Hello,

I just purchased dBpoweramp ver 15.1 and started a batch conversion of my flac files to aac.
Some of the files have track titles with swedish letters, but the batch conversion for some reason do not manage to keep the swedish letters.
Is it a bug in the software or did I miss a setting somewere?
I am on a Swedish Windows 8.1 PC by the way.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hmm, this is strange. I just tried to convert another album with tracks including swedish letter and it worked fine.

The album that failed had 5 tracks with swedish letters and they all failed.
One exampel below:
File name before conversion: "04 För vad det kan va' värt.flac"
File name after conversion: "04 For Vad Det Kan Va' Vart.m4a"

I solved the problem myself!
Just realised that the track titles in some of the albums was not the same as the original file names.
For some reason the track titles did not have the swedish letter as was used in the file name.
Case closed.
