Hello, new to the forum so be gentle.


Spent the last two days skimming through articles on the 'net, with the ImgBurn forum as primary source, of course.  Burned before with downloading codec packs and M$ scaring the bejeezers about such "packs."


I've read the following posts:

I am getting an error that seems to indicate that I still lack the filter, even though my native WMP12(?) can play the M4A file directly,  I thought that if at least one media player in the system can directly play the file, it has the codecs that can be used by ImgBurn.  Or, is being able to play the file not indicative of the required filter/codec?


Excerpt of log below with just one of the many files:


I 15:22:49 ImgBurn Version started!
I 15:22:49 Microsoft Windows 8 Professional x64 Edition (6.2, Build 9200)

E 15:23:19 File Name: C:\Users\User\Music\iTunes\iTunes Media\Music\TKA\Greatest Hits\02 Come Get My Love.m4a
E 15:23:19 Reason: No combination of intermediate filters could be found to make the connection.
E 15:23:19 Hint: You may need to install some additional DirectShow filters in order to support files of this type or the file might be corrupt.


I have tried running ImgBurn as an Admin but did not have much hope since ImgBurn has worked flawlessly with data CD/DVD/BD-R burning, etc.

I never install any sort of codec pack, I just install additional individual codecs as and when I need them.

For m4a, I'm using the Orban one.

Being able to play a file doesn't mean the necessary DirectShow filters are installed that ImgBurn can then pass a file to the system as 'input' and have it output in the correct format for burning to disc.
