    Question Error converting: "FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_READ_METADATA"

    Ran a batch conversion from FLAC to Apple Lossless. Three files pitched the error message shown here. FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_READ_METADATA

    The files appear to have converted. I know the originals are fine (just listened to them...)

    Complete message copied from clipboard:

    It is an error reading the metadata block, it suggests the flac file was written incorrectly.

    Hmmm this thread is quite old... I will start a new thread...

    My experience: Edit tags (right click on selected flac-tracks) corrupts Flac-files!
    Found one workaround: do NOT add AlbumArt upon ripping. After ripping it's OK to add AlbumArt...

    Please can you explain how this corrupts flac files?

    I and many others are adding album art to flac files when ripping without a problem.

    ... I see the above has been repeated here: Edit AlbumArt-tag (remove-Add) results in corrupt files
