    "Run as Admin in Windows 7"

    March 14, 2010  |   By cas94

    Pros

    Seems to work okay for music.

    Cons

    Not intuitive how it works. It splits long audiobooks into 8 minute tracks on each "disc" so you are left with around 10 files. It seems to have trouble with file names for these audiobook "tracks" and occasionally quits for no reason.

    Summary

    As other reviewers mention, it would not work initially with Windows 7 32 bit and iTunes 9. However by starting Noteburner in Administrative mode before starting iTunes 9, it seems to work as described for music (mp3 and mp4 output). For audiobooks it seems to be a work in progress. Soundtaxi has worked much more reliably for audiobooks. However, the reviewers who say it just doesn't work should try running it in Admin mode. That might help salvage the purchase price. Personally I wouldn't buy it again, but I'll continue working with it to see if I can adjust some settings to overcome the issues I've had with audiobooks.

    Thanks for this. I too eventually got it working in Windows 7. The trick seems to be that you need to exit both iTunes and NoteBurner via the Task Manager, and then you can restart NoteBurner in Admin mode, then start iTunes and proceed. And you need to put in your registration code a second time once it's open in admin mode.

    Ugh. Not great, but hopefully it will free me from iTunes.
