    Is AAC a realplayer format? Not really sure, I'm guessing you'd need some proffessional audio software and it would come out sounding like crap anyway.

    i'm baffled because i uploaded the cd into itunes which automaticly copies it to mp3 or m4a format.. i've ripped tons of cd's and never had this problem..

    i copied this from the real player help section

    AAC Audio
    Secure AAC

    .m4a
    .m4p

    96 - 320 Kbps Stereo

    AAC encoded MPEG-4 audio. Compatible with iTunes and the iPod


    real player format is .ra with 32 - 320 Kbps Stereo

    this is aggrivating the shit out of me because this one album is the one i REALLY wanted on my ipod above all others..

    I don't understand the problem. If .m4a is compatible with the I-Pod, why do you need to convert it?

    And if you do need to convert it, you'll need to use an audio program. You can d/l Adobe Audition of their site and it has a free 30 day trial.

    In Itunes...right click on the song..

    click get info...go to summary tab

    Kind should say AAC audio file if not you can convert the song by right clicking on it and convert to AAC.

    The song could also be incomplete from a download

    i love itunes but unfortunately my ipod was formatted for a mac, and i'm using a PC at the moment.. i was trying to figure out a way to get my new music onto my ipod WITHOUT reformatting the ipod, thus losing the music i already have....

    Make it so you can see invisible files and have a root around on your ipod, never know what might turn up.
    might get a nice root to plonk files in.
    Not wholeheartedly suggested tho.
    Oh and try www.ipodlounge.com . Good luck.

    that seems too complicated for me.. i'm hardly computer savvy. i can see the album name and the tracks on my ipod, but when i press play it just goes through all the songs without playing them.
