I try to extract cdda files from a burned music cd into ezac as wav files I have the following problem. The first screen that pops up in easy audio copy states: "some or all files could not be created...." the second screen pops up stating: 'all tracks were extracted error free'. I then open the folder that songs were extracted to and when trying to play one song on computer the following message pops up: 'This file isn't playable. That might be because the file type is unsupported, the file extension is incorrect, or the file is corrupt.' if I look into the properties of any individual file it shows zero bytes.
The puzzling part for me is that the cd itself can play perfectly in computer or cd player hooked up to stereo receiver and speakers. Has anyone encountered this situation? Thanks
Did you change where the files are being stored with the AdvancedOptions tool? Are the temporary files still in %localappdata%\temp\EasyAudioCopy ? The audio is ripped to this location (if the location wasn't changed using the AdvancedOptions tool), then moved to the final destination.
Thanks. I actually did change where the extracted files were stored (not the temp app data files) using advanced options. Im not advanced so I never knew about the temp files ( i know its sounds dumb) I did a search of the path you gave and all the songs were there in wav format and all played. They did have a bunch of letters and numbers associated with each song? So I wonder if this only happens with cdda files. The question I have is how can I use those temp files to burn a cd? Thanks
You may be trying to save the extracted files to a protected location (e.g. C:\) or a location that requires elevated privileges (e.g. Administrator). Try a different location (e.g. C:\MyRips\) and rip the CDR again.
The .wav files in the temp folder have temporary file names. You could rename the files yourself to the correct names but I would suggest trying the above first.
One of the easiest ways to burn to CD from individual track files is to have Easy Audio Copy create a .CUE file (AdvancedOptions tool again) while ripping and use that file in your favorite burn program (e.g. ImgBurn). However a program like ImgBurn would allow you load all the .wav files in order and create it's own .CUE file for burning.
The location had no problems before. I did include the cue sheet option from advanced as you suggested. After extraction each file indicated 'extracted error free' with the following statement:
"The WAV file could not be tagged or moved to the target path Please make sure that the target drive has enough storage space left (Error message: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.)"
I then tried to open the cue sheet in foobar 2000 and get the following message:
"Unable to open item for playback (Unsupported format or corrupted file): "C:\Users\test\Desktop\Music\WAV\CDImages\Unknown artist - Unknown title.cue" / index: 12"
Im wondering if a burning program will straighten this situation out. Ill have to try
