One of the things I teach to users of FCP is that it is always best to work with media in the same format as you are editing in; in the case of audio, this is most often AIFF 16-bit 48KHz. Apple has kindly posted an easy-to-follow how-to guide on performing this task. I recommend book-marking this page and printing off the instructions when needed.

Hey! What do you know? There's something that I've been doing right.

Thanks Duane. The "option key" option in number 8 was new to me.

Thanks for that article Duane. I've always used Final Cut Pro to convert CD or MP3 audio files to AIFFs using the Batch Export feature. I always felt that there ought to be an easier way... for some reason it never struck me to simply use Quicktime Pro   Much faster!

Yes def. important.

For the company I work for, last week, I had to edit 24 radio spots (cut off the verbal slates), then convert the AIFF to mp3's within an hour. Looked up some tut's online and iTunes (after TRYING 6 different converter programs) worked the best.
