Are you using musicmusic's foobar ipod component (foo_dop), or are you using iTunes with a newer iPod?

assuming you just want the conversion done with foobar (i know nothing about transferring to ipods), just down refalac and create your own custom encoder. i found an old post here...

Since you are posting in the foobar2000 forum, you are probably on Windows and already have some good advice above. However, if you are using a Mac to manage your iPod, you could invest $4 in FLACTunes, an app for iTunes running on recent versions of OS X that automagically converts dropped FLAC files into ALAC -- all tags and images intact -- and puts them in your iTunes library.
