    NKC / NKX FILES. I have 7 gigs of samples that are in 6 files that are in nkc and nkx format. I found a post that said you need to load them in the libraries first and it will then work. but when i navigate to the folder where the nkc files are KOntakt says "no libraries Found" If anyone knows how to fix this I would really be great full to who ever can help me out.

    Someone PLEASE HELP..

    Hello webbb82 and welcome to the forum.

    What product are these from?

    Do the Instrument .nki filers load OK?

    You can't do anything without NKI files - those are the actual instruments that contain mapped samples that you play out when you load them in Kontakt. Moreover, you need a <library name>_info.nkx file (Kontakt 4) or <library name>.nicnt (Kontakt 5) files in order to even be able to add the library via "Add Library" function.

    Sounds like you need to contact Big Fish about the missing files.

    If you can post which product it is, then someone else with the same product can post what files they have.

    Also, I think that the .nkc files are some sort of "NI Kontakt Cache" files. I have seen them created when first accessing a .nkx file by loading .nki files that reference that .nkx file)

    NKC files contain pointers to the locations of all files in the monolith.
