    It is great to know that even sound files can be converted. Previously i used to think only video files can be converted. I have many of mp4 format songs which are not played in my ipod. So this information will be very useful for me.. Thanks a lot

    I had issues by using other guides and ended up with 0 byte MP3 files, but yours worked out perfectly for me and I finally could convert all of my files. I had the same problem with my MP3 player not able to play MP4s.

    Oh, and I used the last toolbox icon ‘Create a new profile’, named it ‘New Profile’ and saved the settings from in the tutorial, so I always have it to select in the ‘Profile’ menu.

    Thank you very much for sharing. 🙂
