    ^^^ exactly what I was about to post.

    Transcode to Apple Lossless.

    There is a new FLAC player app for newer iPod Touch and iPhone. It works fine.
    Don't know about the Windows interface.

    I believe foobar 2000 will do the conversion as long as the codecs are installed on your machine.
    You will need the apple lossless codec that allows writing.

    Dude, you've been supplied with at least 3 suggestions that will get music from FLAC to your iPod. All can use AAC. :bonk

    Yes and your suggestion was to convert them to mp3, when the whole point of my post is to find a way to get my ipod to play flac files.

    I already have the songs as mp3s. I have them as flac too, which are obviously a much higher quality audio.

    I am, as I type, trying to work out foobar, but I need plug ins etc, and it's a bit tricky.

    I have managed to convert them to wav files and they're working great.

    So why the:bonk

    A big thanks to everyone for all your suggestions.
