View Full Version : Apple Lossless?

I'm trying to send the text file that I got from debugging but it keeps
getting 'bounced'. I am absolutely useless at sorting out what it all means
and need some help. Is there a specific section that I can send that would
make it smaller so it does not get 'bounced'.

Thanks Again

look at the log, and find something that says "using command for conversion..."
a few lines before that to help see the contruction of the command, and a few
lines after to see the feedback from trying to play the song. As long as its
under 40k, you can post. You will also get a lot of compression on a log using
WinZip, since its text.
