    CDRip getting run-time error 29872

    During the rip of a 15 track CD on the 5th track, RR (I'm assuming CDRip) is displaying a dialog box with the following message:

    "run-time error '29872'
    Unable to open file for writing".

    When OK is clicked, RR terminates.

    This error occurs everytime I try to rip that CD (Haven't tried any others). Before each attempt I clean out the previous attempt.

    There is over 10GB of space free on the target disk.

    Question: Is there another output file that CDRip might try to write after 4 tracks are ripped. If so, what is it and what might be the target?

    I can any firther testing an problem determination that might be required.

    Jim


    P.S. I "discovered" the config switch to turn on debug. Ran CDRip, same failure, debug.txt shows nothing unusual as far as I can tell.

    can you check the file names and artist/album names ? I'm pretty sure there are preventions agains bad folder/file names but I'm taking a guess in saying there's probably an invalid character in there (missed by the code) causing the issue.

    Guino,

    The title is Flying Theme from "E.T."

    This is a John Williams anthology and several titles have double quotes and periods.

    Regards,
    Jim

    I don't believe you can have quotes in the folder/file names, remove that and see if it works.. I definitely have to add prevention against the quotations.

    I know you can't.

    Not in 45 years in this business have I ever been able to put double quotes (or single one for that matter) in to file names or dataset names (IBM mainframe talk).

    I've normally made a coding practice of removing or rejecting all special characters from file names except - and . There are cases that the lattter can cause problems. Whether I reject the filename or remove the special character depends on whether the "user" entered the name or it came from some uncontrolled source like a cd directory.

    I wasn't paying attention to the track names as I was letting cdrip "just rip".

    Which brings up the question, how do I change that name other than ripping a track at a time?

    Regards,
    Jim

    you can edit the album/genre/artist info by clicking on it, and you can edit the track name by selecting it and clicking the button to edit the name. You can edit out all the invalid characters and hit rip ALL if you want to. I was under the impression I had code in there to clean up invalid chars, but apparently that was missing. The source code has always been available for anybody to mess with it though.

    guino,

    I found the place where filenames are cleaned of special characters and double quotes, single quotes, dots, semi-colons, and a few others are NOT removed.

    The subroutine is "cleanup" in source module modCDRip.bas at line 1539 in my copy of the source zip file.

    I would change it but unfortunately I don't have the necessary SDK as I do all of my work in Java, C, and C++.

    Would I be possible for you to make this fix?

    Regards,
    Jim

    pretty sure I've already updated this, but was still loonking into actually preserving those chars for the tags, so it's not as simple as I thought.
