FLAC File Help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello - I am new to the forum, great to be here!

 

I've been searching everywhere for an answer to my problem, so far without results, so I hope someone can help me out here.

 

I'm enjoying downloading FLAC audio files of my favorite albums, but have run into a frustrating problem. When I download a typical 10-song album, the uploader has stored it in at least two parts, and after I extract the files I notice that the fifth or sixth track has been split and broken -- almost without exception. This makes the file unplayable and thus worthless, and I haven't found a way of joining the two pieces, as they cannot be read by any of my media players. Is everyone one else having this problem with multi-part FLAC downloads? It's a shame to not be able to have a complete album (in ONE PART - is that possible?), which dedicated audiophiles have taken so much time and effort into ripping, documenting, and uploading for my enjoyment. Thanks in advance!

How are you extracting them?

I'm using a program called 7-Zip 4.57 to extract.

7zip should automatically join multi part files. Try selecting all the parts of the download, right click, extract files.
