File transcoding for removable devices sometimes fails with 'internal data stream error'

Bug Description

Binary package hint: rhythmbox

Attempting to transfer certain flac files to a removable media device fails with 'internal data stream error' messages. Additionally, a 0 byte file is left on the device. Attempting to transfer the file again just results in an overwrite prompt (for that first attempt) and fails out again. Rhythmbox can play the file, just not transfer it to the device.

Expected behavior: Transcoding and transfer of file to complete successfully. If error, do not transfer incomplete (or in this case 0 byte) files to device.
