    Take note of the bolded portion before you decide to update. I'm gonna wait awhile myself to see if that one is true.

    EDIT: I went ahead and updated my iTunes to 9.1 and I'm all good with syncing. Mac setup.

    none of my devices aren't jailbroken so no worries for me. will download later and hope that my freezing during syncing issues will be fixed.

    in my opinion, there is no significant difference between the 128kbps to the higher bit rate when you are listening on stock apple earphones unless you're an audiophile listening to high-end sound systems you can tell/hear the difference between 128kbps and 192kbps or higher

    That is why I went oem with my iPod Touch. I just want to be able to update iTunes or OS X without anxieties. I have piece of mind should I need to restore my iPod Touch.

    I was able to recover around 1.8GB of space on my iPhone because of the new convert to AAC feature. Sweet. :)

    No issues with synching my j*!lbkn iPhone 3G. I think the issue only happens with iTunes on Windoze.

    when the option "convert higher bit rate songs to 128 kpbs aac" is selected, the 128 kbps aac versions of the files are not stored anywhere on the computer. it will save only on your devices (ipod, iphone and ipad)

    I tried the "Covert higher bit rate songs to 128 kbps AAC" but the conversion was taking so look that phone calls kept interrupting it. Because of the interruption, it starts all over again from the beginning--every single time the iPhone rings (and even if you don't pick up to answer the call). After several attempts overnight, ending unsuccessfully with some sort of an error, I finally gave up on the attempt. I unchecked the "Convert" option and re-synced. I might attempt this again on my 854-song collection on my iPhone over the weekend, this time making sure to disable the phone function so it can proceed uninterrupted.

    YOu can convert in iTunes instead. You may have to delete the old files.
