Preferred Solution: Converting File Types

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Converting File Types

I don't use CorelDraw X3, but when you go to save the file, is there not an option to save it as different file types, with jpeg being one of them?If not, XnView should be able to convert it for you.

Hey I have a question that i just can't find the answer to online. Does anyone know how to quickly convert a large amount of Itunes song files into WMA files or MP3 files. I'd really like to buy an MP3 player for myself and i don't want an ipod really. My brother and sister have an ipod so they have many songs i can use on itunes, which currently can't be downloaded onto an MP3 player because it is the wrong file type. If anyone knows a way to covert files to WMA or MP3 from Itunes files please tell. (other than burning the songs to a cd and reloading them onto my computer) Thanks

Basically, what I want to do is take video files off my computer and be able to watch them on my digital camera. When I transfer a video file onto my camera, however, I get "file error". I figured the videos needed to be in the format that my camera recorded in (.AVI) and I can convert the files but it still will not work. My guess is that the codec needs to be the same as well but I am having trouble getting the videos into the same codec that my camera records in. I have a Samsung Digimax 430 and the video codec is included on the software cd that came with it. I am just wondering if someone can point me toward a good program (this is important enough that I am willing to buy one) or tell me how to go about doing this.

Thanks!

Hi guys,

Would really appreciate some help!! I need to get a project finished ASAP, that I discovered had gone all pearshaped this morning (techy I know).

I am using Camtasia Studio from TechSmith.com. The projects files save as .camproj

The files will not let me open them. I get an error message saying that the program (Camtasia Studio) does not support that file type. When I look at these not working file properties, it says .camproj~

I need these files!! Any idea on how to convert them to the correct file type? I have tried Opening With - Camtasia Studio, but to no avail.

It has been working fine. The only thing I did differently last night was to backup my files to an external hard drive (ironically, the Camtasia Studio folder is the only empty one that didn't back up for some reason.) I also tried to defrag the harddrive. I left the laptop on all night, and was still apparently defragging 8 hours later... Any way, different issue!

Any ideas much appreciated!! Thank you!

I'm sure there's a way to do this, but it's out of my realm of digging in windows.

What I need essentially is a Symbolic Folder that will scan a set directory and only return specific file types.

For example, I have five folders with .jpgs, .psds, and .txt.

What I would like is to create a folder that when opened will only show me .txt files from those directories.

Is there a program, or service that will allow me to do this?

A:Symbolic File Folder with Specified File Types?

This is quite easy to do with Windows Search.

This example is how to create a shortcut to all images on chosen folder (location), inclusive all its subfolders:Open the location you want to use as root. In this example I'll use Libraries
Type to search field kind:image, click Save Search:
.

.
Name the search as you want to, click Save:
.

.
Now when you open the folder %USERPROFILE%\Searches, you'll find shortcuts to all your predefined searches:
.
Using the same method you can create shortcuts to almost anything. Some search criteria examples:ext:pdf = all PDF-files (extension .pdf)
ext:jpg = all JPG-files (extension .jpg)
datemodified:‎01/‎09/‎2010 .. ‎31/‎10/‎2010 = all files modified between 1st of September 2010 and 31st of October 2010 (notice the date should be in default format used by the current Windows user account)
kind:music = all music files

When I tried changing the icon of 'File Folder' in 'Folder Options' --> 'File
Types' , by mistake I made 'find' in 'Action' list ('Advanced' button) the
default. Now I am unable to remove it. So whenever I try double clicking a
folder, a search window appears.

Now I don't want anything in the list to be made default. System does not
allow me to do so.

What I tried to do and how it failed?
1. I tried adding a new action item with the application as 'explorer.exe'
and made it the default. After this whenever I double click a folder it opens
in a new window. Note that the Browse folder settings in General tab of
'Folder Options' is still 'Open folders in the same window'

2. There is a checkbox in 'Advanced' settings for 'File Folder' with label
'Browse in same window'. This option is unchecked and the best part is, this
is disabled.

3. Even file folder is not present in file types..
How do I go back to my old settings where in no item in Action list is set
as default?

I routinely transfer folder contents (MSWord docs, XL spreadsheets and the like) to a back-up computer. In doing so today, I noticed files being transferred with extensions like .dl (thumbs.dl), .hdl, etc. I've never noticed these before. Are there files hidden in these folder that don't show up when viewing hte contents of the folders via Windows Explorer? I've had a wack-o keyboard lately, have scanned the system with nine (9) different tools and found nothing. What are those files doing hanging out with a bunch of generic stuff?

What are some common file types that i dont need?
 

A:here! FiLe TyPeS**

This is a very broad question - it rather depends upon what you have on your PC and why you need to make room more space on you drive (I'm assuming that is what you need to do).

All .tmp (Tempory) files can usually be deleted safely, and some files for unused sound schemes, desktop themes and some font files may be deleted, but, and this is a very big BUT, you have to be sure the files, particularly text files, are not being used by an application or file you want to use. For instance deleting the basic Windows fonts would prove disastrous in the short term.

To identify what file extensions belong where you could take a look at this comprehensive site first:

http://filext.com/

But perhaps before proceeding further you could give a bit more depth to your question. For instance, there may be better ways to free up space on your harddrive that we could advise, if that is what you are trying to do.

