    Adobe CS6 and m4a files


      Adobe CS6 opens and edits m4a files on my Mac like a champ.  When I try to do the same on my PC, all kinds of error screens.  What gives?

      Any simple solutions?


      Thank you.

          I don't know what the exactly correct answer is (there may not be one), but this is all going to be down to codecs on the PC version. M4a is something that Macs handle inherently, and the codec for turning them into wav files and back again (this is the only file type that Audition handles) is part of Core Audio. Same does not apply to PCs, unfortunately. I think that the provision has been improved in CC, but it has also been suggested that unfortunately, the best way of handling this is to use an external converter...
