Is there a quick way of doing this?, I have Media Monkey if that helps, I want to mass convert my library to MP3 for a USB stick in the car.

 

Thanks

Thanks for that, I didn't know that function existed. excellent!

I would just like to add that if on Mac OSX, there is a program called XLD, a free audio conversion tool. Very useful and effective.

OK, so I exported the library and have nearly finished converting it all, but I have just noticed that the original library now appears to be populated with playlists I was using 6 months ago and my recent ones have gone. 

 

My 1st thought was that I had copied an earlier library across but even the copy contains songs purchased last week and why would exporting it change the playlist content anyway??
