I've just installed the latest Nero 10 suite on a new Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit PC. I have a whole bunch of Monkey's Audio APE lossless compressed audio files. When I try to play them in Mediahub, they don't work. According to Nero support, they support APE files. The Nero docs also have APE listed in the supported CODECs list.
When I try to open an APE file in Mediahub, it shows the title and duration, but all the other media info areas say N/A. And, next to the track listing in the Mediahub player window, there is an ! symbol, which, when hovered over says: "The file could not be loaded. It is probably not supported or damaged". The file is not damaged. I can play it with Winamp, running in a VMWare XP virtual machine on the same PC.
Nero support has not been of much help yet, so wondering if anyone else has run into this? Might it be a Win 7 64 bit issue? Or maybe APE support is busted in Nero 10? Or maybe the APE compression settings I used when I made these APE files are not compatible with Nero?
If anyone has Nero 10 loaded on a Win7 64 bit system, and could comment on whether thy can play APE files, that would be most helpful.
