"convert Audio Files" Right Click Menu Auto-population

Question

I just upgraded from Easy Media Creator 9 to Creator 2009. A function I liked appears to be missing! In EMC9 I was able to right click on a mp3 song file and do "move or rename file" and it would automatically populate the "move or rename file" application with the song I wanted renamed. In Creator 2009 I can right click and "convert audio files", but the song I right clicked on isn't auto-populated in the "convert audio files" application field which forces me to browse for it. This is time consuming and not convenient. Am I doing it wrong? Is there a setting to make the song auto-populate?

I haven't found a way of doing it like EMC 9 and EMC 10. Perhaps somone will come along and offer a suggestion. I don't think I ever did it that way in an older version so I can't comment but it does work the way you discussed in Creator 2009.

I dont understand why software companies like Roxio would make a product less user friendly. Microsoft did the same thing in a big way moving from XP to Vista. Cant personalize the toolbars! Duh.

Roxio had a nice quick right click function to change file attributes, why make it not auto populate?

I dont expect an answer. Sigh.

I would guess that a bunch of Roxio people and a focus group or two got together and talked about how to make the program simpler (read dumbed down) and to see what could be removed because no one asked about it. We all got the results of those meetings - Creator 2009 The latest is not always the best. BTW, I was not in any focus group (if there was one). :rolleyes:

 

I do know that the forum sections were set up to enable Roxio to see what sections were giving the most problems. :unsure:
