Exact Audio Copy: File creation Error

Hi,

I'm so glad I found this Forum. Thank you in advance for any help with this:

I use EAC for years and never had any trouble with it. I didn't change anything to the settings, nor to the PC (except probably automated updates for Windows 10) and suddenly I get a "file creation error" each time I try to copy a CD. It does so always on the first track and aborts.

Here's the log:
Code: [Select]
Track  1
     Copy aborted
 
Track  2
     Copy aborted
 
Track  3
     Copy aborted
 
Track  4
     Copy aborted
 
Track  5
     Copy aborted
 
Track  6
     Copy aborted
 
Track  7
     Copy aborted
 
Track  8
     Copy aborted
 
Track  9
     Copy aborted
 
 
 1 track(s) not fully ripped for AccurateRip lookup
 8 track(s) canceled
 
No tracks could be verified as accurate
 
There were errors

All CDs?
What are your settings for
EAC > EAC Options > Directories (tab)
EAC > EAC Options > Filename (tab) > Naming scheme
Can you post a full extraction log (see pic)?

Make sure your CD has both a CD artist and album title otherwise EAC chokes making a file name.

Hi, thanks. I made sure it had these fields filled in, but to no avail, still "file creation error".

So I went through these threads but couldn't find anything to relate to.

The settings are as follows:
EAC > EAC Options > Directories (tab): "Ask everytime (Default showing last used directory)
EAC > EAC Options > Filename (tab): %tracknr2% %title%

Here is the full extraction log:

Unclear if you have a folder named "-", you edited something out or ...
I'd try shortening the path all the way down to "F:\Music"
You can always move the files if it rips.

All CDs suddenly. I didn't change anything for years in this setup and the settings but seemingly out of the blue it says "file creation error"

No this folder "-" exists (also for years - and works well)

I tried that. I also tried to move it to a different drive...

I also uninstalled it and installed it again. Could it be a Windows 10 update? Something with file permissions (I tried a few things but that too didn't help).

I also uninstalled it and installed it again.
Did you also clear the registry settings?
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AWSoftware\EACU
Each plugin also has settings data saved in the registry in different locations but I wouldn't think they would matter.

I've had permission and sharing settings change after a version update.
You would receive the same type of error trying to save files to a location that the program doesn't have permission to write (like C:\) but you said you already tried saving to a different location.

Permission seems to be the culprit. When I changed location, I still used the same drive. Now, I changed drive and it works. Now I have to figure out how to change permissions. "Run as administrator" doesn't help. Left click > properties and then enabling "Write" doesn't do anything either... Have to investigate

Do you know how to get the permissions right for EAC to work properly?

Re: Exact Audio Copy: File creation Error

Reply #12
Thank you all for you help. Thanks korth for your advice with the permissions. I git it now working. I set permission at the root.
