    Hi,

    I use Musicmatch Jukebox 7.2 Plus for converting the songs.

    I wanna ask whether is there any diference between a mp3pro format (64kps) and a Mp3 format (128kps).

    Is it better for me to convert all my songs into MP3 pro???

    uses about half the space as a normal mp3, the quality I can't hear any difference and I got a nice sound set up.

    MP3Pro is different than MP3. With pro, you get the quality of a 128 mp3 in half the space (64). I wouldn't personally go the pro route since it is a liscensable technology. Therefore, many hardware players do not and will not support it. If you're worried about space, I'd suggest the ogg vorbis format which is higher quality than mp3 at a smaller bitrate. Also there is already some hardware support and more will follow.

    One other suggestion I would like to make, instead of using music match to rip and encode, use Exact Audio Copy and the Lame.
