I feel like I'm doing something really stupid, but I can't seem to get my 3312CI to read flac files off my thumb drive. The thumb drive is 16 GB, in FAT32 format. MP3s will play flawlessly off of the thumb drive. FLAC files on the same thumb drive are recognized by the 3312 but when I try to select them/play them, a "File format error" appears.

I have been googling and troubleshooting... What's the obvious thing I'm missing here? confused.gif

Thanks,
FS

If you formatted the thumb drive using the "Quick Format only" method, that has been known to cause issues rather than doing the full format.

I did a full format and it was just a day ago. Does it matter I used windows or OSX to format in fat32? Regular MP3 files play without issue. It is only flac files that cause issues.

Thanks

Not sure but if you used OSX, then try using Windows.

I actually used Windows XP SP1 to format (and it was a full format). But why would the MP3 files work and not the flac files?

I will try to format using OSX this time...

Are the MP3 stereo or multi channel files? And the FLAC?

I'm an idiot. I have both Windows and OSX computers in the house--when OSX access files, sometimes it makes "._artist-song-etc-etc.flac" hidden files (something for the OSX filesystem) and I was trying to play those files instead of the real flac files--you have to scroll down the screen to see the real files. redface.gif

Well, I hope this may help someone else in the future...
