Been trying all evening to find something that can convert my entire collection of MP3 and WMA audio to AAC and keep the embedded album art, so far nothing has worked.

I would prefer something based of Nero's AAC encoder, as I hear it's the best.

can someone suggest a solution? For a format that's trying to be the next MP3, I figured an easy way to migrate would be a must!

If you're running Windows (?), it can read non-DRM'd WMA files, as well.

Regarding Nero being the "best" AAC encoder, Apple's latest encoder beat Nero in the recent 64 kbps listening test here on HA. I participated in that test, and can personally attest that the QuickTime encoder did a very good job overall (although the new open-source CELT/Opus codec did even better, at least at that bitrate).

Whether or not that translates to higher bitrates isn't a given (I use LAME -V2 for all my CD rips, so I can't say), but it would seem to be a good indicator.
