i'm new to this whole music trading/downloading thing so any other programs/advice you have to offer would be most appreciated.

thanks in advance for help.

Since it had an error decoding with FLAC frontend something is wrong with your files. Seeing as you used BitTorrent, is it possible you didn't get a complete downloaded?

Redownload.

Or just reopen the torrent and let it really finish the download. Some BT clients report 100% download before it's actually 100% ready. You might have to wait for it to say "finished", "completed" or something like that.
