Unable to convert FLAC to MP3

I am also having trouble converting FLAC to MP3 with format converter.
"Transcoding Error... cannot open converter"
Seems to happen with high res files 24/96 I bought from HD Tracks?
Is format converter not able to handle the high res files?

Sorry if this has been answered I tried a search...

Hi PaulieD,

Do you have "Allow 24bit" enabled in the General Preferences Playback options?

Just curious, why do you want to degrade your songs by going from flac (loss-less) to mp3 (lossy)?
