    I've got quite a few FLAC audio files that I'd like to convert to .m4a so I can play them on my iPad.

    Is there an easy (preferably free) way to do this? Surely there must be a free (or very cheap) program that can do this. I've tried searching, but nothing comes up that inspires confidence.

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, not sure about a 'free' program but agree I'm sure that there may be one out there?

    I have the program HERE - was not free ($20 I believe) but can do a myriad of conversions - personally, I've used it to get FLAC to MP3 and also M4a (from the iTunes store) to MP3, so I could 'burn' CD-Rs to play on my other machines.

    Good luck in your search - :)

    Thanks for your help - I bought the M4a converter recommended, and it works a treat! Incidentally you can get it for free if you don't mind being bombarded wtih ads - I do! I'll take $20 over no ads any time :)

    Thanks for all your help.
