See that's the conspiracy.
Apple were kinda hoping that you would then buy their mp3's, even for music you already own. It takes time, but when
done right, you will only have to do it once. As an experiment, try encoding files at different rates/qualities to see if you or your daughter (?)
can hear a difference and if it is "fun" to listen to. I can tell low quality (often internet quality) mp3 files from a mile off but then I have good
earbuds. Cymbals sound like they are playing in water, if that makes sense. Wishy-washy, no depth, no width (stereo) and no discernible bass are often
signs of low quality files. You may need good phones/buds to hear that though. Standard Apple earphones as supplied with their players are total junk,
about 5 bucks worth if that. I went to Sennheiser, they cost me 30 or 35 I think but are worth it for serious listening.

ETA You do not have to delete the CD's!
You are allowed to have multiple copies (here anyway) as long as you only listen to one or the other at
any given time. I doubt a SWAT team will kick your door down for making MP3's but...the way things are going it might be on the cards in the near
