How to automate conversion from m4a to mp3 [more inside]
I am looking for a way to organize my music in a way that Google Music (both the online player and on Android) will understand - I need to move files into different folders and fix all of my messed up mp3 tags. I need help determining my process. Do I do it manually with a good piece of software, and how? Or should I just post it to Mechanical Turk? [more inside]
I've got a ton of MP3's, I've finally got (most) of them tagged correctly, but now I need to weed out the dupes. Some albums I have fully duplicated, some albums only one or two songs, but I've got lots of duplicates and I need a good way to get rid of them. I'm on Windows, and would really not like to install iTunes if I don't have to. Help!
I think I bought a song off the iTunes Music Store that has a watermark on it. [more inside]

I have multiple Ubuntu PCs in multiple rooms, each connected to individual HiFis. I want to be able to listen to my 150GB music collection from any of the PCs. BUT, I want to have a unified record of playcount, so, from each PC, I can access a "Not Recently Played" smart playlist that has been updated from all PCs. I'd also like to sync this Not Recenlty Played playlist with my Android phone. How can I do this? [more inside]
Please help me create a pre-recorded conference presentation and reliable delivery and display method. Thanks!

With the recent announcement that Microsoft will no longer be making Zune players, can anyone recommend a Windows based personal media player with an internal memory of AT LEAST 30GB that supports audio (mp3, FLAC, wma), video (wmv, mp4) and podcast subscriptions? Recommendations for a new media player/software to manage all that stuff would be helpful as well. (I'm just going to cut the Zune cord entirely when my current player finally gives out). Please note, I do not want an iPod or iTunes.
How to convert Audible files to mp3 using open source or free software? [more inside]
Is there an archive of old firmware for iPods? I have a 30GB 5th gen iPod - songs often skip, the device freezes, and audible excessive spinning is causing major battery drain. Reset and restore are useless, and I am thinking it is maybe a quirk of the latest firmware. [more inside]

I need help un-disorted a sound clip. There is a sound in Civilization 4 that plays whenever you discover Judaism. I could not place it--and I know my Jewish prayers--so I dug in the install folder and found the full file. It is heavily distorted in a way I cannot quite figure out. Could someone help me see if this was ever a prayer to begin with, or was just random vocalizations approved as being "Jewish enough" in order to avoid offending people with actual prayers?

I found and immediately lost a link the other day that talked about a device that made mp3s sound richer, deeper, perhaps like vinyl (or at least not as compressed as they truly are). It was a rather simple device and the article talked about one brand as low as $150. I don't expect anyone to find the exact page especially as I am not being too descriptive. It was on an audiophile site and was recommended...not one of those 'buy this cheapie/crap product that screws up your music' sort of thing. If anyone knows what I am talking about or has something else that they know that works for improving mp3 sound through stereo, I'm interested. Pardon me for the nebulous post. It is the best my brain can recall. Thanks for your techie/audiophile input.
