Batch conversions freezing/crashing!!!

Post by agregal » Tue Dec 04, 2007 5:26 pm

I have been trying to batch convert FLAC files into mp3's but when there is a large number of files to convert, Max freezes. Usually, the songs being converted stop in the encoder box, sometimes around 81% done and 95%.

All my FLAC files are on an external hard drive, I'm using the latest stable version of Max. I do have a large number of files somewhere in the neighborhood of 15,000 and I would like to set up the batch conversions to take place at night when I'm sleeping.

Any idea why this happens?

It's still happening and I don't have a clue as to why! The only thing that I can think of is that my external drive spins down after being left unattended for some time. That's the only thing that comes to mind when trying to figure this out. If anyone has any other theories please let me know!
