File extension .LINK
|Apple IPod Link Format||N/A||Misc Files|
The LINK file extension is associated with a iPod file format. It is used by iPod devices to sync and store data such as music, videos and photos. LINK files are created when the user synchronizes the iPod device with their Mac or PC.
An LINK file typically contains information about the media files stored on iPod, including track titles, artist names and playback times. It also stores file paths to external media libraries, and references to playlists and other customized settings. The file generally does not contain the music data itself; this data is found stored in other specific file types such as .mp3, .aac, .m4v, and .m4a. The information contained in the LINK file tells that application (such as iTunes) where to find this data.
Overview of LINK File Usage
The purpose of the LINK file is to keep media files located on an iPod in line with the same media files located in external libraries and other locations. The data stored in a LINK file assists with the customization of settings on a user's iPod. For example, it can tell iTunes how to sort playlists according to the criteria set by the user, applicable to songs from one or multiple libraries.

After installing the required software, the operating system will usually automatically associate an unknown file type (in this case .LINK) with the new application. If this does not happen, we can help the system a bit by selecting the software for it, which it should always use to open files with the .LINK extension.
When choosing the software we can select the system to use this software every time.
Using it for the first time it is good to check whether the .LINK file opened in the application can be read by us and opens in a way that allows us to use it. If everything is in order, select this option the next time you open a file with the .LINK extension. However, if the file has not opened correctly, we have to look for a different software, with which we can open files with the .LINK extension. Select a different software from our list and install it on your computer. After the software is installed, repeat inspection openings of a .LINK file. Sometimes you have to repeat the operation several times.
If none of the programs listed by us to work with the .LINK file has not meet your expectations, you can try searching other websites. But remember to avoid downloading programs "that can open any file". These applications not only have very limited functionality, but may also expose you to expense tens of dollars when purchasing a license.
In the vast majority of cases you will find the program dedicated to support the .LINK file, or any other file format. In addition, there is a chance that it will be a free program, and its functionality (concerning the .LINK file) will be extended to the maximum.
It is also good to check
- if the .LINK file has no errors
- or if it has been copied (or downloaded by the browser) thoroughly
