This isn't actually the problem! I've always been able to get around this by using Trader's Little Helper (TLH) to convert the .flac files to .wav files, amending the cuesheet accordingly and then the CD has always been burned and verified without any further problems. However, a couple of weeks ago when I tried to burn a CD from .wav files I got the following message:
On the first occurrence, I burned the disc anyway...and ended up with 12 tracks of complete silence. Very relaxing, but not quite what I was hoping for. Since then I've been able to burn CDs by continually re-converting the .flac files to .wav files (using both TLH and Foobar2000) until ImgBurn accepts them. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling ImgBurn, Foobar2000, VLC MediaPlayer, TLH and Winamp in an attempt to solve the problem - all to no avail.
Having exhausted what seemed to be the logical solutions, today I took the seemingly bizarre step of using TLH to re-encode the .flac files to - erm - .flac files, then converting the re-encoded files into .wav files and burning from those. Guess what? I've had a 100% success rate so far!
I've no idea why I suddenly started getting the DirectShow error, as I don't think I've changed my PC setup in any way (bar maybe updating my version of VLC) in between there being no problem and the problem starting. Does anyone have an explanation, please? I seem to have a workaround now, but I don't know why I need it in the first place!
