AAC to Mp3 conversion problem?

Hi, don't know if this has ever been asked before. I have had an Ipod video for almost a year now and haven't really had any problems with it. An occasional freezing here and there, all solved by resetting.

However, this past weekend, I decided to convert all of my files that were not already MP3 format (I have other mp3 players that do not support AAC) through Itunes. Since Monday, it has frozen on me twice already. I have searched the internet high and low and cannot get an answer to my question-

did switching the format do something to the files, which in turn is messing up my hard drive on the Ipod?

I ran MP3 shield on my files and two songs came up that were corrupted, both have which been on several different Ipods and never caused a problem, but then again they have always been in AAC format. I'm about to freak because I don't want to have to clear out the files and go and reinstall every single song onto Itunes again. It wouldn't be such a big deal if 50 or more of my CDs tracks were actually read, but instead I have to go through and type out the information for each song. In short, could this freezing just be due to the file conversion or just a completely separate problem with the hard drive? Or nothing to even be concerned about?

Also I have tried running a disk scan on it and every site I have been to says there are four different tests:
But when I run the test I only see HDSpecs and HDSMART Data, so I can't even try to do that. Well, thank you so much to anyone who answers.

Re: AAC to Mp3 conversion problem?

My Dear Friend,
I too am an Apple 30 GB Ipod video user . I haven't faced such a trouble yet .Why don't you copy the songs from your ipod to a local or external drive via my computer(assuming you're a MS user too) . Then make the folder in which you copied your songs as the default song storage folder of your iTunes after clearing it of all the previous content .Then sync your ipod which cleans it for once . I can't guarantee it to work but there's no harm in trying out . This way you won't lose any information you entered about the songs . If the problem still persists try the toll free number and consult the expert (you might have to hold on for very long , but it's worth it if they can help you) . But first try the trick above . If it works you're in luck and have saved time .

2 problems: recorded music breaking up/how to delete one track?

Hi! Some tracks are breaking up because they are not in mp3 or aac format(Only audio formats supported by ipod). While some tracks are converted by itunes others can't so, downloading a wma to mp3 or aac converter will surely help. You have to first change the format of the songs(from CD) by converting them into mp3 (or aac) format. Then sync these songs into ipod. Deleting any track from itunes library will automatically delete that track from the ipod. You can download that converter from the link-
