Hello, I am trying to convert a sam file to bam and am getting the below error. Can you help me with how I can fix this?

Exception in thread "main" net.sf.samtools.SAMFormatException: Error parsing text SAM file. MAPQ should be 0 for unmapped read.; Line 30415

Edit: I ran ValidateSamFile and obtained the following output:

ValidateSamFile1_ks_18423.out

HISTOGRAM java.lang.String

Error Type Count
ERROR:INVALID_MAPPING_QUALITY 26
ERROR:MISSING_READ_GROUP 1
WARNING:RECORD_MISSING_READ_GROUP 1864385

What do I need to do to correct these errors in the sam file and how can I avoid these errors in the future?
