    Please enable the debug log (dBpoweramp Configuration), then start CD Ripper and rip one track, close CD ripper and post the log (which will show in notepad) here please.

    I discovered this error occurs when the "Write metadata file" plugin is added to the DSP tab (options left blank). If I remove it again the error disappears. Debug log below:

    I wonder if this isn't the same problem I am having with the MultiEncoder. I'm going to try removing the "write metadata file" DSP and will let you know what I find.

    Apparently that was the source of my problems too. Without the "Write metadata file" DSP it works fine.

    Hi

    I have same problem at 2021.12.09. :D R17.4!!!!
    I want to use the program in Multi Encoder mode - CUE Single File Image with Write Metadata File and Playlist Writer DSP.
    When the Write Meta Data DSP add to the DSP list, I got File does not exist in C:\User\Music folder.
    I delete the Write Metadata from the DSP list, the grab finished correctly... WOW.
    I also have File does not exist error..., when I want to make a Rip at One.....
    Other interesting thing, the M3u list is created in the User\Music folder, but I set it to the Write to Same folder as first track.

    It is not possible to use these group of encoders or dsps together.
