MM crash on flac to mp3 bulk convert

Postby Andy8305 » Mon Oct 23, 2017 8:06 pm

When I select multiple files on a NAS and convert them to mp3, MM crashes.

More specifically: Using MM 4.1.1.18.1853 on Windows 10 with the music files stored on a Synology NAS connected with direct Ethernet (not wifi). I select a bunch of flac files and then pick Send To, Folder (Rip/Convert), and Convert Files Replacing Originals, with the default mps settings, so the original on drive R:\artistname\albumname\trackname.flac is replaced by R:\artistname\albumname\trackname.mp3 (well, not replaced since the extension is different so both the flac and mp3 will be there afterwards).

After a random number of files have been converted, Windows will say MM has stopped. If I do this multiple times, I'll also see that some of the mp3 files are only a few KB instead of several MB so probably one file was not fully written during the conversion.

I tried a simpler test and did the convert but wrote them to a temp directory on C instead of back to the NAS, and that did not crash. So, it seems converting many files from a NAS and writing them back to the NAS again has a problem.

Let me know if you need more details. I haven't tried this with the debug version yet.

I'd suggest to update to the latest beta as it fixes a few crash scenarios introduced with 4.1.18: www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewtopic.php ... 54426&sd=d

What amount is a bunch of files for you?

I'll try the beta. Thanks for the link.

The crash seems probablistic. If I select about ten files they will all convert about one third of the time. If I pick twenty or thirty, the entire selection never converted without a crash somewhere through the batch.

This it looking very good. MM 4.1.19.1857 isn't crashing at all. I've converted a block of 43, 68, 500, and now 1200 files without any crash or apparent file errors.

Next I'll do 2,900 files overnight but it does look like whatever the crash was, is fixed.

Thanks!
Andy

Update - they all finished without errors or a crash too.
