    Question Diffrent filename endings? .aiff .aif

    Hi...

    Why do my files ripped on PC end with .aif?
    And files ripped on MAC ends with .aiff?

    Is there a box I haven't ticked?

    Thanks!

    Thomas

    I guess it is simply different OS standards. Read this dBpoweramp AIFF Codec

    Just different standards, it is on our to-do list now to change the Mac version to .aif

    Thanks Spoon, for clarifying.
    But changing Mac files to .aif??
    I mean, it's a Mac format and have always been .aiff (in Mac world, anyways)
    To me it would make a lot more sense, if AIFF files created on PC were called .aiff

    iTunes on OSX writes .aif files

    I never used iTunes.. And it's been 15 years since I last worked with .aiff And ripped CD's
    Something points to the fact that I, myself are in desperate need of a 2.0 (at least) firmwareupdate ;-)
