    Lightbulb How to Optimize M4a Layout without converting!

    Hi! :blush:
    I have thousands of files in m4a that I've encoded over the last ten years using NeroEncoder and the files have played well in itunes.
    However, the same files don't play in ipod shuffle while they do in itunes app. I've done some research and have found out that the problem is to do with the tag headers and the solution is to optimize the file.
    I tried converting and optimizing in dBpoweramp and it did the trick but I'm coverting a lossy file to a lossy file...:(
    How do I do to use the m4a optimize feature in dbpoweramp without converting the files?
    Hope someone can help me,
    Ger

    Try install the [ID Tag Update] utility codec, then convert the files to this encoder it will rewrite the tags, if you are lucky they will be in the right place.

    How do I post a new thread? The GUI confuses me.

    I'd like to ask for the procedure to convert an already digitized album (in mp3) to a wave file on a CD that I can listen to in my car.

    Install CD Writer and the 32 bit version of dBpoweramp (force the 32 bit version by hold right shift key whilst install):
