  1. I tried a 24-bit WAV file as well and got the same error. Is it possible that the drivers imgBurn relies on do not support 24-bit audio data?
  2. I spoke too soon. When I convert 24-bit FLAC to 16-bit FLAC, imgBurn is happy. When I convert 24-bit FLAC to 24-bit FLAC (and file size changes so its not just a file copy), imgBurn fails to load the file. So it appears to be a limitation with madFlac after all.
  3. All: Never mind, I used Audacity to rewrite the FLAC files and they are parsed correctly by imgBurn. Sorry for the wild goose chase.
  4. So, I just D/Led and ran an app ListDlls and madFlac.dll did not show up... This implies that madFlac.dll did not install. Yet the behavior of imgBurn changed after I ran the install... Also, other FLAC files parse and burn just fine. How do I confirm that madFlac.dll actually got installed properly (there was a Windows pop-up warning that the install might have failed due to compatibility issues...) but since the behavior of imgBurn changed, I assumed that the install was successful. I'm running Win7Pro.
  5. Cholla: I wish there was a way I could send you one of these files but that would violate copyright law...
  6. cholla: other FLAC files are handled without problem. It is just these FLAC files that cause the problem. That seems to point to file corruption issues rather that filter issues. Also, the fact that eac3to (which doesn't use LAV filters) aborted at the exact same position on multiple files and at a nice binary position (10.0000h) suggests that the files are not corrupt per se, but that there was an issue with the file writing (or that there is a compatibility issue.)
  7. cholla: yes, I have LAV filters installed. Also, I have other FLAC files that load and burn correctly so the issue is these FLAC files in particular. dbminter: Multiple FLACs from the same source but different CDs. I don't know when they were exported or what app was used, but since it was an anthology, I suspect they were all written at the same time by the same app. According to MediaInfo, the writing library was libFLAC 1.2.1 (UTC 2007-09-17) but garbage in, garbage out as they say. The eac3to app is pretty awesome and accepts and converts multiple audio and video formats. It has never failed me. And its free.
  8. Well, since eac3to couldn't convert to ac3, I think my only option is vlc media player in streaming mode... That sucks! Also, did you see my comment that the eac3to conversion aborted on multiple files at the same binary address (10.0000h)?
  9. So far -- I can recode a FLAC to another FLAC with eac3to but I get an error when I try to write out M4A or AC3: both abort at file position 1048576. What's more, I've tried a few of the FLAC files and they all abort at the same file position. The file position 1048576 is 10.0000 hex, which is very interesting. Random corruption COULD hit a nice binary boundary in one file but it not likely to hit the same boundary in multiple files. This seems like a software issue by the file writer. Anyone seen this before or can recommend a workaround?
  10. Well, eac3to didn't have a problem with it when I reprocessed the FLAC to another FLAC so I doubt it is formatted improperly or corrupt -- otherwise, eac3to should have barfed the file, but I'll give it a try. Please stand by...
  11. So I used eac3to334 to write the flac to another flac (the file got a little smaller) but the error message was the same. And I just tried some older flac/cue files and they still load up okay. So I guess there are multiple versions of flac? Or flac is just a container like mkv? Why do some flac work fine and others do not? Can you folks give me some idea as to why different flac are handled differently?
  12. Okay, the error message changed: ImgBurn: ConnectFilters(Source, Sample Grabber) Failed! File Name: <...>.flac Reason: No combination of intermediate filters could be found to make the connection. Hint: You may need to install some additional DirectShow filters in order to support files of this type or the file might be corrupt. What are my next steps?
  13. I have burned numerous FLAC files in the past but I have some that cause the following error: ActiveMovie Window: Imgburn.exe - System Error The program can't start because MagCore.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem. I believe ActiveMovie is a predecessor to DirectShow but I don't understand why this error is suddenly cropping up as I have made no system changes since the last time I burned FLAC files. Also, they play okay with VLC. Any ideas? MediaInfo: General Complete name : C:\Users\...
