from my old windows computer I have around 20G of music in flac format. Now, I got a mac and I would like to add this music to itunes, so I need to convert them to mp3 format.

So, what is the best way to convert a so big music library to mp3?

The most practical thing to do is not convert it.

A little confused if this was part of the op's question but, would it be possible to play the .flac files on an iPod? – Javed Ahamed Jul 13 '10 at 7:50
Those will not play on an iPod, they would need to be converted to AAC or MP3 first. – James Snyder Jul 13 '10 at 14:04
If you don't need to play them on other devices, also check out flukeformac: – James Snyder Jul 13 '10 at 14:05

You could convert them to Apple lossless. Or use xIph as Ignacio suggests. I got this link from google: Convert to Apple lossless
