FS#7886 - Some FLACs don't play on iPod 5G

I encoded several flacs on a Windows box using the latest CDex, which in turn relies on libFLAC.dll, at compression-level 8. Nine out of ten play fine, but one is always skipped on my 80GB iPod video. If I attempt to add it to a playlist, I see (1) [ERR] (filename) in playlist.

If it would be helpful, I could provide a copy of the FLAC file in question for analysis directly to a developer.

Reason for closing:  Not a Bug

At the playlist level, this is not FLAC specific. Sounds like a bad filename, perhaps illegal characters or too many characters.
What’s the name of the file? Have you tried renaming it?

Filename is joni_mitchell_-_shine_-_01_-_one_week_last_summer.flac.

I tried renaming to ‘test.flac’ and it still doesn’t work – although I noticed now it says “no file” when it gets to that track. (The track is fine on the computer).

I also noticed another track from the same album only plays four or five seconds and then reports “codec failure” and skips to the next track.

False alarm. Deleting the file and copying it over again fixed the problem. I don’t really know what it caused it, but it does not seem to be a codec problem, so I will close this report.
