Thread: Conversion Errors

    Conversion Errors

    I recently used Batch Ripper to encode ~2000 CDs to AIFF then attempted to convert those files to Apple Lossless using the Batch Converter. Of the 26,770 AIFF files, only 11,360 successfully converted. The AIFF files are stored on one external hard drive (K and the conversions were sent to another external hard drive (J.

    The error messages are of three types:

    Error converting to Apple Lossless, 'K:\MUSIC FILES\Aaron Weinstein\A Handful Of Stars\._01 After You've Gone.m4a' to 'J:\New Folder\_01 After You've Gone.m4a'
    Unable to decode m4a file (is corrupt or not supported audio type).

    Error converting to Apple Lossless, 'K:\MUSIC FILES\Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers\_Unknown_\._3-01 Dat Dere.aif' to 'J:\New Folder\_3-01 Dat Dere.m4a'
    Error first chunk unknown: [clAIFFHandler::ScanFile]

    Error converting to Apple Lossless, 'K:\MUSIC FILES\Len_PC2\Duke Ellington & His Orchestra\All Star Road Band, Volume 1\14 Duke Ellington - I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good.aif' to 'J:\New Folder\14 Duke Ellington - I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good.m4a'
    Error unable to open File 'J:\New Folder\14 Duke Ellington - I Got It Bad and That Ain't Good.m4a' for writing. [clEncoder::BeginConversion]

    Why won't these files convert?

    Re: Conversion Errors

    see if anything can play the first 2 files you list.

    I think you might have HDD corruption.

    They play fine in iTunes.

    They play fine in WMP and VLC MP as well.

    Re: Conversion Errors

    I am under a time crunch to complete this project for a customer and the software is failing. Is there anything that can be done to fix this issue?

    Lets concentrate on this file, try converting it on its own to m4a, does it work?

    If not copy the file to C:\, does then try converting when on C:, if it still does not work, you can email this file to me:

    Re: Conversion Errors

    When I convert one file at a time, it works. The problems occur during the batch process.

    Also, after closer analysis, this problem is more complex.

    1) I continue to get these error messages. Of the files that show up as errors:
    a) some actually did convert - of those some seem intact yet others have obvious glitches
    b) others did not convert at all (i.e. there are no files for them)

    2) As I tested for these files, I noticed that many of the albums are missing tracks. So, I am missing hundreds maybe thousands of tracks from a variety of albums and only a small percentage of them showed up in the error report.

    Re: Conversion Errors

    You would have to copy the files off the system to another system, then try conversions on the 2nd system, it all points to something being wrong with the computer, or HDD.

    Re: Conversion Errors

    I tried your suggestion and I still get conversion errors. I copied the files accurately to a different drive. I tried a conversion on that drive and I am still missing 1446 songs out of 24075. The missing files are from a variety of albums - often just one or two songs are missing from each album.

    Re: Conversion Errors

    Try a different system, a different drive would not help if there was something running on the system interfering with dBpoweramp.

    Re: Conversion Errors

    Hi, Spoon;
    I wrote to you before in regards to a problem I'm having with the music converter. For some reason when I convert my MP3's down to wav files, the resulting wav file is 0 bytes in size. I was told that I needed to install the dsp effects for it to work right but even after doing so it's still giving me the same problem. I've used the converter before without any problems and it's just recently that it started doing this. I lost my computer to a mother board crash and now have a new acer aspire with 3 gigs of ram and windows 7 home premium. I just installed the program again and still have no luck getting it to convert properly. I'm currently using version 14.2 with the 15 day trial. Could that be causing my problems by allowing the converter to only convert so much before it stops working?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Re: do you know about that

    The trial has no limitations, run dbpoweramp config and enable the debug option on the music converter tab. Do one conversion and post the log file please.

    Here's the log from my converter, spoon. Any help would be great

    Re: do you know about that

    It is likely it is the ACM encoder which is not accepting the data, try a normal uncompressed wave file, if that works then try to match the output frequency set in the ACM encoder by using the Resample DSP effect.
