.m4a files

I just noticed a folder with .m4a files (music) that does not show up in the library - the folder shows up, but not the files.

.m4a files must be a rare music format.

in the Fopnu library, right click the folder that contains the m4a files and go to file types and select other (make sure audio is selected as well). that should let those files be shared.

I may be wrong but I seem to remember that the itunes files are DRM laden

I would caution against sharing such files as the metadata contained within them is traceable back to the original purchaser.
