Chapter 2. iTunes > Rip music files to other formats

Rip music files to other formats

When you import music from a CD, you may want to encode the music files to some other file format. You can change the Importing preferences so that imported files are encoded as AAC, AIFF, Apple Lossless, MP3, or WAV formats.

1.
From the iTunes menu, choose “Preferences…,” then click the “Importing” button.

2.
Change the “Import Using” setting to one of the supported file formats in the pop-up menu.

3.
In the CD Song list, put a checkmark next to the song (or songs) you want to encode. If you plan to encode just a few songs, you can Command-click on an existing checkmark to clear all checkmarks, then select (checkmark) just the songs you want.

4.
Click the “Import” button (shown on the previous page).
