Thread: Help with error in secure ripping

    Help with error in secure ripping

    I am just getting started with dbpoweramp ripper and ran into an issue.
    I configured ripper according to: http://www.dbpoweramp.com/cd-ripper-setup-guide.htm
    (there is no 'save setting' button anywhere and the settings appear to be 'sticking' when I went back and rechecked them)

    Anyway, I am ripping to FLAC and am getting error on 18 of 21 tracks. Some questions:
    1) how can I see what the error is? any way to correct it?
    2)Is the resultant FLAC file still 'playable'? It played OK under WMP on a PC. Any bad side effects of having a ripped track with errors? (what if I convert it to mp3?

    A question related to batch conversion
    1) Now I have 4 CDs ripped in FLAC. I want to 'create a mirror' directory with .mp3 equivalents. Can I do that with dbpoweramp?

    Thanks!

    Are you using the mac version?

    1) what is shown on the screen to indicate an error?

    Use Batch Converter, select your root music folder, click convert, choose mp3 (lame), set the output location to 'Preserve source path' and choose a different root location for the mp3 files to be saved (you not want them mixed in with the flac files).

    1a)I am using the Windows version - Windows 10, fully patched. Downloaded & installed the most current version of dbpoweramp.
    Looking at the Dbpoweramp CD Ripper window, in the Rip Status column, I see the word 'Error' in red. See attached picture.
    Here is a snippet from the error log:
    [
    Error ripping to FLAC, 'Track 1' to 'K:\1_dbpoweramp_music\Viktoria Mullova\Works for Solo Violin\01 Viktoria Mullova - Partita No. 1 in B minor BWV1002; Allemanda.flac'
    Track Ripped Insecurely.

    Error ripping to FLAC, 'Track 2' to 'K:\1_dbpoweramp_music\Viktoria Mullova\Works for Solo Violin\02 Viktoria Mullova - Partita No. 1 in B minor BWV1002; Double.flac'
    Track Ripped Insecurely.

    Error ripping to FLAC, 'Track 3' to 'K:\1_dbpoweramp_music\Viktoria Mullova\Works for Solo Violin\03 Viktoria Mullova - Partita No. 1 in B minor BWV1002; Corrente.flac'
    Track Ripped Insecurely
    ]
    The surface of this CD has a lot of fine scratches.

    All the other CD rips worked fine.

    2a) Thanks, got it and the conversion to mp3 worked.

    Thank you for a quick reply to my initial post!

    You have enabled the option 'Mark Insecure tracks as Error' (or similar), you not need this option.

    Also the information report will tell you the ripping status, as far as secure details.
