You can upgrade your itunes library to 256 bit

You can upgrade your itunes library to 256 bit loss less
(for the tunes you bought from apple its an option at the itunes store)
I burn 320 bit mp3 cd's from the stuff I have in the itunes library
and the same files will go on a USB stick so I see no problem with
playing them .
If you made a low bit rate library from cd's you will have to redo it.

In itunes you have to create and mp3 version first

In itunes you have to create and mp3 version first.(to burn cd's)
Unfortunately this leaves you with two copy's of the file a original
version and the new mp3 version.
You have to specify the kind of bit rate you want your new mp3 file
created at.
Then you can make playlists that contain only mp3 files .
Making mp3 file playlists is only necessary for making cd's as the
apple program won't burn anything but mp3's to a cd that I am aware of.
Also the last update of itunes to itunes 11 sucks so avoid it if you can.
It blows up all your playlists and the interface is for idiots.
its very non intuitive.

I found a nice little utility for burning play lists from itunes to a usb drive
http://www.ericdaugherty.com/dev/itunesexport/
contribute if you find it useful.
No need to change the format with the above utility unless
you want to .

You can still get back to itunes 10.7

You can still get back to itunes 10.7 if you have backups.
I deleted itunes 11 and reinstalled 10.7 but I had the thing
set up on two computers and one of them was not updated.
So it still took me three hours to copy the music from one to the
other .

That utility will work on all forms of itunes though.
