I'm planning on getting a Windows Phone 8 mobile when they are released and of course they do not support Apple Lossless. I've decided to just convert my whole music library to WMA Lossless so that it will all work but I'm having trouble finding a way to convert my files.

If it requires converting to FLAC or some other lossless format first and then converting that to WMA Lossless that would be OK as I have a pretty fast computer but I'm stumped. If anyone has any advice I would appreciate it smile.gif.

But why do you need lossless on a phone?


Because in the long run it saves on maintenance and hard drive space. There are three options available:

* Maintain a lossless and non-lossless library one for normal listening and one for phone listening.
* Convert everything to non-lossless.
* Just maintain a lossless library

out of the options available the third seems the best to me since my music library is predominantly all lossless anyway.
