what does the log output look like with d_source enabled?

thanks. Well, good news is that its still recognising the AAC and seems to be
starting playback properly. bad news is that its immediately stopping, and
without showing how in this log. Did you run this command-line or did you grab
the log from the web page?

if you look in that log, where it shows the command line for conversion:
"C:\Documents and Settings\Neil\My Documents\My Music\iTunes\iTunes
Music\10,000 Maniacs\Love Among The Ruins\01 Rainy Day.m4a" |
"C:\PROGRA~1\SLIMSE~1\server\Bin\lame.exe" --resample 44100 --silent -q "" -b
320 -r - - |

what happens if you try to use this command line directly at a DOS prompt? I'm
expecting some sort of error from mov123.exe. to simplify, you can even try it
without the last half (the lame.exe part from | to |)
