    I just bought my first iPod and am frustrated. I am trying to import my cd's and no matter what I use, a brand new, never before virgin cd or an older cd, iTunes immediately gives me this error message:
    Error occurred while converting the file "name of song here". An unknown error occurred 0x77686174.

    I have tried cleaning the cd, under preferences for importing it is AAC--their default--which I want so that I can get as many songs as possible on the iPod, and I have clicked to check the error correction choice.

    I have a Dell Dimension E510 that is almost a year old with Windows XP. The iTunes that I have is the newest version.

    Does anyone have any idea what I can do? I've gone to the Apple website and have left messages there but have received no replies. Any help you can give me is greatly appreciated...thanks!

    Hi there, I had the same problem using iTunes to get music from my CDs onto my iPod - tried everything (ripping music using windows media player and others and attempting to convert to aac, etc). Eventually I changed it to convert to mp3 through iTunes and this worked perfectly - under Edit > Preferences > Advanced > Importing change the 'Import Using' field to "MP3 Encoder". The MP3 files are pretty much the same size as aac and import really quickly. One word of warning though - make sure that the iTunes window is open and displayed while it is importing and do not click away from it or attempt to do anything else!! It crashes on my Dell every time I click away from the iTunes window during an import.
