I need to convert these files because the tags do not display in WMP11 when I right click the properties on one the tags say.

If you right click on it and it shows the above then dBpowermap knows about the file, what happens if you right click >> Convert To?

Absolutely nothing, the all the other file types show in their folders though and I have the m4a filter available.

There is 'convert to' on the right click?

Yes, it is there, however it does nothing.

Uninstall dBpoweramp, reboot windows and reinstall dbpoweramp.
