    Have you tried just using the gigabatch conversion feature? Worked for me with Front Porch Banjo, which btw, is one helluva nice banjo.

    Solar. 1) create a destination folder on your sample drive
    2) Copy all the entire Silk road CD to one of your drives which u can later erase once all gig have been converted.
    3) in Kontakts browser ,locate the Silk R. .gig files, open 1 up, highlight the Program
    4) Under the "tools menu" click giga patch convertion
    5) a directory will come up and ask u were u want your destination .nki and samples to be converted to. Direct it to the folder that u made in the 1st instruction.
    6) Watch Kontakt do its business. Browse for your desination folder and drag and drop the newly converted .nki into the rack and Play..
    7) repeat steps for all gig files. Rinse and Dry hair.

    I'm not getting how to convert .gig files. I'm trying to follow the instructions, but it's not working for me.

    1) I click on a gig file in Kontakt's browser. It shows a <Program> file and a <Samples> file.
    2) I highlight <Program> and choose the Giga batch conversion in the dropdown box.
    3) It asks me where I want to save the file.
    4) I choose a directory.
    5) Nothing happens...

    What am I not getting?

    Looks like your doing it perfectly to me..u choose an empty folder and nothing happens? Latest update (1.53)? I would try to completely uninstal and reinstal.
    Make sure every thing is removed..Rich
