    For my birthday I recieved a music kit that allows me to sync music, photos, videos, etc. onto my cell phone. In order to sync the data from the computer to the cell phone, it uses Windows Media Player 10. Problem is this: up until now I've been using iTunes to handle my music collection. WMP doesn't play mpeg-4 files by default and I can't find a plug-in that will help. Does anyone know of a way that I can (1)Import my mpeg-4 files into WMP, and (2)with the music files that DID work with WMP, is there an easier way to manage them using my existing iTunes song details/playlists?

    As for the first problem, (1), I know that WMP won't import mpeg-4 files into its library. Is there something I can do so that it will? If not, I'm assuming I would have to find a file converter and convert all of my mpeg-4's into .mp3's...but I'd rather not do that seeing as then I'd have two of every song on my computer (different file formats) and I'd lose sound quality. Does anyone know of any options I have here?

    Second problem, (2), is more of a convenience thing. I have close to 1000 songs (I know that's a little on the low end for most music lovers) and I have them all nicely organized in iTunes with playlists and details, etc. When I look at them in WMP, all of my playlists are gone and there isn't much in the way of organization. Is there an easier way to transfer over my playlists from iTunes to WMP without having to manually select each song and placing it in its correct playlist?

    HUGE thanks in advance for any help I can get.
