So (please correct me if I'm being too simple), should we use Feb version for classical music and Aug version for other music styles?
Isn't it possible to let Nero AAC generate files with exactly the same file header structure as iTunes does?
I believe an updated version of Nero's AAC encoder will be coming out over the next couple of months and it should fix all these Xbox 360 and Creative Zen issues. So I think they solved their issues on that front. I am not sure what they did though. I don't know if it was the actual encoder or just the header information. Either way the problem is solved.
kornchild2002 gave the answer
Is there any way to use the encoder in 22.214.171.124 via command line, so I can use it in Foobar2000?
Thanks guys. At least I could buy a Zen now (if money is sufficient) and enjoy Nero AAC in the near future.

Until then, should we use version 126.96.36.199 instead of 188.8.131.52 + OptimizeMP4?Thanks.I came across this post while researching the same problem. I just bought two 2nd Generation iPod Shuffles and found that AAC files created with Nero AAC Encoder 184.108.40.206 would not play on them. I tried the Optimize feature of Foobar2000 - no luck. Same thing with a similar feature in Mp3Tag.After more searching I found this troubleshooting page for the Roku Soundbridge network music player: http://www.rokulabs.com/support_sb_ts_playback.phpIn the item about AAC files locking up it references a command line utility that is part of the mpeg4-ip utilities available at RareWares.org. http://www.rarewares.org/files/mp4/mpeg4ip...s-1.4.15cvs.zip (Windows version)I wanted a command line utility since I have automated the conversion of my FLAC files to AAC. I downloaded the tools, used the command "mp4creator -optimize file.m4a" and the files now play just fine on the Shuffle! Yeah!! Now I don't have to re-encode my 5,000 FLAC files with another encoder. Decided to post this solution here in case anyone else encounters the same problem.
