I'm using iTunes 10 64-bit on Windows 7.

I have my CD collection ripped to ALAC for archival (properly tagged, album art embedded). I then use iTunes to generate 190kbps MP3s for the iPod from the MP4 source files.

I'm noting that if I setup iTunes to do a batch convert, it is writing malformed ID3 tags to some of the resulting MP3s. iTunes won't display the tag data and MP3Tag reports bad id3 tags. If I then go back and re-convert that album, it seems to be OK. So I don't know if the amount of albums is problematic for iTunes or what. I didn't seem to have this issue in previous versions.

Also, when you convert ID3 tags in iTunes (say from 2.2 to 2.3), iTunes loses the embedded album art. VERY frustrating.

Windows 7, iTunes 10 for Windows 64-bit
