can anyone help me with burning these FLAC audio files to CDR ?
I am getting a weird error message when I try to burn these .FLAC files to CDR with Roxio Creator NXT software as follows" "the following files could not be added to the project" "this is NOT a valid supported music file" "This is not a valid or supported music file. The following audio file formats are supported: aac, ac3, flac, mp3, ogg, wav, wma, mpga, cda, m3u, wpl, asx"
I am using Roxio Creator NXT burn software and get an error message 'these files are NOT supported file type' [even tho' the program does and has burned other .FLAC files ALL the time with no problems]
so I even tried to convert them to .mp3 @320 kbps [which does burn to CDR but the audio is ALL like crackly / distorted and scratchy sounding?? / what am I doing wrong and/or what is wrong with these FLAC files??
when I just play them on my computer they sound fine
I have had no problems burning FLAC files to CDR>real audio with this program before is anyone else having problems like this???

I think it's mentioned in the show thread, but just in case, here goes. The flac set is fine. But it is a hi resolution file set (24 bit/ 48KHz) which, while fine for an audio DVD, it won't play on a CD, as CDs use 16bit/ 44.1KHz resolution files. Even if you compress them into 320mps mp3s, the sample rate is still 48KHz which is why you're getting a bunch of crackly noise.. Never used Roxio Creator before, so not sure if it's capable to downsample the file set for a CD. There are a couple of ways around it though, but you may need to convert them to wav files first. If you have itunes, set your import setting to wav with the custom settings at "sample rate 44,100 Hz" & "sample size 16 bit" Drag your newly converted wavs to itunes, highlight them, right click & select "create wav version". itunes will basically make a 16bit version which you can pretty much burn to disc straight out of itunes. Alternatively, you can use those files with your Roxio software. Whichever's more comfortable for you. You can always delete the file sets off your HDD when you've done, so as to reclaim storage space. Bottom line is you need to downsample the files for a playable CD. Alternatively, & if your DVD player is plumbed into your hi fi system, you can make an audio only DVD using LPLEX. That way, you'll be able to enjoy the hi res files without having to mess about downsampling. Added bonus there is that they'll all fit on the one disc too Looks really tricky, but once you've read the instructions, it's surprisingly easy. & if you want to play them on your system without any faffing around, either stream them from your computer (if your AV amp is able) or whack 'em on a pen drive & jab that into your AV amp (if it supports it).
Just stick them on a USB Stick, or, if like me - you have a shiny new Astell & Kern Digital Audio Player, load that up, plug in the AKG's sit in the dark and grin. I see you bought dBpoweramp, that should burn the hi res files to CD, if not, use the converter to downsample then burn to CD.
