I was configuring iTunes settings for when I import music from cd's and one of the options is which encoder to use...

I assume I want to use the mp3 encoder that way I will be able to burn mp3 cd's...

The default is AAC encoder... could someone please explain to me the differences between these two file formats / encoders?


My first apple product is this White 2.4 Mac Book I bought on September 25, 2008!

I don't know much off hand but a quick google search came back with some results.
