My iPod Mini's warranty just ran out. I have already had to replace it three times, so I know it will probably fail again soon. If this is the case, I will need a new MP3 player. I would consider the iPod Video, but I know I would end up having to buy the warranty, so I would end up paying $400. I have been looking at a Creative Labs player, but I have one problem keeping me from switching.

All of my music is encoded in the AAC format. For most of my music, I could just rip the CD again in the MP3 format if I swithced. But with the songs I bought from iTunes, I would need to convert them to MP3. I know there will be some quality loss if I change from a lossful compression format to another, but it would be a much better deal than an iPod Video. Can anyone recommend a good conversion programming, preferably a free one?

Wow, I didn't recognize the obvious it looks like. That should do the job.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
