Hot to repair corrupted flac file (missing header)
« on: June 18, 2020, 04:28:00 AM »
Hi to all,
I had a problem with one of my hard drive. So I send it to a specialized firm and then recover the files to another hdd.
Now I have all the files, but the flac files doesn't playback on a music player.
I can open, and listen without problem with audio software Amadeus Pro (not in Soundforge, Adobe Audition, Audacity).
So if I open the track with Amadeus Pro and then I select "save as" and I make a new flac file, the file is 100% good and I can open with music player.
The question is:
Is there a software (mac or win) that can repair the header of flac files? Is there another way to fix it?
Please let me know.
Many thanks to all.

theres a few tools to correct wav headers

flac im not sure.

you can try opening it in soundforge in RAW mode

you need to specify bit depth sample rate, and a big/little endian header

Try TLH's re-encode flac files function.

That should write a new FLAC header.  Decoding to WAV and encoding to FLAC again does the same, just takes extra steps.

Yes to Trader's Little Helper!

That tool has been a real asset over the years, especially in fixing audio files that I've received from some record labels, whom I've subscribed to... sadly, a lot of them just don't seem to really have their extraction / conversion processes sorted, as I'm constantly either repairing sector boundaries, removing RIFF chunks, or rebuilding headers. TLH has yet to let me down with these types of issues; and it really doesn't require much of a learning curve to work with. Good luck!!
