    Red face FLAC no results but mpe and wav results

    Hello everybody,
    has anybody got a clue why ripping CDs doesn't lead to any proper results? I can see title etc. However, only 1.700 KB is too small for a file, isn't it? Furthermore, I'm told that "length" of the title is 0.
    MP3 and WAV work nicely but I bought poweramp exactly to rip all my CDs into FLAC easily. It works with "Format Factory" , but I guess poweramp is qualitatively better and can actually be handled even more conveniently. Apart from that I would certainly like to make use of what I paid for

    Frankly, Im not really into computing and I hope I might just have failed to see some tiny detail ...
    I would be very happy to receive some help !!!

    When you try to rip to FLAC, what does the ripping log report. Paste the log contents into a reply and that may give us some clues.

    By the way:
    If only I knew what ripping log is / where to find it. I pressed “Copy info to Clipboard” when “dB poweramp CD Ripper: Information”-window appeared. The info-window cannot be copied. “View current error and information logs” leads to the same window and can equally not be copied.
    Thanks so far anyway. I’m dead tired …

    no problem. Just go to "registration retrieval" and have your old order number from email receipt available. You can reinstall on your new computer.

    note: the FLAC problem is only on some computer chipsets. I don't have any problems with my computers with the new FLAC.

    Are the FLAC codec developers aware of this problem and are they doing anything about it? I don't like the idea of being locked out of future dBpoweramp developments.
