Re: Problems Trying To Convert A File

Tom Kaufman

Hello Georgina: how do I run Switch as Admin?" The file in
question is not a commercial ffile...rather...a recording I made of myself;
the file comes from Voice Memos, which is an app on the IPhone." As I
mentioned before, I've ran this program (not the same one I downloaded) but
I have a version of Switch on the old machine; never have had this problem!

Hello Tom,

It sounds like you have copied files from one machine to another and the
computer is questioning should you be running this file as it belongs to
somone else. Try running switch with admin privileges.

Hello List: I have downloaded and installed Switch to my Windows 10
computer. Up to this point (when I was running Windows 7) never had a
problem! Now that I've gone to a different machine (a Windows 10
machine) nothing but problems (two problems to be more specific)
first, when I try to convert the file in question from4A to MP3, I am
presented with a message that says The folder C:\users\tom\music is
"read only." Please specify write in write in able folder (or that's
what it's sounded like it was
saying) how do I make this stupid Windows 10 machine understand that
this definitely a music file? I have tried changing the folder from
"read" to whatever the hell it know avail! To add to my
frustration, I am also deluged with a "security message, telling me
that an unauthorized action has been blocked! Now I know Switch to be a
good file converter!
But I need to know (and soon) how to get around these problems! I
know we have some good audio people on here and am hoping that some of
you will come forward and tell me in language that I can understand
what it is I need to do! The file plays (it definitely is a music file)
so what gives?
