    MP3 in Finder, but AAC in Itunes
    I have some files that Finder says are mp3 files, and I can listen to them in the preview from the Finder. But when I try to import them to ITunes, it tells me they are AAC files --- and they won't play. Does anyone know why this happens? Why can I listen to it in the Finder and not Itunes?
    (Maybe this is basic and I am an idiot.)

    They are probably named wrong -- to be sure, you could open them with VLC and then "get info" and it will tell you what codec it uses. They might also be DRM'd.
    There is no system but GNU and Linux is one of its kernels.
