Joining Wav files with xACT (shntool)

Hey guys, sorry if this has been covered. I searched and couldn't find anything. I'm trying to join four wav files with shntool using xACT. I ripped the audio from a DVD using bbDEMUX. I converted the resulting .ac3 fles to wav with mAC3dec. I'm now trying to combine those files in xACT but I get an error which says:
Quote:
: shntool [join]: error: file '/Users/reece/Desktop/pfunk1978-11-06/pfunk1978-11-06d1t01.wav' has an inconsistent header
Any idea how to correct this problem or suggestions for another program? Thanks.

What does shntool->info say about the files ? Copy & paste it here.

Have you tried converting the WAVs to FLAC (w/xACT) and then joining them ?

Here is the info. I'm encoding to FLAC now. I'll let you know how that works.

Re: Joining Wav files with xACT (shntool)

You're going to have to find some way of making these compatible:

Code:
CD quality: no
cut on sector boundary: n/a
sector misalignment: n/a
long enough to be burned: n/a
and
Code:
inconsistent header: yes
With any luck conversion to FLAC *might* sort things but if it doesn't you could try opening the files with Audacity, Sound Studio, Amadeus, Peak etc and saving as WAV/AIFF.
