    Error unable to open File

    OK, so this error perplexed me for a while until I realized the naming in the "Multi Encoder" encoders seems to do something completely different.

    First of I am not using a network drive, just a local write on my disk. So here is what is breaking and was driving me crazy...

    When using Dynamic Naming in "Multi Encoder" with a "-" character for some reason it is changing the "-" character to a "/" character, this also occurs when the the track title has a "-" character or a "/". This is a fresh install with no settings tweaked, only after the struggling with this for a while did I try to tweak some things, like changing the "CD Ripper Options -> Meta Data & ID Tag Character /Word Replacement" and the "CD Ripper Options -> Filename Restricted Characters" options to try to prevent this. Attached are the two dialog screen shots, because seeing is believing, these are the settings I had to begin with, and the ones I set them back to. Changing these did not seem to have an effect on the above problem. Any text in the file name with the "-" character is being converted to "/", and also when a file name has the "/" character in it it is not being removed. I am using version: dMC-R16.2-Ref-Trial.

    I have verified this seems to be a problem ONLY with the naming used in the "Multi Encoder" when using the exact same naming convention as the regular encode (Literally copying and pasting it) it fails . I have only tested this for FLAC and MP3, but I suspect it is a Multi Encoder issue. Please verify you can recreate the problem.

    I can confirm this to be the case also. The issue has only started since updating to v16.2 and occurs only when using the Multi-Encoder rather than using a single encoder.

    I've posted this to a separate thread, but if it helps someone, here is my dynamic naming and the error message:

    Code:
    [IF!COMP]Artists\[artist]\[album]\[IFMULTI](Disc [disc])\[][track] - [title][][IFCOMP]Various\[album]\[IFMULTI](Disc [disc])\[][track] - [title][]
    Code:
    Error ripping to [Multi Encoder], 'Track 1' to 'F:\Whitesnake\1987 [20th Anniversary Collectors Edition]\01 Whitesnake - Still of the Night.IGNORE'
       Wave: Error unable to open File 'F:\Artists\Whitesnake\1987 [20th Anniversary Collectors Edition]\01 / Still of the Night.wav' for writing.  [clEncoder::BeginConversion]
       mp3 (Lame): Error unable to open File 'E:\Artists\Whitesnake\1987 [20th Anniversary Collectors Edition]\01 / Still of the Night.mp3' for writing.  [clEncoder::BeginConversion]

    Confirming same problem upon upgrading to R16.2 - File open errors when using "Multi Encoder":

    Re: Error unable to open File

    Strange I not get same error (trying Reference on 64 bit), even with your naming strings...

    Which version of dBpoweramp do you have? 64 or 32 bit?

    Yes, I am using 64-bit as well, on bare-metal Windows 10 machine (Not a VM).

    Re: Error unable to open File

    Try this exact test:

    take a flac file >> right click >> convert to >> multi-encoder

    Add just mp3 lame (any settings) and set the naming to [artist] - [tile]

    Write to a specified folder.

    What final name is used?

    Re: Error unable to open File

    OK, ran test as specified above, (I did change: "[artist] - [tile]" to "[artist] - [title]") and got the following error:

    Code:
    Error converting to [Multi Encoder], 'C:\Users\BitBuilder\Music\dbPowerAudio Rips\FLAC\Swans\The Burning World\03 Swans ~ Can't Find My Way Home.flac' to 'C:\Users\BitBuilder\Music\dbPowerAudio Rips\FLAC\Swans\The Burning World\03 Swans ~ Can't Find My Way Home.IGNORE'
       mp3 (Lame): Error unable to open File 'C:\Users\BitBuilder\Music\dbPowerAudio Rips\Swans / Can't Find My Way Home.mp3' for writing.  [clEncoder::BeginConversion]

    Re: Error unable to open File

    Note: Multi Encode seems to not be using the options I tried setting in the dialogs I mention in my first post above at all, as I get the following error when trying to rip a file with a ":" in the [album] as well. And that character should be replaced as well according to the replacements in the "CD Ripper Options -> Filename Restricted Characters" options.

    Code:
    Error ripping to [Multi Encoder], 'Track 9' to 'C:\Users\BitBuilder\Music\dbPowerAudio Rips\Pixies\Wave of Mutilation; Best of Pixies\09 Pixies - Monkey Gone to Heaven.IGNORE'
       FLAC: Error unable to open File 'C:\Users\BitBuilder\Music\dbPowerAudio Rips\FLAC\Pixies\Wave of Mutilation: Best of Pixies\09 Pixies ~ Monkey Gone to Heaven.flac' for writing.  [clEncoder::BeginConversion]
       mp3 (Lame): Error unable to open File 'C:\Users\BitBuilder\Music\dbPowerAudio Rips\MP3\Pixies\Wave of Mutilation: Best of Pixies\09 Pixies ~ Monkey Gone to Heaven.mp3' for writing.  [clEncoder::BeginConversion]
    P.S. Note as a sloppy fix I am using tilde "~" character as a separator instead of "-", but that is only a workaround for user set naming strings, not track data, that needs to be replaced.

    Re: Error unable to open File

    It does not use the one in CD Ripper rather:

    dBpoweramp Control Center >> Advanced Settings

    Filename Restricted Characters

    Click the restore default button

    Re: Error unable to open File

    Performing a 'Restore Default' solved this issue for me.

    In case it helps, I had performed an in-place upgrade of 64-bit R16.1 to 16.2 and started having the problem.

    Many thanks!

    Same problem happened to me, also after upgrading to to v16.2 and when using the Multi-Encoder rather than using a single encoder. I did as Spoon suggested and it fixed it. Note that I had tried reseting filename restricted characters from the CD ripper app and it had not solved the issue. I had to use the dBpoweramp configuration app

    Have you ever run a R16 beta before? or edited that section previously?

    Re: Error unable to open File

    I did not run a beta before and I don't believe I made any changes to the filenames restricted characters. I did use Word/character replacement rules
