Forgive me for appearing to monopolize the Help forum, but I'm new to Max and still trying to find my sea legs. I'm a quick study, though, so thanks for your patience.

In converting flac files to ALAC for installation in iTunes, some files fail to convert and I get the following alert:

"An error occurred while importing the file..." and then, "Sample size not supported"

I tried changing the format output to AIFF to see if that helped, but got the same failure. Any ideas, or can I reasonably assume the FLAC is somehow corrupted?

I've got the same issue. I suspect it has to do with the file's size. The one I'm having an issue with is 43mb. Anyone able to give us fellows a clue?

What output format have you set up, and what format is the input file? If AIFF/WAV, what bit depth and sample rate is it?

It turns out I had a corrupted FLAC file. Thanks for your speedy feedback though.
