I have an album of files that were given to me as m4a, which is a format my PMP won't play. They play fine in foobar2000, so there's no problem with the files themselves. foobar tells me they're AAC LC encoded, at 44.1 KHz and 130 Kbps.

Barring being able to get originals of the files in another format, I'll need to convert them. I realise that lossy formats will be degraded to some degree by conversion, but I'd like to minimise that if possible - except I don't know a great deal about formats and the consequences of different choices.

Would converting them to a lossless format like FLAC or APE (both of which my PMP can handle) limit the damage of transcoding? I'd appreciate any advice on the least damaging options to use.
