Thank you for your reply and yes, I mean the plain-old(est), non-pro version.
I have not been able to locate that thread you mentioned after an exhaustive (at least I'm exhausted) search in the archives, using every relevant keyword combination I could think of.
If you (or someone out there) could help me locate that thread you refer to I would be most grateful (wish this was experts-exchange so I could give points!).
Btw, I had expected having to locate an older Mac version, but the question is which version would be most likely to offer both v1 conversion and cross platform compatibility (perhaps I need more than one older Mac version?).
