Music file errors
« on: August 10, 2018, 03:03:10 PM »
I am currently experiencing errors on some of the songs on each album.
I never had the problem before, but the past few weeks it started telling me that from each album between 1 to 4 songs are corrupt and cannot be played.
It does not matter what software I use for playback, Foobar, Windows media player, PowerDVD 12 etc.

What can the problem be?

Seems like the hard disk is failing.  I hope you've got a backup.

You might have some corruption on that hard drive.

Suggest copy the entire album to another storage device, like a USB stick and play it from there.

You might as well check the drive for integrity while you are about it

After copying, test the flac files using http://www.vuplayer.com/other.php

I have done Error Checking in windows but it says all is good.
Is there other software that can check this (freeware).
Thanks
