Description of Issue

I have some FLAC files that Roon is refusing to import, because it’s saying that they’re corrupt. However, I can decode/re-encode them with the FLAC CLI tool (version 1.3.3) without any issues. I’m not seeing anything terribly illuminating in the logs, either. It just has things like:

07/19 19:51:16 Warn: [storage] [directory] Failed to extract audio format from ‘/roon/sys/storage/mounts/Path/To/My/Music/YCJY_Games/Sea_Salt_OST_-_Deluxe_Edition/02-Our_Lord_of_the_Depths_FWV_86.flac’: CorruptFile

Is there anything more specific I can do to try to track down what the issue is with my files?

Hi @Chris_Gelatt,
I can’t help in tracking down the root cause, however, when I had this on a handful or two of tracks I used dBpowerAmp to transconvert them from FLAC to FLAC. After that Roon was happy with the files.
