    Hello,

    I have been listening to the IGN Game Scoop for a few weeks now and have had no problem. But yesterday I tried to get the most recent one and it downloaded as an AAC audio instead of an mp3. My mp3 player is not an iPd, it is just a cheap one from eBay, so it can't play AAC files.

    Why would they change from mp3 that everyone can listen to, to AAC for iPod owners? This seems stupid.

    I use Juice - Podcast Receiver 2.2 and I have downloaded numerous other podcasts since then and they are all the normal mp3s so I'm sure I haven't changed something in the options menu.

    I guess what I'm asking is, is there any free program that will convert it from an AAC to a mp3? I have looked at many free trial programs but I am pretty sure that they have a track time limit - IGN podcasts are over an hour long!

    OK I'll get off my soapbox now.

    AAC can easily be converted to an MP3. Afaik, iTunes plays both AAC and MP3.

    Download a program called dBpoweramp Music Converter from here

    I have included the Lame MP3 Codec, in case it is needed. Can't remember if dBpoweramp comes with it.

    If you have any questions, PM me.
