Apple’s Lossless Codec

While tidying up my shelves, I discovered a few old CDs of ‘audiophile’ quality and decided to rip them in iTunes, using the Apple Lossless Encoder.

However, iTunes was unable to update any of those files!

Looks like my Flim and the BB's collections have to wait.

Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? For starters, I am not short of space, and every CD I ripped was legitimately acquired. I am on a PC using Windows 2000 and so for have not experienced any other synchronisation problems.

After doing a quick search on Google, it appears that other people have encountered the same problem:

My 2nd generation iPod, around 18 months old, cannot play Apple’s new Lossless encoded music … I want to know why this is happening. If Apple can allow me to upgrade the firmware on my iPod so it can play their “better” AAC files, why can’t they do the same for the Lossless Codec?

[Update: I just learnt that you need to update iPod’s firmware to play it. Hope this works…]
