file splitting


Recommended Posts

Hey Lightning!


I’ve had a problem with reading a couple of audio CDs. It won’t go beyond ‘Analysing tracks’. Seems to be a problem with file splitting.


You referred a previous post on this subject to




...where you say:


"Technically, it's not a freeze, it's a loop


One of these days I'll get round to testing with some more disc and do some more fine tuning if I come across one that has the problem."


Am I right in assuming that there’s nothing that can be done about this then – certain CDs just can’t be read?


Many thanks


(the log is below, although it’s the same as ones that others have posted)

File splitting is nothing to do with it, the message in the status bar is the important one - that's what the program is actually attempting to do at the time and not every step gets logged.


At the moment, yeah nothing can be done about it. Some drives just can't be used to read certain CDs.

OK - thanks for clarifying.


I was copying my CDR collection to BIN/CUE files over the weekend and out of hundreds of CDs only 3 failed to convert so that's not a bad percentage....
