mp3, disk utility, second hdd, wanda

are there any effective ways to get Rythmbox to like mp3 or to convert and mp3 file into something that it does like? i got my hands on a second hdd for free (it's a cute 75Gb one...lol) and i'm running a disk utility on it to make sure it's ok. i would like to know the best way to install another hard drive and have fedora realize that it's there and possibly use it for space. i am assuming that the Self Test option under the disk utility does at least a half way decent job. When i try to run the self test on my main hard drive it states "FAILED (Read)" and the only thing that is red is a warning for Current Pending Sector Count. So would that tell you that you have to do a checkdisk and defrag kind of thing? and last but not least, wth is wanda? all she has said to me is just jibberish. thanks for your time guys.
