Hello All,

I am using "Control Mac" to import my audio files into Sooloos. I have currently imported around 150 audio files (either ripped CDs or downloaded Studio Master files (24/96) with no problem, however I have at least 50 files I cannot import, and I get a message in red saying for example:-

Failed to decode Media File: 01-01-Diana_Krall-Where_Or_When-SMR.m4a

Any advise would be most welcome, also How can you Edit or Remove previously imported files within Soolos.

Kind regards,

Simon Clifford-Smith

They may have DRM. Where did you buy them?

You can burn them to a CD in iTunes then rerip to get rid of the DRM tags.


Sooloos, Roon, G series (with LPS upgrade), 800 series (with LPS upgrade), HD621, AC200, Prime and PS, DSPs old and new.

Purdeys, Moke, Leica, 'Blad. Only the best.

Hello dpstjp,

Many thanks for your help.

I don't think the files are DRM as I bought them from either Chandos, Linn or Qobuz, but how can I confirm for sure. I have no problems importing the same files into a trial version of Roon.

Kind regards,

Simon

Are they mixed resolution?


Never pass up a good chance to shut up!

Hello Ratbert,

Thanks for your help,

They are all either MP4 or FLAC files, no mixed formats etc.

Kind regards,
Simon
