I am having problems converting RM files to OGG, after a few minutes during conversion I get a pop-up Codec Error". I can convert these RM files just fine to MP3 and then to OGG (RM > MP3 > OGG). Why do I get Codec Error" when I convert RM to OGG?

The RM files are 20kbps, I want to convert to OGG 64kbps, Mono, 16kHz.

Sometimes the gap between the source file (your rm file) and your output file (the Ogg file) is just too much to accomplish in one step.
Two things you could try to keep things to a single transition:
Make sure you have Professional Frequency Conversion enabled (from the dMC Configuration Window, Start> All Programs> dBpowerAMP Music COnverter> Configuration> dMC Configuration);
Try the latest Ogg Codec (r12, available in the Beta Test section of these Forums).

You may also want to look at converting rm to wav and then to Ogg. Wav (compared to mp3) has the advantage of being lossless).

Best wishes,
Bill Mikkelsen

With reference to posts by Dirk in the Beta forum http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showpost.php?p=27645&postcount=9 and also http://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showpost.php?p=27703&postcount=11

I replaced the oggenc.exe file with the new one, and then renaming oggenc2.exe to oggenc.exe. Works now!

Thanks so much for the quick reply Bill.

i have downloaded the files required for the .dat conversion but it looks like there is something wrong. What is happening is that the output file goes really fast as if it was being forwarded. Accordingly, the total time also reduces from the original time. I ll appreciate all answers...
