FLAC files and iTunes
Head-Fi's Best Sellers
Are you sure you have them converted properly? My own ALAC files are playing just fine on iTunes.
Right click the file in iTunes and click on Get Info. Does it say Apple Lossless under the file format?
On a side note, can iTunes convert from FLAC to ALAC?
So the file extension is .alac? If so, try changing them to .m4a and see if you can drag them into iTunes.
I don't think that will work as iTunes won't know how to decode the file given it's still encoded as a FLAC file but labeled as an .m4a.
My own ALAC files are all .m4a. According to the wiki page and several other sites ALAC files should be .m4a
I tried renaming several of my ALAC files to .alac and I can't drag them into iTunes as well. .m4a worked fine though.
