTunes? if you are importing them from a cd, it can only go as fast as your cd drive can read.

    I'm not sure I understand what you want. Do you want to take your existing mp3's and convert them to AAC, or re-rip all your CD's into fresh AAC files? Because converting MP3's to AAC will actually lower the quality of your music further due to the extra compression.

    Your best bet is to just use iTunes to rip your CD's into AAC directly.

    Transcoding between lossy algorithms always results in a reduction of quality that is quite noticable. Avoid it.
