Some audiophile types love FLAC files, but I can’t really tell the difference between a flac file and an mp3. All my digital music collection is in mp3 format (I convert all the iTunes stuff I buy from m4a to mp3 as soon as i get it). You can convert flac to mp3 using WinAmp Pro (but that’s not free). This method is completely free and preserves any tags (artist name, track name album name etc) information.

Program you need

1. Download and install Foobar2000, select typical install and accept all the defaults.

3. Create a new folder in C:Program Files called Lame, and paste in all the files you copied above. Note: You don’t need to install anything, the files just need to be there.
