"My buddy gave me some CDs full of music he's recorded. I've ripped most of the CDs to FLAC. Now, it seems so difficult to do a conversion to MP3. I'm really psyched to add the music to my iPod, but all the music are in a format "FLAC" that my iPod can't seem to understand.

Really don't want to re-rip everything to MP3."
