I have alot of new music that I want to convert to high quality. I have some music that is on MP3 LAME 320kbps and is in joint stereo. The music is on the most updated LAME version. The rest of my music is on MP3 Fraunhofer 320kbps and is also in JS. My questions are: What codec should I use to convert my new music? How many kbps? or should I use WMA lossless or MP3 Helix? add use CBR, VBR, or JS when converting?

No conversion can increase the quality of your music files. The best you could do is to get the SAME quality (by converting from mp3 to, say, FLAC or some other lossless format). But this would be a waste of time and space as all you'd have would be a lossless version of a lossy file (a lot larger with no improvement in "quality", however that is defined). Do some reading on lossless (FLAC, etc.) and lossy compression. You'll find lots of info on the web and at this site.
