View Full Version : Fileset not recognized - HELP?

Hi all

I tried to upload a FLAC fileset that was shared over mediafire (via the TRC) of Todd Rundgren's Utopia. I decoded and burned discs form the files, they are confirmed good files. Then I created a torrent to share here.
That's where the problem occurred. When I seeded the torrent, the fileset showed as being 2.3 kb; I think only the text (info) file and the ffp file were recognized. I figured I'd done it wrong, had the torrent pulled and tried again. Sadly I keep getting the same result, the FLAC files aren't "recognized" in the fileset. I also notice that both utorrent and TLH create the torrent file WAY TOO FAST to be reading all the data.

I hope I've accurately described the problem, and that one of you can help me understand what's happening. Is there tag info missing, or too much info added to the files. I await your wisdom. And, as always, thanks for the music!

Are the flac files and text files in the same folder?

Yes, the torrent file points to the folder containing the FLACS, info and ffp files.

Odd. Is it only this file set that is affected? Are the files protected by some permission rights, locked in any way? If you can't check/change file permissions -

You could try:

1) creating a ffp file of the original flac set.
2) decode the flac set to wavs in another folder
3) encode the resulting wavs to a new flac set.
4) check ffp file against the new file set, if identical, try creating your torrent file.

This bit is probably total b*llocks.
