Converting .apk files to MPC 1000 .pgm files

Hi!

I'm sorry if this question has been answered time and time again. I tried searching, but couldn't find any help.

I used to own an MPC 4000 for years and I have a huge program library sitting on a hard drive. Yesterday I got an MPC 1000 and ran into the issue of it being unable to read .apk files right out the gate.

I'm obviously able to convert the .apk files to .pgms using something like Blue Box, but the number of programs I have is well in the hundreds, it'd take me forever to go through all of them manually.

So does anybody know an application that can do this conversion in batch or alternatively a command line utility that can do it. I'm well versed enough in programming that I could easily script the batch myself if a utility would take care of the actual translation of files.

Thanks for all your help in advance!

Can't say for certain, but check out Chicken Systems Translator 6. At least they claim that this conversion should work: http://www.chickensys.com/chickensys/support/software/translator/akais5000/
