I ripped my CD collection with EAC to FLAC. Now I'd like to convert the FLAC to mp3 and put it on my android phone. I'll be using PowerAmp to play it on my phone.

Currently I have my folders named and organized as such... Artist/Artist - Album - (date)/01 - songname.flac

With EAC an m3u file was put in the album folder, as well as a text file for EAC. I have copied to each album a "cover.jpg" as the album art
I have CUE files for the rips but they were automatically left out of the Artist/Album folders by EAC

Now I'm not too familiar with m3u's and CUE's and not really sure what use they have exactly.

I just want to convert my FLAC collection to MP3 to play on my android phone (Galaxy S3) using PowerAmp.

How should I convert the FLAC to MP3 (or should I use WMA?) ?

What tags are needed...CUE's, m3u's, etc.?

And how should I name and organize my folders and albums etc.?

Or any other suggestion you might give me here.
Thanks!

OK, I've got the latest foobar2000 installed, version 1.2.
foobar2000 1.2.1 just released; go back and update.

But I've got to ask, why ACC over MP3?
Personal preference. This is a question you'll need to answer for yourself. You can start by reading results of various listening tests on this forum. No substitute for trying a few listening tests yourself, however. If you're comfortable with MP3, then go with it (and foobar2000 setup is easier). Get the latest LAME build from Rarewares. Your 60GB of FLAC will compress to about 1/3 that size using LAME -V2 or even smaller using -V4; both of which will be transparent on practically anything you play. (If you ever change your mind, or a new/better codec comes along, you still have your original lossless files, right?)

And I'm a bit hesitant to download from that page you link. What is that?
Is that download at http://www.rarewares.org/index.php ?
It's a link to the QAAC encoder zip download on its Googlecode page; it's not on Rarewares, but alternative AAC encoders are there.
You can also use the Nero AAC encoder -> http://www.nero.com/enu/company/about-nero...o-aac-codec.php
