OC FLAC format - freezes my player


Recommended Posts

I just wondered...

Is there something special you do with your flacs?

Some of your albums won't play all of the songs on my Cowon J3 music player.

Albums with errors:

Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix Soundtrack

- The song Flying Heaven (Fei Long Stage) freezes the player

DKC2: Serious Monkey Business

- The songs Monkeys Disarm Their Kremlings, Simian Soirée and Paleolithic Park freeze my player.

Pokémon: The Missingno Tracks

- The song The Mighty Mighty Pokémon freezes my player

They play fine on my PC, but my player is picky when it comes to flac quality. I have no problems with the Castlevania album or any of the albums I have ripped to flac myself. Neither do I have problems with any other format.

Since you mentioned that your own flac files work, you could try converting them to wav and back to flac with your own conversion method.

The only other thing that came to mind is I noticed is two of the three songs have a special character (accented e).

I guess I'll give up on FLAC on my J3. I can't hear the difference between 320kbps mp3 and FLAC anyway (almost no one can).

It's best to store files in FLAC though, as it's the easiest format to convert and it's lossless compressed.

But thanks for the help, mate :)
