I am using slimserver 6.5.4 build 12568 (windows-en-cp1252) and Squeezebox firmware 81 on a windows XP box.

Program material ripped from CDs using Windows Media Player 11 and prior versions. Format .WMA best quality.

For some reason, most of my classical tracks will no longer play on the squeezebox (I get the following error message "Problem: Can't open file for: <name of file>.")

Spent an hour with tech support without finding a solution. I hae of course rescanned the liobrary several times and re-installed the Slimserver software - without solving this problem. As I have more that 2,000 classical tracks this is a major bummer.

Anybody out there with a suggestion?

In Server Settings, File Types, click of the WMA -> WMA (built-in) and make sure the WMA -> FLAC or WAV is checked.

If that worked, you ripped things using Microsoft's "WMAPro" codec.

You can enable d_source in server settings->debugging and check the
log (there is a link at the top of the debugging page, at the end of
the description text). The log should show a more detailed error
message if it is a "known" problem when trying to open the file.
