Some files 'skipped' as corrupt - but don't appear to be?


Occasionally when adding new albums to the library, Roon does not add the whole album. 1 or more files are ‘skipped’ and in the skipped files view, these show as ‘corrupt’.


  • they play without issue (on VLC for example)
  • their metadata tags all look fine.

What might be causing Roon to believe they are corrupt?

Many thanks

Hi @Damian_Boys,

Sometimes this issue can occur due to corrupt header files, can you please try to run the files with the issue through an audio file converter? Even if you select it to convert to the same format, it may fix issues with the file headers.

Thanks for the suggestion- I’ll give that a go!
