Ariko said...

The real problem with CD 1 is that the file 12 is corrupted !
However, thanks !

Ariko said...

Well... I tried again... Renamed files to obtain short names...
Nothing to do : file 12 is corrupted :-(

Smith said...

Yeah, track 12 is corrupted. pls fix this, Thanks

Blackbird said...

I'm sorry guys, the disk must somehow be faulty, it ends abruptly in no. 12

Ariko said...

I was scared about that !
Anyway, thanks !

In that case you could rip and then upload the only track 12 of CD1? Thanks in advance

Anonymous said...

So the problem is still unsolved?

crab9 said...

I wish I'd read these comments before re-downloading Disc 1 and putting effort into resolving Track 12. Anyway, I'm very grateful, nonetheless. And, by the way, everyone, there's an mp3 version available at http://zzzyvasmusicroom.blogspot.com/search/label/Massenet, so you can fill in the missing track from that. Nice blog too, Blackbird. Many thanks.

Dear Blackbird you could try to fix the track 12 of CD 1 of Werther, I hope not to be demanding.
This opera is very beautiful and a part that is missing is a disgrace.
Please try if you would greatly appreciate it.
See you soon.

i suggest that you should put something like "not completed " on top of this post as a warning for someone who come late. Like me.
