Thread: Inability to convert files in some sub-folders

  1. #1

    Post Inability to convert files in some sub-folders

    I did a batch conversion of about 7,500 WMA files, convertting them to Apple Lossless. THe original files are in subfiolders and sub-sub-folders, organised by period, compodser and sometime piece. It worked fine, except about 1700 files failed.

    The report on one failure states:

    Error converting to Windows Media Audio 10, 'D:\Concert Recordings\RECORDINGS\Early Romanticism\Weber, Carl Maria von\Opera and Choral\Der Freischutz - Vienna State Opera Chorus and Orchestra - Wilhelm Furtwangler - 26-07-1954 - Pickwick Classical Recording\CD1\09 Der Freischütz, opera in 3 acts, J. 277.wma' to 'D:\Concert Recordings\Conversions\09 Der Freischütz, opera in 3 acts, J. 277.wma'

    Thinking it was a software problem, I tried it using another program, but the same issue arose. That software stated in its error report that the system cannot find the path specified. THe file is in a sub-folder of a suib-folder. I thought that might be the difficuty, but it successfuilly converted other files in a sub-folder of a suib-folder.

    Should I change the folder settings on my computer?

    Re: Inability to convert files in some sub-folders

    The error is something is blocking dBpoweramp from reading the WMA files, it could be your security software which has sandboxed dBpoweramp. If you have security software as a test disable it then try to convert.

    Re: Inability to convert files in some sub-folders

    I just tried again.

    I disabled the Firewall on my Norton 360 software (after disconnecting the inbternet of course). I reran the convert sand the same thing happened:

    Error converting to Apple Lossless, 'D:\Concert Recordings\RECORDINGS\Music for Filing\Ripped CDs\Peter-Lukas Graf\Flute Concertos\Stamitz, Carl - Flute Concerto in G major - Peter-Lukas Graf, Zurcher Kammerorchester - Edmond de Stoutz - Brilliant Classics Recording\06.Rondo, allegro.Peter-Lukas Graf, Zurcher Kammerorchester - Edmond de Stoutz.wma' to 'D:\Concert Recordings\RECORDINGS\Music for Filing\Ripped CDs\Peter-Lukas Graf\Flute Concertos\Stamitz, Carl - Flute Concerto in G major - Peter-Lukas Graf, Zurcher Kammerorchester - Edmond de St\06.Rondo, allegro.Peter-Lukas Graf, Zurcher Kammerorchester .m4a'

    THat is one of 1410 errors.

    Any other ideas?

    You are exceeding Windows Explorer's maximum pathlength. Likely you will have trouble even renaming that file in Explorer (though you can easily rename one of the folders).

    Is that the reason that that the program cannot get access in order to convert?

    Sounds very plausible. You can simply test it: In the D:\Concert Recordings\RECORDINGS\Music for Filing\Ripped CDs folder, create a copy of the the Peter-Lukas Graf subfolder and rename it to a single character you don't use for anything else - like ^, ¨ , ¤, _, §, whatever. I'll call it ^.
    Go to ^. Rename the Flute Concertos to ^. Go to ^. Rename the Stamitz blah blah blah folder to ^. Finally, rename the wma to ^.wma. Now you should be within reach.

    Run again, and see if it converts.


    (Still I don't think it is a good idea to transcode WMA. WMA Lossless yes, lossies, no.)
