Thread: CD Ripper Had Worked Perfectly

    CD Ripper Had Worked Perfectly

    The software was doing great in ripping my CD collection and then all of a sudden it started to give error messages. Error ripping to Apple Lossless, 'Track 1' to 'C:\Users\vicbe\Music\Bob Dylan\Dylan Greatest Hits\01 Bob Dylan - Rainy Day Women *12 & 35.m4a'
    Error unable to open File 'C:\Users\vicbe\Music\Bob Dylan\Dylan Greatest Hits\01 Bob Dylan - Rainy Day Women *12 & 35._' for writing. [clEncoder_ALAC::BeginConversion]

    Error ripping to Apple Lossless, 'Track 2' to 'C:\Users\vicbe\Music\Bob Dylan\Dylan Greatest Hits\02 Bob Dylan - Blowin' In The Wind.m4a'
    Error unable to open File 'C:\Users\vicbe\Music\Bob Dylan\Dylan Greatest Hits\02 Bob Dylan - Blowin' In The Wind._' for writing. [clEncoder_ALAC::BeginConversion]

    This happens for all tracks.


    Can someone please help me to get this up and running again?

    Thanks

    The asterisk (*) is an illegal character for a filename (or folder for that matter) in Windows. Delete it or use another character in its place and you should be OK. That doesn't explain track 2 or the others. I wonder if it's "hanging on" for the rest of the rips in memory somehow? Does it happen if you try to rip to FLAC or WAV or other filetype?

    Are you logged on to the computer as user "vicbe"? If not, Windows probably can't write there.

    CD Ripper >> Green options button >> CD Ripper Options >> Filename restricted characters click 'set'

    Click 'restore to default' because * by default is changed to -

    Yes I am actually logged in but I have have been having access problems. I am running Windows 10 Pro and I am the only user on this computer; but I am having some type of permissions issue. Can files be ripped to another location?

    I rip to C:\Music (which is outside of the user profile and not the %music% variable). See if that works for you. Another thing to try (since you're the only user on the PC, I'll assume you're the administrator) is to create a new user profile with Admin rights, log into that profile and see if you can rip it to the new profile without issues.

    This is what I ended up doing. I changed the path and saved the files to an external hard drive. Everything is working well again.
