It's a personal preference rather than a requirement. My entire library is MP3 with only a few iTunes purchased exceptions.Originally Posted by Seadog
Unless storage space is an absolute premium on your iPad and you want to store lots of music on there, there is little reason to go through the conversion process to AAC.
Hope that helps clarify.

Jerry...when you first setup iPad and sync with iTunes, iTunes will search for your mp3 music files and install them In iTunes. Files are then synced to your iPad and accessed thru the iPod icon. Hope this helps.
Another way to transfer mp3 tracks - it's the way I use - is by GoodReader. You can transfer them directly via USB or WiFi. If they're in a folder on your PC, GoodReader can transfer them all at once.
Thanks guys. All these suggestions are very helpfu
