    Batch Ripper - newbie questions

    Apologies if some of this is basic

    I've been using an older version of the format converter and CD ripper for a long time and have always found them excellent. However, I need to convert a load of .wma files to flac, as my music server player won't handle .wma above 192kbps, but can handle lossless FLAC.

    So I purchased the full R14 Converter, but can't see how the Batch converter works.

    I open a folder (either from the file list with a right click, or with Batch Converter itself), but can see nowhere to specify output folders or output format.

    There must be something simple missing (and not just part of my brain)


    Thanks,

    Keiron.

    When you click 'Convert' then you specify encoder + path.

    Thanks, Spoon.

    Aye, but there's the rub. I click on Convert, and the screen blinks, and then stays as it is. I get nothing else - no option to enter or define anything else. This happens if I click Convert on the screen header, or if I list the files, select them and click convert on the screen footer. Nothing else appears. It feels as though a component is missing.

    Maybe I'll uninstall and try again.

    If Batch Converter hides then it is still processing files (if you had 1000's). Try with only a few files selected first to get the process.

    Spoon, thanks.

    I'm trying with just one folder, containing a subfolder with one album (12 tracks). It just doesn't do anything or present any option to specify output destination nor format. The files are Windows Media Audio 9.2 Lossless with a sample rate of 48Khz and 24 bit sample size.

    I open Batch Converter (doesn't matter whether I do a right click on the file folder, or open and then select the folder).

    Click on Convert, or list the files (which display) and click on convert.

    Nothing happens. Nada. Zilch.

    This is just one folder with one subfolder with 12 wma tracks

    I've uninstalled Batch converter and re-installed.

    Just tried this on a folder with a sub-folder containing wma 9.2 lossless 48kHz 24-bit with no problems (Windows 7 64-bit).

    What OS? Does this work for you for flac or mp3 files?

    Oh, it works fine with Music Converter when I select individual files - no problems. It's the batch bit that doesn't do anything.

    Hmm.

    May use NCH Switch Sound File Converter Instead. Seems to do batch conversion for my wma files to flac without any problems at all.
