    Mac version (R15) issues with converting to MP3 using source folder

    For some reason it sees the full file path as a folder.

    So e.g.

    /Volume/Blah blah/MP3/xxx.flac

    What it tries to do is writing to:

    /Volume/Blah blah/MP3/xxx.flac/xxx.mp3

    of course that directory doesn't exist, so it fails.

    When I tell it write the converted file(s) to a different directory it works ok.

    What naming value are you using?

    I see this in the error log:

    So the files are <track no> - <Title>.flac

    I would expect that the files end up in:

    /Volumes/My Book Thunderbolt Duo/My Shared/John Lennon - 24Bit Collection FLAC/1971-Imagine/

    but as I mentioned it sees the original file name as a directory/folder name.

    I hope this helps.

    On the options page in dBpoweramp you have which option selected?

    'To Folder'

    or

    'Dynamic'

    I tried to use 'Original Folder' (=> fails), Folder (= works ok) and Dynamic (= works ok).

    I find it handy if the resulting converted files end up in the same folder as the sources, so that's why I picked 'Original Folder'.

    I'm having the same issue when using "Original Folder". I just upgraded to this latest version yesterday. I didn't have the issue with the previous version. I'm using OSX R15 (1). The previous version also remembered what path or folder I was in on the batch converter but this latest version always resets back to a default state where all the folders are minimized.

    Same issue, it seems to be erroneously adding a folder name.


    Code:
    Error converting to Apple Lossless, '/Users/uername/Desktop/Disc 1/01. Blue Swede - Hooked On a Feeling.flac' to '/Users/username/Desktop/Disc 1/01. Blue Swede - Hooked On a Feeling.flac/01. Blue Swede - Hooked On a Feeling.m4a'
    
       Error unable to open File '/Users/username/Desktop/Disc 1/01. Blue Swede - Hooked On a Feeling.flac/01. Blue Swede - Hooked On a Feeling.m4a' for writing.  [BeginConversion]

    For now you can select dynamic as:

    [origpath]/[origfilename]

    which will do the same.

    I noticed you released 15.3 for Windows, can we expect an update to 15.3 soon (?) as well with this bug fixed ?

    Thanks for the workaround.
