Is there any way to remedy this? Some of my files are mp3s, some are mpeg-4, and some are huge .wav files.

Lila, do you have iTunes? You can convert those odd files to MP3s.

in iTunes, you can right click to "convert selection to mp3" on most tracks, especially the .wavs.

I see, in my old version of iTunes, that it can convert to WAV, but where does it give the option to convert to mp3?

<<<off to shower, bbl! (and thanks!)

which version of iTunes do you have?

If it's out of date, I really suggest going to the Apple site and downloading the newest version (7.3.1).

Is there an option where you can make mp3 the default file to use when converting? I would guess that's the issue. I think if you change the default, when you right click, it'll let you convert to MP3.

Preferences -> Advanced tab -> Importing tab -> Import Using: MP3 Encoder?

Thanks guys! I went to the preferences section and changed the defaulted 'convert to wav' to 'mp3'. I think that worked!

NOW I'm off to the shower

No prob

Shower sounds like a good idea, too.

Shower -> watch The Thing -> Dinner -> watch Enter the Dragon -> Pack for Milwaukee.

I had some files that were mp3s, some that were m4ps, and some that I'd bought from iTunes, so I burned my whole playlist onto two CDs, then re-ripped it so that all the files were mp3s.

I'm looking forward to hearing everybody's playlists. I don't have a lot going on this weekend, so I'll probably try to listen to as many of them as possible then.

Okay, so some of the entries sent in already had sendspace links. For a list of reasons that should be obvious I've being trying to upload those links into Mediafire (the one hopefully everyone is uploading to.) Mediafire and my computer are slow today so it is taking forever. So I can do one of two things. I could wait and send out all of the links sometime late tommorrow or I could send out the links I have in Mediafire now (this would mean two of the entries I have would not be sent out until the deadline.)

Which would people prefer?

I think you should disqualify them for using the wrong file-sharing service.

If it was one person that would be okay but there were three! That's a third of the entries I recieved.

Anyways, the links will go out in a couple minutes.

What's wrong with send space? I didn't know you guys preferred media fire that much! I thought it was just a suggestion and that people could use any of those websites.
