    Does any one Dl'd much lossless music in Flac (Front Loaded Audio Compression ) or Shn ( Shorten ) format ? I'm looking for a decent program to convert these files which I have archived on DVD Audio to MP3 or lossy.
    I plan on keeping my my archived files in lossless format , however mp3 is a much smaller file & I can fit a lot more on my portable MP3 player that I've hooked up to my stereo via an RCA plug. I can do a Google search but I'm asking because I'm looking for reviews , more than I'm looking for different models. I guess feedback from someone currently using a lossless to lossy program is much more valuable than an advertisement.


    Thanks in advance..
    Peace & Carrots,

    My 2 cents:

    I use Nero Wave Editor from Nero6. You can add 3rd party codecs such as Mau Sau's and just put'em in the codec folder. It's never failed me yet. (Never heard of shn format though).

    This is also what I use for converting. It's fast and easy. But the link I posted will give you info on how to play them as well as conversion info for Mac.
