    Program to verify Music files?

    Are there any programs that can verify music files for good, playable files?

    I have years of music files in my library and it seems I have not only duplicates, but also bad unplayable files. I get error messages when I try and load SansDisk players and a old Ipod.

    I imagine, and so I have found, that many of the bad files date back to the days when I used Itunes (before I realized the damage it does to music files) and the DRM issues. I did try and rip the drm off the files, but seems to have been hit or miss with success.

    Thought there might be a program I can run all the files through that will identify the bad files and allow me to only delete them.

    Thanks

    Hi, this thread may have some relevant info for you. Seems like they recommend mp3diags. No experience myself, though.
