Recording Device: Philips LFH9600

More information:

Having previously successfully converted files from this device in the past, I received this error only with recent files. Investigating the differences between working and non-working files, I discovered that the device had reset its settings held in NVRAM and was tagging each file with a default set of proprietary information - Access Code, Company and Work Type.

The location of these settings conflicts with DSS_HEAD_OFFSET_ACODEC in dss.c at 0x2a4 - in particular, the location where the 'Company' tag is written to.

Comparing the hex for working and non-working files, this location is not used for the storage of codec information in files produced by this device.
