Thread: Error converting to FLAC

  1. #1

    Error converting to FLAC

    When ripping CDs some tracks are not converted to FLAC. The error message states "Unable to tag file..." There is a *._ file being created for those tracks that is sized similarly to the successfully created FLAC files for other tracks, so it appears the data is all there. Can these files be converted into FLAC files or is re-ripping the only option?

    It means something on your system is accessing the files and blocking dBpoweramp from tagging, then renaming to flac. It is most likely security software.

    OK. So if I disable the computer's security software, is there anything that can be done with these existing *._ files to complete their conversion to FLAC using dbpoweramp or another utility?

    It would be easier to re-rip as these files are not tagged, the time taken to add id tags would be longer than putting the disc in and clicking rip.
