I talked to an Apple Support tech about converting files directly to a playlist or folder without going into the Ipod Library. They said I could. Unfortunely my 90 day complimentary Support had run out. So I'm summitting my question to the forum. I want to add my files into a playlist, convert them in the same playlist. I want to do this so I don't have to look thru 4000 files in my iTunes Library. I have an attachmement enclosed.  Thanks!I Tunes Screen Capture.jpg

    I'll be curious to see if someone replies with an easy method to do this. Because as you know, iTunes puts the converted files in the main Library.


    You could search thru Doug's Applescripts for a solution


    Or with an extra step on your part you could create a Smart Playlist. For the songs you want to convert, Get Info and add a comment like "convert to mp3.  Then create a Smart Playlist to look something like this.  Of course this is not as simple a solution as you're looking for, but might be a temporary solution.
