Windvd Audio Problems

Hey I am having trouble importing audio files into my project. I have tried from iTunes and Cd's. Do I have to convert the files to mp3 or wav and if so how do I do that?? When I go into Import media files and find the song I want to import nothing comes up in the file name under audio files and if I try to drag and drop I get this message "Make sure that this is a valid file type and that it's contents have not been corrupted". Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Let me know if you need more info. Cheers!!

I think that it is a matter of file formats or DRM protection. You can try to convert the audio to mp3. Or if there is DRM protection you can try to remove them with some tools. There are some great ways have been developed to help you convert the iTunes DRM M4B audiobook to MP3 so that you can easily transfer and play the iTunes audiobook file on any device or platform you like. If you want to convert the iTunes DRM M4B audiobook to MP3 but don't know how, just keep reading as we will introduce 4 different ways for you to do the conversion task effectively.

You are using windvd so that must mean you use windows, i'm not sure if you have to convert but if you do, (just try)
if you want to use it from a cd, start windows media player, go to the rip menu, and rip the songs to the prefered location

itunes format is probably m4p, m4a or m4b, you can convert these with Protected Music Converter
it's even free!

    whoops, it isn't free, sorry, but you can probably use the trial

Itunes - is there any way for itunes to pay .flac files? I'd like to be able to download flac files, import into itunes, and stream to apple tv

Yes you can play .flac files in iTunes. Its very easy just download a apple script named "fluke". Download from the following link if you are a MAC user.
http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/28768/fluke/

It's free for MAC but if you are a Windows user you can try the conversion software dBpoweramp (Free limited version will still get the job done) and download the trial version from the following.
http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm
This link also gives some explanation on how to use this program and you can directly install it on your Windows computer.

(In order to open the link just hover your mouse on the link and click)

The following link gives the instructions for using Fluke script for MAC users

Why cant I add music.....all suuported audio music files....the program is not recognizing any of my music files as "supported files." ?????

I found the following information on Individual Software's website. Apparently, music downloaded from the Internet, or bought online, for example using iTunes, may cause problems with SlideShow Expressions. I include a link for more reading; go to 'frequently asked questions': http://support.individualsoftware.com.

Here is some of the info:

Why won't my music files work in Photo & Video Expressions? [SlideShow too, I guess]

Photo & Video Expressions is not compatible with audio files that have been protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM) functionality. Most audio files purchased online through Internet music retailers like iTunes, Urge, or Rhapsody are encrypted with some form of DRM. Similarly, audio files that have been extracted from a CD or DVD (the process known as "ripping") using certain media applications (iTunes, Windows Media Player, etc.) often have default settings that encrypt the files extracted.

There is no way to use DRM audio files purchased from online music retailers with Photo & Video Expressions. However, if you want to use music and audio files that you have extracted from your CD collection, then all you have to do is change the ripping setting in your media application before you extract the files to your computer.


Suggestions are given on how to change ripping settings in iTunes and Windows Media Player.


However, it is always good to contact the technical support team at individualsoftware.com. You first have to register your product with them in order to get help, but this online assistance is free and worthwhile trying out.

ITunes will not import music from my hard drive when I copy the music or try to add the music to my library.

Make sure that the music you are trying to sync is not .WMA file types.

To convert other file types into .MP3, please google and install Switch Audio Converter.

After everything has been converted, your songs are ready to be imported to iTunes.

Olympus VN-2100PC exported files

The only way I have found to convert the files is to use Nero or ITunes. Those are the only two methods I've found to read the file. ITunes can both burn them to an audio cd and convert the file to mp3.
