I have to convert up to 309 individual 33.6mb files to a .tod is there a faster way of doing this?
I'm changing the files one at a time by "file info"-"Name" and adding .tod but this will take to long, I'm only just learning on my imac, so I don't know all the short cuts yet.
Thanks heaps

There are lots of free file renaming utilities that will change just the extension for you. Here's a couple:

Download Rename for Mac - Simple file rename application. MacUpdate.com
Download NameChanger for Mac - Batch file renaming tool. MacUpdate.com


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu). Also advise us if you have any antivirus or "cleaning" software installed on your Mac. If you are using MacKeeper, you are hereby advised to uninstall it.
