I'm in the process of backing up 500 CD-DA discs in FLAC format (using EAC). I ran a shell script to test (flac.exe -t; flac version 1.1.1) the 4000 FLAC files on my hard drive so far and found that flac.exe reported errors for 36 files. All errors are the same:

<filename>: *** Got error code 0:FLAC__STREAM_DECODER_ERROR_STATUS_LOST_SYNC

The files decompress fine, but now I'm not sure if I got the exact WAVs back. What does this error message mean, and how severe is the error? Moreover, is there a way to avoid it when compressing WAVs to FLAC in EAC?

How about using an ID3 editor to just chop the ID3v1 tag off? A dumb editor which doesn't recognize FLAC would be enough, in which case renaming the .flac to .mp3 will allow you to edit tags.

Alternatively, you could chop 128 bytes off from the end of the file for the same effect.

If someone would write a CLI Windows utility to remove any/all IDv1 and IDv2 tags from FLAC files that would be a great asset. Unfortunately too many tag editors and audio programs that convert/save to FLAC are using IDv1 or IDv2 tags today inside FLAC files. Some use both IDv tags and Vorbis tags, others just use IDv tags.

I have written to some developers about this and about the Spread FLAC campaign, but many audio apps authors appear nowadays to reside in China (about 80% of them which I have written to), and it seems they don't know much about the FLAC format, let alone about the need to use Vorbis style tags inside FLAC files. Maybe Josh should publish the FLAC developer docs in Chinese smile.gif

It wouldn't hurt, Josh, to put a real emphasis on your site, in your docs and in your program code comments for developers to use Vorbis tags only and to stay away from using IDv1 or IDv2 tags inside FLAC files that their programs edit or create, as many developers are so used to the MP3 tagging formats. Just my 2 cents.
