    Thanks, otto! So this only allows me to play FLAC files through iTunes, and not have them on my iPod right?

    Not sure to be honest! Won't it let you convert FLAC to AAC in iTunes and then sync it to your iPod?

    Hmm. The torrent's finished, but I can't drag-and-drop them into iTunes or even open them. I downloaded the codec earlier on, and also that program you linked otto.

    XiphQT doesn't support native FLAC, unfortunately.

    You can use VLC / mplayer / any other application to convert FLAC to something more suitable.

    Edit: You figured out the problem? How?

    :o I was having the same problem as you deathgibbon, how did you overcome it?

    I just opened the FLAC Frontend, put in all the files and decoded them. It converted them to WAV files, which I dragged and dropped into iTunes no bother. Got it on my iPod now too.

    Ultra-old bumpage here, but I couldn't find another thread for this.

    Can iTunes convert .flac files yet? I can't find an option so I'd assume it's a no, but I'm a bit... special, sometimes.

    If not, what is the best program to use now?

    I just use Flacer, it's free. Convert to wav or aiff and then import to iTunes.

    Media Human's Audio Converter is a free alternative that can handle FLAC files amongst others:
