I used to use a little shareware program called cd to .aiff converter on my 9600. It worked great. However, it refuses to run on my new, ever so advanced, G3 which has an IDE CD drive. Any info on a ware that would work on this machine would be helpful. Also, I need a utility for converting MP3s to .aiff files.

  For the CD audio to .AIFF xfer, try SoundEdit16 ( commercial).  There's a dedicated CD audio conversion routine in the software, plus the program speaks IMA, uLaw, and other compression syles.  For other conversions, there's Sound App ( shareware ), which does .WAV, .AIFF, .SND, and others. Good Luck. . .

Thanks, I'll try Sound App. I have SoundEdit but for some reason the files don't like to play once burned back to cd. I'm not sure why, but several different attempt yeilded the same result: a brand new shiny drink coaster.
