Colorfly C3 Appreciation and Discussion Thread - Page 61

post #901 of 2167
My C3 arrived yesterday and after loading a few albums, I too am getting a file error when I try to play any of them. They were ripped to flac 16/44.1 using dbconverter. They worked when converted to mp3 320 but not when flac. Got me stuffed what I did wrong converting seemed straight forward enough. They work on my Samsung SII.

Any help would be great.

All 16-bit/44.1khz flac should work. Are you sure you have converted them all properly?

I'm pretty new to converting, I just selected the settings I wanted any settings I didn't understand I left alone. Perhaps I missed something there, but as in my edited post above they work on my galaxy SII. The installed music plays fine. Using internal memory.

It's different - the SII can handle anything even 24/192 and just outputs it at 16/44.1 while the C3 can output 24/48 wav and 16/48 flac but cannot handle stuff like downsampling or reducing the output bitrate so if you have 24-bit files you should convert them to either wav or flac withing the abovementioned limits. So make sure you don't have 24-bit flac files or that the sample rate isn't more than 48khz.

Ok, checked file info , all are 16 bit 48 or 44.1 khz. Maybe when I get home will convert to wav and see what happens. Can't think what else to try. Any special settings on dbconverter I should have selected which I may have missed? Sometimes I really hate modern technology. Where is my Walkman and cassette tapes? biggrin.gif

Well, then beats me. I remember than someone had issues with flac files too and had to rename them to a .fla extension and after that found a solution. Maybe try converting them with a different software. Yeah, cassette tapes were nice but I'm not sure I'm going back even though I still have two functional portable cassette players and one CD walkman player. I personally got tired of issues with converting software and nowadays just use the aimp3 player I use for playing music to convert the files I need

Will rip a CD using different software when I get home and see what happens. In the mean time Adele in Mp3 will have to do. Can't tell the difference with the dodgy iems I'm using at the moment anyway.

Cheers

LOL No need. Maybe if the mastering was better bit I honestly can't listen to Adele - she definitely needs to find someone else to master her albums, which is a shame coz I really like her songs.

OK, all sorted, phone said files were 16 bit 44.1, but now home and checked them on pc it says 24 bit flac so will convert them to wav and see how we go.

Did some mod's on that SMSL silver cable and now it is a lot more manageable, it has a subtle different sound than my other DIY cables, something hard to put a finger on... or it's just me and my old ears thinking it does. biggrin.gif

 

Just one more piece required to complete this puzzle...

As I can't add attachments here, If anyone wants the C3 manual in english, PM me with your email and I will send it to you. It's a PDF file 232KB in size. biggrin.gif

I can't find the site I got it from otherwise I would have just posted the link.

This may be simple, how do I tell the charge level/remaining battery life?

Thanks but the Engrish manual came with mine on the "Interal Memory". Others might want it though. biggrin.gif

Three little bars in the top right corner on a full charge.
