    Hi everyone I have a great challenge for audio experts.
    I`ve asked abaout this before, but I still have the same problem.
    My problem is: I want to convert thousands of files from DDP format to MP3 .
    Since no one seems to have the solution on this one I will try a different strategy this time....:eek:)
    I have 1 file in this DDP format. The size is only 305 kb.
    So if you want to try to help me, you just give me a hint, and I can send the file to you.

    I will name one of the stars in the univers after the person who can help me on this one.

    So take the challenge all of you who wants to life forever i our univers..:eek:)

    This DDP format, is it the digital master, like in a studio mix tape, or something else?

    DDP file sets are an error–protected wrapper format specifically designed for reliable optical disc replication. DDP or Disc Description Protocol is the industry standard method for delivering all of the data and metadata needed for disc replication to a “pressing plant.” Unlike audio CDs, DDP file sets contain error–protected audio data plus all ancillary metadata or, “data about the data.”

    DDP file sets, when used for replication, avoid potential errors that can crop up between the time you create a replication master and the moment that a “glass master” is created during replication. CD-DA discs, or audio CDs, do not protect the audio data from errors since they assume that the CD player will hide or “conceal” any errors during playback. This situation leads to errors in replication when recordable CDs, formatted as Red Book audio discs, are used as replication masters.
