Copy file to Windows Phone, disable autoconversion dialog?

    Copy file to Windows Phone, disable autoconversion dialog?


    When I use Explorer on Windows 8.1 to copy multiple FLAC files to a folder on the SD card of my Nokia Lumia 625 (running on Windows Phone 8.1) via USB, a dialog window pops up in Explorer, asking me to choose between converting and just copying. If I choose to just copy, a progress bar appears, and it always gets stuck at the end of the first file transfer so I have to cancel or close the progress window, and, as a result, only the first file is transferred. If I copy a single FLAC file instead of multiple ones, the same thing happens at the end of the file transfer. So I am forced to copy the files one at a time, and I have to close the popup window for each of them. Is there any way to solve this?

    My 8.1 Lumia 928 doesn't prompt for file conversion. Going from Windows 8 Explorer, it just warns that it may not be compatible and then gives you the option to bail out of the copy. Maybe the phone app you are using to play FLAC files is giving you the prompt to convert and then has a problem with them.

    Which app are you using to play FLAC files on your phone?

    The solution that worked:

    Disable LAV Splitter in Codec Tweak Tool, it's under Codec and Filter Management | DirectShow (x64).

Hi there, I was watching a demo of the Windows 8 metro-style file picker dialog, and one thought came into my mind: does Metro has drag/drop and copy/paste functionality with regards to files? Would be much more efficient than the file picker dialog. I always try to avoid these! Regards, Carl
