I have always used Windows. Impressed with quality of Apple products. What is stopping me changing to Apple is I have a lot of .wav files stored on a portable external drive. They are a life’s work collecting. I have this fear if I try to connect the drive to a MacBook Air it will not work. Could someone put my mind at rest?
Thank you for such a quick response! I appreciate.wav will play on a Mac and if I wanted to could run Windows on a Mac. Please excuse my poor phrasing. My worry is will I be able to extract the .wav files from the external drive (set for Windows) onto the MacBook Air by simply connecting the Windows drive to Apple laptop?
Given the importance you attach to your music collection, you really should make sure you have additional back-ups of it. If the drive you are currently using fails, you could lose the lot, try and deal with it as soon as possible.
Thank you very much for a detailed reply. I am aware of this approach as I have produced .aac copies for my iPhone. On my laptop I tend to play .wav with foobar. Interesting recent info re impending ‘doom’ of iTunes for Mac but not Windows ...
