    u need audio wares for the mac to make the files AIFF. Or if u have itunes. Preferences>sharing/storing>>custom import>>choose AIFF from the drop down menu

    you could also just change the file extensions i think

    just change the actual title of the file .mp3 to .aiff

    i easily converted the files, but just not sure if I connect the iomga drive to PC via a scsi converter cable or similar , that the PC will "See" it cos it will have to be a Mac formatted zip drive to work on Sampler..agh..u know if nobody knows I will get asampler for 40 quid on ebay hopefully this time not fucked audio inputs..agh
    But thanks for all teh help etc ..adn know what Gordo is sayin about holy water etc ..fukin macs..like teh beta max of computers..but undead
