Default Converting mp3 question.

If all my music is mp3 format, is it worth it up convert them to a higher quality format? Will it make any difference? I have a 4gb D2 and about 1.5gb worth of music, and I'd like to convert it to the best quality I can.

You music is already in a lossy format and reconverting them will only make them sound worse. Rip from either CD's or lossless files to get the best quality - never reconvert a mp3 if possible (non-music files are acceptable to convert as your not really listening to them for the same reasons). Also, it's not possible to take an mp3 file thats 128kbps and up-convert it to 192kbps, it looses sound quality - not GAINS it.
