Hi all,

Has anyone else experienced this?  I used to keep various versions of my tracks : eg I would import a purchased CD and would also convert it to MPEG.  Or, I have created my own content/tracks and have them in various sources (when I cut CDs for clients, some have MPEG players and other need to play on older CD players).  I have just found that 99.9% of my files are now MPEGs.  This means where I used to have apparent duplicates (which werent, because they were different file formats), I now really do have duplicates: all MPEGs.  Please don't tell me I am going to have to go through and convert them all back as I discover them?!?!   This has just added days and days of work - Apple how could you?????
