Aiff Format Support

Question

Hi, I got some files in AIFF from one of my SGTs (crazy girl likes Macs). she's still in the AOR so i can't ask her to redo the files.

 

WMP on my T30 says no way, but quick time basic free DL plays the audio tracks fine. EMC9 will not load them into a song list, says AIFF is not supported. OK but what to do?

 

Is there another version of Roxio that supports AIFF. Or, preferred, is there an AIFf to WMA converter appication that someone can recommend? Thanks.

Again if you have EMC 9 why post in 'Easy CD and DVD Burning (in Red Box): Vista & Windows 7 Compatible'?

 

AIFF co-developed by Apple Computer in 1988, Audio Interchange File Format. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audio_Interchange_File_Format

 

Do a Google search for AIFF converter, you'll find plenty,

well, first i am not a typist - never learned. so keeping things short is best.

 

Second, from the versions pinned topic at the top:

"Then there was the Second version, a cut-down version of Easy Media Creator 9 labeled Vista Compatible". So, my red box "Easy CD and DVD Burning (in Red Box): Vista & Windows 7 Compatible" is a subset of EMC9.

 

"EMC9" is 4 characters. "Easy CD and DVD Burning (in Red Box): Vista & Windows 7 Compatible" is SIXTY SIX characters. Can you follow me here??

 

I knew about the format, i guess I'll have to find a decent converter. Should i convert to WMA or MP3? WMA is supposed to be a higher quality but MP3 is more universal. I'm pretty sure that EMC9 (there i go again) can handle both. These would be put on traditional audio CDs not on those little MP3 players, which i generally despise for the poor sound quality.

Remember what I told you in your other post?

 

"The board has some overzealous moderators that would of moved your post as soon as they saw EMC9!" :ninja::lol::ninja:

 

 

You have Red Box, SIX characters. Why not say that or nothing at all since your one of the few users that know what version of Roxio Software they use. :rolleyes:

 

Saying EMC9 4 characters I guarantee you will get your posts moved to the EMC9 forum.. ;)

You're welcome, cd. :lol:

 

 

Mike,

 

About converters, if you do a Google search for "AIFF converters" you'll find a heap of different ones in your results. Some are commercial, some are free. I've never had to convert, so I can't recommend one.

 

If you're planning to put the result on audio CDs and fidelity is important to you, I'd suggest you find a converter which will output to WAV file. These will go straight to audio CD without loss of information, whereas if you convert your AIFFs to MP3 first, then the MP3s to audio CD you'll lose audio information - MP3s are a compressed and lossy file format.

 

Best regards,

Brendon