Hi,
Having just upgraded from Vista (great move) I find I have a couple of files in
my folders that I cannot now read. It is not a BIG deal if I cannot but I should still like to be able to.
These are ".eml" files which, I believe, were attachments through Windows Mail which,of course, is gone in Windows 7. I only use Google Mail now in any event.
Is there any way these files can be converted to a readable format ? There are a few pay for converters on the web but I do not want these really. I believe there is a way that these can be converted to mht or likewise. Help would be appreciated.
Incidentally, ten days into Windows 7 has been a revelation...speed, no errors, BSODs or any of the Vista plagues. Best move I ever made.

Hello Peter,

To be able to read/open a .eml (email) file, you would need to install a email client program. A good free one would be Windows Live Mail. In it, you coud also setup an email account to read your Google Mail in as well.

I'm running Firefox 2.0.0.7

I've never had any problems with Firefox, other than the memory leak, until just recently. For some reason, I can't download .mp3 or .mov files anymore. If I click on a link to one, nothing will happen. If I right-click and choose "Save Link As" the save window will open, but it'll have "redirect.mov" as the file name rather than the actual file name, and when I click save, the download will appear in the download manager, but never start. The main site I've been having trouble with is Revision3.

http://revision3.com/diggnation/2007-09-20travislopes For example. If I click the "Download Now" button, nothing happens. I can download the .wmv version, but not .mov or .mp3. I've tried in Internet Explorer and both those file types will download there.

I've never had this problem before, but I know someone else who at one point wasn't able to download anything with Firefox. I reinstalled Firefox, which worked, but the problem came back the next day.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what is wrong?

A:Can't download certain file types

The Download Now button at Revision3 doesn't actually download the file, it opens a QuickTime window and streams the MP3, so right-clicking the Download Now button and selecting Save won't save the MP3, just the redirect link.

In Firefox, go to Tools > Options > Content tab > Manage button and scroll down to MP3 and MOV. What is listed as their Actions?

If you click the Change Action button for both MP3 and MOV you can choose to 'Save them on my computer'. This should allow you to save the file rather than streaming it through the QuickTime plugin.

I recently went through all my registered file types and changed the file extensions that are always hidden (even if you uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types"). This worked fine except that I had not anticipated that all my desktop icons would be followed by ".lnk". I tried to change it back, but when I looked in the list of registered file types in Explorer folder options, LNK was no longer listed. I figured that something that might work would be recreating it by clicking "New" and entering LNK, but I know that it won't work unless I enter the correct wording in "Associated File Type". The problem is that I can't remember that exact wording, and I can't pick it out of the list of 8 million file associations that I have to choose from. I also am not 100% sure that the above procedure will work, anyway. This is not a huge deal, but unresolved issues like this always bug me. Does anybody have any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

How would I go about this? I dislike having thumbnail previews of certain file types like video's. But I want my Jpgs, gifs, png's and such, basicly pictures to have Thumbnail previews still. Thats all. The only option Seven gives me is all or none.

A:I want to have thumbnails for only some file types...

You may use Shark007's FREE Codec solutions - Windows 7 codecs . It provides thumbnail preview turn on\off mechanism for some codecs.

i was changing the icon for my file folders. i went to folder options, file types, and clicked advanced for the "file folders", then change icon. i have no idea what happened, but now when i double click a file, like "my pictures" for example, instead of the file opening, the search companion comes up. when i right click a file, the options are as follows in this order: Search, Open, Add to winamp's bookmark list, Enqueue in winamp, Play in winamp, and Explore. when i click on the open option, i get an error message - "windows cannot find 'C:\documents and settings\all users\my documents\my pictures'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search."
Now, i went and looked at the folder options, file types, file folder, advanced, and in the actions window, the follow is listed: Enqueue in winamp, play in winamp, add to winamps bookmark list, find, and open. when i click on these options, i am not allowed to edit or remove them.
How do i get it so when i double click on a folder, it will open, eg - have the original options of open, explore, and search when right clicked on?
Please help, thank you.

Windows XP - under c/program files/data

I have 4 files I cannot open

backpage.cci 320KB
dad.ccf 650KB
gertie.ccf 8446KB
Joyce.ccf 85KB

I have no idea about the backpage.cci but Dad, Gertie and Joyce are members of my family.

I have tried every program on my computer to open them - but nothing works. I hope not to delete these files before I find out what they contain.

I have searched the internet to try and identify these file endings to no avail.

Can someone enlighten me - do I dare change the file endings?

Thank you - MissDaizy

Can anyone help

This is my first encounter with the Tech Support Guy forum and I have a few first questions all relating to the same problem.
I have been attempting to create an auto-running cd/dvd for my place of work consisting of a SWishMax developed slideshow with intro.
The file type is swf when published and swi when editing, I realise that I could create an auto run cd/dvd from Flash 8 Pro (Ive gone half way through the process of creating a project using this technology but found it difficult to grasp to the level I require thats why I jumped to SWishMax).
Anyway to cut to the chase, I am having trouble finishing off the project, when I try to save the swf file to a format that will play on wmp an avi for example the interactive components dont work, i.e. the link from the intro to the slideshow and the intro just keeps on looping without the option of viewing the slideshow.
What I need to know is
Can a swf file from SWiSHMax be burned to a dvd suitable to be played via a dvd player to a tv?
Will it retain any built-in interactivity?
Will I need to purchase 3rd party software?
Does the autorun inf enable the exe to open direct or will I still need to open from "My Computer"?

Sorry there are several issues in this one post I thought I get them all aired at the same time possibly to save time

thanks in anticipation
