Not 100% sure, but i think winamp will "see" your N95, you might have to search winamp options to "find" it
Think it also copies and converts the mp3's

Try and google it and you will probably find more info

thanks man

Found some free software called mediacoder

its really good, and can convert the files to AAC+ mp4 files
they sound the same quality, but are the quarter of the size on the default settings of the app

perfect!

loads of stuff mate
The UI is not very intuitive

but the main issue was it cant seem to handle albums of various artists
i converted a album, and it put each songl in seperate folders

that tool i recommended is far easier to use and does a great job of batching, files, folders, and folders recursively

Another vote for mediacoder here, much more intuitive and it can handle lots of different codecs and settings.

loopyludo,
Out of interest, what settings do you use?

I just change the encoder to CT AAC+ and leave it at that
do you do anything different?
can the n95 support anything more optimized?

their is an option for 3gpp aac+, not sure what the difference is

I use the Nero Encoder with the HE-AAC V2 profile, target bitrate mode of 48kbps you might find this a bit low and want to crank it up a little bit (trial and error). For me personally though I find this is an acceptable quality for the fantastic compression.

Winamp will let you encode to HE-AAC. The free version is limited to encoding at a maximum of 128kbs, which is better than the MP3 at > 256kbs.
The pro version (10) will remove this cap.

Hi all

Well in iTunes i have all my Music converted to 256kbps AAC which gives great quality and the just drag and dropped the Albums to the N95/N95 8GB. Then I just copied the Album Art to the Gallery and use the option in the Music Player to attach it from there there. After which you can safely delete it from the Gallery and even create playlists and the Album Art will still show for the individual tracks.

at 160-192 kb/s get the perfect trasparent quality in aac-lc(with headphone maybe also at 128 you will not hear differences with original sound) ..don't use 256,it's not necessary for aac (high bitrates are used for multichannel)
