    Question Select all in batch converter?

    I have a music folder containg maybe 60 subfolder and many of those contain subs as well and then files. I wanted to batch convert. I did something and everything was selected. I converted everything. (normalize and redsample).

    Then I got a bunch of errors saying , for example: "Error converting to FLAC, 'C:\Users\admin\Music\rolling stones - Copy\rewind\Rewind - The Rolling Stones - Angie.flac' to 'C:\Users\admin\Music\rolling stones - Copy\rewind\Rewind - The Rolling Stones - Angie.flac' md5 did not match decoded data, file is corrupt."

    I was not trying to convert to Flac, I ripped as Flac. I have no idea what the hash is about.

    I loaded the files onto a thumb drive and stuffed it into my CD player and the tracks played just fine (for the Stones hat is) What gives?

    I tried to do the batch conveert on the entire library again but couold find no way to select all the folders and files. What happened?

    Clicking the [ ] next to a folder will select it for conversion.

    That error message states the conversion was to flac. FLAC contains a checksum so you know if the file has become corrupted, that file is corrupted.

    Thank you! that got me started in the right direction. It seems I need to select the root folder of the directory tree (any number of ways), then de-select it and then select it again and every folder in the tree will be selected.

    It seems if the application is calling a file corrupted but whatever the corruption is is inaudable then it can't be too corrupted. I have always considered a corrupted file one that flat out refuses to run.
