I have a number of cd's with some of my windows 7 files, i.e Musical compositions/pictures and other data. Is there a way to convert them to be used with Ubuntu?
Music (.MP3, .FLAC, .WAV etc), Documents (.TXT,.DOC,.DOCX,.XLS,.XLSX,.PPT,.PPTX,.PDF etc), Pictures (.PNG, .JPEG, .GIF, .TIF, .SVG etc) can all be used fine in Ubuntu. In fact, Ubuntu will take more different files than Windows 7. Computer files are not specific for any OS. What might not work out-of-the-box in Ubuntu are game files, since they will most likely be in binary format, specifically for the game they were used for. But even this often works by using Wine or PlayOnLinux.
