I have a file SACD iso and I want to convert this ISO to individual FLAC files.
Download flac binaries and copy flac.exe to foobar2000 folder. Then right click - Convert - ...
HiFoobar displays and plays each file inside SACD ISO file.
Have you even tried it yourself
or are you just being funny?
The only conversions that work for me are to WAV64 or WAVPACK.
I suppose that you want to create disc image.
Anyway, here is modified FLAC encoder (thanks to Case): http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....st&p=725304
More likely a leak in whichever component is decoding the SACD files.

Real time playback is much less intensive. Don't you think?
After using the modded flac to convert some 24/88/5.1 tracks, I have to report that there's a memory leak either in the patched flac.exe or in the foobar converter. After approx. 6 files, foobar had taken all remaining memory (ca. 2.2GB) and then crashed.
While the FLAC fix posted in this forum will allow you to use foobar to convert an SACD iso to individual FLAC files, this method will leave in the the ultrasonic noise inherent to the DSD format (all SACD players include a low pass filter to correct this problem). I confirmed this myself by comparing files converted with foobar with files converted with Saracon. There is a tremendous amount of noise in the 25khz to 80khz band that would drown out any actual music that might happen to be in that range.
Use the option "Installable FIR" at 30 or 40khz. This takes care of high-frequency noise and incidentally is the best sounding decoder (IMHO, of course).
