If I remember correctly, you sent me a testing version some tiem ago, but it never worked. My memory is not any good, but maybe there were problems with supporting DLLs or something like that (maybe I even told you :))). I'll try to find it and test again.

Regards.

I've never been happy with my calculations on the partition creation side of things, so I can wholly believe there's an issue from the perspective. 

I think I had a version that uses a different calculation - and I sent it out for testing, but I don't recall ever getting feedback as to whether or not it was resolved, or if it was ever rolled into the last public version of the tools.

Not too much of a big deal for me, I just default to XP because of my personal industry experience. I have the Win7's in VM's now and they work. But if you want to try and work out the bug, I'm willing to be the tester. I did try to find 2.10 but I didn't look hard enough find it to see if it replicates the same error. I can remember trying the another version, I tried since post and it threw the error, I think 2.13.or 2.12. I know the other versions don't function in grabbing the online files, but the net error is at the beginning. That is as far as I have gone. I can get details of the OS versions and stuff but I'm down with a failed SSD on the machine I setup for the moment.

Also another note for the forum buried in the forum I came across that really helped.
If you make a drive and you can see it in windows and load music on it, but it doesn't load in the player. Then chkdsk the DATA partition.  The OS's missed complaining about the data partition, think one of the 7's complained once and I wrote if off as anomaly. I only found out when I checked with g-part that the Data partition was out of range. Since the newly created drive failed to load in the player. I used Win7 to do the chkdsk repair. The drive I re-setup has been rock stable in the player ever since. Loads every time since and no random no CD error.

PhatHack MM also has options to transcode media to a flat format.  Obviously this will cause the transfer process to be slower while it does this, so it's a trade off on how you want to proceed.

Once I get my CarPC back up and running (car has been off the road for a while with a damaged axle), I'll be looking to fix / re-write it, so if you do use it and need things sorting out, let me know!

My host migrated servers recently and somehow managed to destroy the Phatnoise.us website in the process, and I haven't worked out why it refuses to start.
I should just migrate it to WordPress and be done with it, but I'll have another crack at the weekend.

Hey, sorry I didn't see this.  Seems odd that .NET gave you the documents error on Windows XP.  Which version of XP was it, and how up to date was it?
I can take a look at the source code and see if I can replicate / fix it on one of my own VMs if I have any XP ones around still!

Yup.  Phatnoise has a few limitations in respect to what compression settings some types of mp3s will and wont play.

When I run into problems like those, I usually just run those mp3s thru Audacity with the LAME plugin.  The LAME plugin allows Audacity to export mp3's.  Audacity is a free open source audio editing program.  We can talk about bitrates and other variables if needed, but usually 128 is pretty standard for "normal" quality and 320 is "high quality".  I believe Phatnoise Music Manager has some options for conversions of bitrates and re-encoding mp3s which may help.


RELATED: MP3 PATENT FINALLY EXPIRED!
https://tech.slashdot.org/story/17/05/16/1314221/mp3-is-not-dead-its-finally-free

Basically, what that means is the previous patent holder is no longer requiring licenses for software to be able to export audio in mp3 format.  Thus, the LAME plugin for Audacity may not be needed much longer and a new release will most likely have native mp3 export support.

perfect thx,

I got it working so that's all good, although some of the mp3 music I tried to transfer doesn't work, but some do.. ever run into that?

hey, so I tried that and It is still the same thing.. It most likely has something to do with taken songs on & off the dms cartridge without the music manager,

I don't have one, does anyone.. or Do you think that would at least fix my problem

thanks
Yes, if you just tried to copy music on the DMS from explorer or something like thtat, it won't work. I don't think that it would damage the DMS, just the new files wouldn't appear, but perhaps something happened to databases.

You should be able to get a copy of PMM in VortechS' site, phatnoise.us, if I remember correctly. If you can't or the site is down I think I have it somewhere home. Just tell me and I'll try to send it to you somehow.

Regards.
