      USB audio and FLAC

      Hi guys,

      Just picked up my S90 T8 this week and here it comes some questions.

      From the manual, it said the system can play FLAC file off a USB drive, but when I try to put some FLAC file on it, it said file not supported.... Anyone have experience on this?

      Thank
      JC

      I've had no real issues with the FLAC format in my V90.

      Care to paste the MediaInfo from the FLAC file?

      I don't see anything there that would necessarily cause a compatibility issue.

      Mine are all encoded with libFLAC 1.2.1 (UTC 2007-09-17), however.

      I have play around with it yesterday and look like I have got it solved by removing the ID3 tag ...
