Most all of my music is ripped as Apple Lossless for archival purposes. But then due to iPod space, I re-rip as MP3.
I dearly want to sometimes make copies/backups of only the MP3 part. Of course, I could go into every single sub-folder and select only the MP3s, but that would be super tedious. (Please don't just say get a bigger backup drive and back up everything; one application is to SD or flash for playback in a car, and to a Rhapsody player in future, and from my Mac to a small-HD used Windows laptop I have).
What I really want to do is somehow copy all the relevant folders (say "White Stripes" or "iTunes Music" but have only the MP3s actually copy. I'm imagining via drag-and-drop, but could be some other way.
Or, somehow "burning" (actually exporting) my MP3 smart playlist...
