previous versions of Music maker software I was able to drag and drop M4A file into Music maker, now all of a sudden music maker does not recognized the file, can I please know what changed, I want to continue to use your software but can't and wont continue my support if this is unable to be resolved.
Welcome to the Magix user to user forums. As such, this is not our software so we cannot tell you anything about what changed.
However, we would like to at least try and help you so first, please tell us exactly which version and variant of MM you have, you can check this under Help>About. Second, have you tried to use File>Open on one of your m4a files? Does this make any difference?
Since I have no .m4a files on my computer so cannot test this in the latest version, would it be possible for you to post one somewhere, not to the forum, for others to download and test on their systems to see what results they achieve?
. . . . I was able to drag and drop M4A file into Music Maker . . .
A m4a file is an audio file in a video container file, if the internal encoding is one of the supported audio formats then it may import through the video importer, however there is a bug issue with video files - item 1 on the known bug list here.
Hi @browj2, thanks for checking. What I have been doing since MM 2014 is recording on Win Voice recorder and moving the files, Wave, Mp3..., to MM, to create whatever I need. I will find another recorder, I understand Windows update may have updated and default the codec for recording to AAC, may have been a bit overly frustrated after struggling with this. would have been awesome if MM just did the conversion automatically like ME...
@emmrecs are you saying "Magix Music Maker" is not your software?...? or are you talking about the M4A audio format? I have MM Version 220.127.116.11
