I have successfully converted my entire iTunes library (ALAC) to uncompressed FLAC, so that these audio files are OPPO compatible, via a USB external hard drive. It works! HOWEVER, The Mac OS creates an unwanted duplicate of each song file, with it's own prefix:
Example: if a folder containing an album has 10 songs, The FLAC songs are simply numbered 1 through 10.
BUT: in the same Album folder, , there are 10 more files, each with the unwanted mac prefixes:
Of course, these songs won't play on the OPPO anyway - it's just creating a LOT (exactly double, in fact) of uneccesary file names, and a major hassle to navigate directly to the individual FLAC-formatted song I really want to play.
I have tried products such as CLEAN MY DRIVE, which does eliminate these prefixes from my still photo files. However, it doesn't work on these audio files. I've got 3,000 real FLAC songs and another 3,000 "phantom" doulbes with is Mac-generated prefix.
DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO DO A BATCH-ELIMINATE OF ALL THESE UNWANTED MAC PREFIX FILES?
many thanks to anyone who can help!
