Converting files
Note: Some audio files are protected with digital rights management (DRM) and cannot be converted.
To convert audio files to a different audio file format, follow these steps:
1 From Roxio Home, click Batch Convert and Transfer on the Music - Audio project tab.
Audio Converter opens.
2 Click Add Tracks, and use the Media Selector dialog to select the audio files or tracks you want to convert. Files can be selected from a hard disk, CD, DVD, or iPod. You may be able to add audio files from other portable devices, depending on the file and device type.
3 To update the audio tags for the selected files, click Edit Audio Tags. The Edit Audio Tags dialog box opens. Edit the audio tags (for more information, click Help on the Edit Audio Tags dialog box) and click Done to close the dialog box.
4 Click Convert.
5 Select Keep original files to keep the original source files.
Warning: If you do not select this option, the original files will be deleted.
6 In the Conversion settings box, choose the new audio file format. (For more options, click Edit.)
7 Optional: To ensure the loudest sound output possible without distortion, click Maximize volume before exporting.
8 To create a folder structure and file names based on audio tags (such as artist and album name), select Subfolder / file name structure, and choose the folder structure and file naming convention you want to use. You can view your changes in the Preview box.
9 In the Target folder box, specify the location on the hard disk or network where you want to store the converted files.
10 Select what to do if a file with the same name already exists in a folder.
11 Click Convert.
