"An error occured when encoding the file..."

Post by Aldo Alvarez » Sat Mar 24, 2007 6:26 am

At the end of encoding the last track of a CD (not necessarily the final track, just the last track it encodes from each CD), Max gives me an error message:

"An error occured when encoding the file "name of file"

*** -[NSCFDictionary setObject:forKey:]: attempt to insert nil value"

The file plays perfectly fine, but it's irritating as I can no longer just rip a few CDs and let Max encode them by itself as it stops dead when it has this error. What do I need to fix?

Let me take a moment to say thank you for your excellent software which enables so many of my music hobbyist projects.

Don't let this get to your head, but I would pay for this software if it's ever released commercially. I still use XLD to split whole-album FLACs and iTunes to split whole album .iso files, though...
