    Smile 24/96 flac conversion problem

    I have a handful of 24/96 ALAC files that I recently converted to flac using dbPA.. however flac tester shows all these tracks as erroneous.

    Example
    D:\FLAC\David Bowie\The Rise And Fall Of Ziggy Stardust\01 Five Years.flac...FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_UNPARSEABLE_STRE AM
    1 files, 1 errors [1]

    The files still play in foobar and poweramp on my phone just fine.

    My question is, are these files fine and just failing MD5 because reasons? Or should I have decoded ALAC to WAV before recoding to flac?

    Thanks in advance for any help

    It is not an md5 error, but some fundamental read error, however if the files decode in other programs it suggests the files are ok, perhaps the error is in the flac tester program.

    Thanks for reply ... They decode just fine. I was curious and ripped a few cds in itunes(ALAC 16/44.1) then used db to transcode to flac... all came back no error.. It seems only 24bit return this error. Like you suggest, may be tester..

    I am going to decode the ALAC to wave and recode to flac and see what happens. I will check for flac ui update to tester. As well I have access to original 24bit flac that the alac were made from. If interested I can post my results from alac-wav-flac conversion as well as test results from original source...
