Re: flac files

flac files are audio, not video. You need to convert them to wav and then burn them. Traders Little Helper will convert them to wave for you. You can also get foobar and it will convert and burn for you.

Re: flac files

Yeah, if you have the plugins you can just drop in the flac files and it will convert and burn for you all with the press of a button. (Well, that's what Five told me.)

Re: flac files

If it says 'flac' next to it, it's NOT a film, it's audio. Everything on this site is labeled pretty well. What makes you think it's a video?

Re: flac files

But, what are the extensions on the files? Do they all say '.flac' on the end? If so, they are NOT video files, they are audio files and can be converted to wav using Traders Little Helper or Flac Frontend.

Re: flac files

There is also a plugin for nero called Nero Mega Pack v1.1 you can D/L it from this location: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Multime...gin-Pack.shtml

The plugin will do shn, flac, ape, etc conversions.


hope that helps.

Re: flac files

i'm with you james

so to make this easier--what specific torrent are you talkin about [include a link to the thread]...as Lynne has said numerous times already, if they are flac files, then they're audio and NOT movie/film/DVD files
