Noob trying to work FLAC Metadata problem with Firefly

Tue Sep 02, 2008 6:10 pm

After reading several posts here, I can't find one that really matches my problem. I apologize if the solution is obvious and welcome the help:

I'm running Win2K and have converted my whole CD Collection to FLAC using Dbpoweramp. I have the Roku Soundbridge and am using Firefly to talk to it. From what I've gathered from reading the posts, Firefly keeps crashing due to pictures in the metadata that is encapsulated in the FLAC files. I've found when I try to play these files, Firefly crashes immediately. Also, I've noticed the Log file (attached) has issues with different files, but I'm not sure why. Any help on how to proceed to fix my files or Firefly so I remain crash free would be a godsend.

Thanks. I've attached my Log file below:

Hi Stewart,
I've had the same problem;
Try to rename your FLAC files; the strange characters you can see in your log files are due to accented (or others strange) characters
Hope it can helps...
Ciao
