Re: invalid argument?

for real now....decode the stuff to your desktop THEN drag all the files into iTunes....whatever titles each file has will remain. you can change the titles in iTunes if you like.

Stoli

It tells me this,

You cannot copy some of these items to the destination because their names are too long for the destination.Do you want to skip copying these items and continue copying the other items?

Re: invalid argument?

if the destination is the desktop then there shouldn't be an issue.....perhaps shorten the file names before decoding?

NO.

dig this:

if "Track1.flac" makes the file name (which includes the path) too long, you probably need to move your iTunes folder. Put it in the root or something.

Just move it and see if it works.

or don't.

Doesn't work. It's almost like the file won't open correctly to be moved or transfered. I can't even change the location name.

Re: invalid argument?

Restart the Mac.
Click on one of the flac files, rename it "ABC.flac" or anything short like that.
In the FINDER, Duplicate it using (command D) or menu FILE to Duplicate and drag the copy to the desktop.

Then open xACT and decode it to a wav or aiff on the desktop.

If that doesn't work download XLD which is something like xACT and try again.
