well i know aif files created with itunes work in foobar. are you using a 3rd party tool to create these files? perhaps itunes can handle them ok but foobar can't? if you have a sample shorter than 30 seconds in length, you can upload it for someone to check (hopefully someone on the dev team if they read this topic)

The difference is that a third-party tool might write the file in a slightly different way, causing foobar2000 to stumble when trying to decode it. The goal is to find the exact cause for the error, hence the request for a test file that causes the error.

AIFF is just a container format, not necessarily carry big endian linear PCM in it. Support for codecs other than linear PCM will naturally vary with players. Same situation as WAV, AVI or something.
AFAIK, iTunes will play IMA4 in AIFF but fb2k does not.

If you can, please email a sample problematic file to webmaster@foobar2000.org.
Thanks.
