CD Ripper: Cannot Get Meta Data From AMG?

Assuming your AMG access has not expired (check using dBpoweramp Configuration) certain programs can intefere with the data traffic from AMG.

R12: Kaspersky: Go into Settings, Trusted Zone, Trusted Applications and then add. Browse to C:\Program Files\Illustrate\dBpoweramp\CDGrab.exe (assuming normal install path) or select from "Applications list" and then select "Do not scan network traffic".
Note: In the new version of Kaspersky, you must go into Settings --> Threats and Exclusions --> Trusted Zone --> Trusted Applications.

R13: Should not be effected by Kaspersky.

Edit: Also, check for Parental Control Software, as one user enabled this feature in BitDefender and lost access to AMG.
Edit2: Also, try disabling the "Privacy Control" in BitDefender, as one user reported AMG access would only work with it off.

I had the same problem as the OP, and joined here for he purpose of solving it. It's all fixed, and I can now use AMG.

The problem is proxy servers. Specifically, proxy servers that alter headers. My proxy is the Squid Proxy Cache, which I use to cache internet pages. Proxies are also used to anonymize internet access, and I think some security programs use them (probably Kapersky and Norton from looking around).

The solution is to whitelist AMG's servers in the proxy software, which tells the proxy to just pass that data through, without caching it or altering it. This must be done on their range of IP address, which, in Squid-ready subnet notation, are:

Or, in human-readable form: thru thru

Yes, I'm sure that entire IP range from 1-255 isn't owned by AMG, but I didn't feel like searching and pecking each one, so I just unblocked the whole range. This got it working for me!

My proxy server, Squid, in combination with the Dansguardian content filter, is one of the proxies of choice for internet censoring by oppressive governments. I saw on Google that a lot of Australians were having the same problems as me. If the man is watching you, sorry, you probably can't get this to work unless there is a way to get that range of IP addresses unblocked. If you're like me, and run a proxy at home for internet privacy, this is the solution.

CD Rpper: Why is my SATA CD/DVD optical drive not detected or not working properly?

Some SATA optical drives only work under the "Windows Interal" communication mode. To do this, click the Options button in the CD ripper and scroll down to the CD ROM section. Change "Communication" from "SCSI Pass Through (SPT)" to "Windows Internal".
Note that this will disable C2, FUA cache clear, reading and setting drive speed and reading the drive technical information.

When using DSP effects the output contains static noise

Under certain circumstances with R12.1 (bit depth of 32 bits and high frequency, live DSP effects used with a non-live DSP effect, such as volume normalize) causes the output to have chunks of static noise every 1/4 of a second, repeating throughout the file.

This bug has been fixed in R12.2

When Running on a Limited Account

...no trials (AMG / Reference / Power Pack) are activated. Advanced COdec / Tagging options are not used.

When Windows elevates a program to administrator, such as dBpoweramp Configuration, when elevated it runs in an administrator user account, not the limited account. The The settings saved by configuration are saved in to the admin account.

Work around: Change the limited account to Administrator, run dBpoweramp Configuration, then change back.

Q: I get the error "Error running CoreConverter" whenever I try to convert any files. That is the entire error message.

A: If you are using the Kerio Personal Firewall, it can keep "musicconverter.exe" from running "coreconverter.exe". Adjust your firewall settings and try again.
