Thanks man! Now the mp3 creating works fine.  :-)

edit:
Somthing must be wrong with the copying of embedded pictures from FLAC to Mp3.
I can see the embedded pictures with Mp3tag v2.38 and with the Toaster plugin for Winamp. But not with AudioShell v1.3.5. Everything works fine when I save the tags again with Mp3tag.

So I guess somthing is wrong how BonkEnc. v1.0.3 includes the Covers to the mp3 file.

This is a problem with AudioShell. It seems to get confused with empty picture descriptions encoded in Unicode.

The same problem exists in iTunes, maybe both programs are using the same ID3 tag library. See this post for more information. I have already submitted a bug report to Apple.

There is a description field in every ID3v2 picture frame. BonkEnc uses Unicode by default to encode the description. If the description is not empty, iTunes will read it and everything works fine. However, if the description is empty (the usual case), iTunes is confused and refuses to accept the picture frame.

A workaround is to set the ID3v2 tag encoding in BonkEnc to something other than UTF-16LE or UTF-16BE (UTF-8 would work with iTunes, but WMP does not support it; so ISO-8859-1 is really the only choice).


I save my tags in Mp3tag with UTF-16. And it works fine with AudioShell. And I use the same (UTF-16LE) in BoncEnc.
So I still guess it's about BoncEnc v1.0.3  ;-)

Correct me if I'm wrong!

Even if you select UTF-16 in Mp3tag it will save picture descriptions as ISO-8859-1.

I made the following test to confirm this:

- Added a picture description with ID3-TagIT. It saved it in UTF-16.
- Saved the tag again with Mp3tag. It kept everything in UTF-16, except the picture description which it converted to ISO-8859-1.

Btw. you should be able to reproduce the problem (in AudioShell and iTunes) using ID3-TagIT as it seems to save tags the same way BonkEnc does.

Ok, thanks for testing!

Maybe BonkEnc could do the same in a future release?    At least optional?

Thanks for the new release!

Just one question. What advantage has the "NT-SCSI-DLL" option?

Some people reported that BonkEnc detected only virtual CD drives in ASPI mode. The problem was solved by enabling NT SCSI mode.

The problem with ASPI is that there are lots of different ASPI drivers out there. Some of them seem to cause weird problems for applications like BonkEnc. The NT SCSI driver is the same everywhere and there don't seem to be such issues.

Is this now the preferred ripper/encoder for those that used CDex and EAC before?

For me it is  . I have replaced my CDex with BonkEnc and am completely satisfied.
IMHO this is the best alternative to EAC, for people who want an easy-to use program
which just works (without the need of reading extensive config guides and setting too many options).

Thank you Robert for this little gem !

I released BonkEnc version 1.0.9 yesterday.

It updates LAME to version 3.98.1 (released on CVS only) to fix an issue with frequency filtering (LAME bug #2029282) and includes a reworked LAME configuration dialog which should reduce confusion about VBR settings and allows decimal values for VBR quality.

Further changes:
  • updated Serbian, Polish and Swedish translations
  • upgraded cdparanoia III to version 10.2
  • fixed handling of comments in metadata
  • various other bug fixes

Great software, but I would love cue support for flac and ape albums to cut them up in individual mp3s.  Until then gotta keep EAC and Monkey's Audio on my PC.

I just released BonkEnc v1.0.11.

Changes:
  • updated Italian, Serbian and Swedish translations
  • added <directory> pattern to allow preserving existing directory structures
  • fixed handling of non-ASCII characters when opening MP3 files with multiple tags
  • fixed ID3lib to read and write correct ID3v2.4 tags
  • fixed error resulting in not decoding FLAC files to the end in some situations
  • fixed error opening large MP4 files
  • upgraded FAAC to version 1.28
  • upgraded FAAD2 to version 2.7
  • upgrade to MP4v2 v2.0 alpha (to fix the issues with large files)
The new <directory> file name pattern implements an often requested feature. It allows to rebuild an existing subdirectory structure in the output directory. Its usage is explained in the "How to ...?" section of the manual.

You can get the new release from bonkenc.org.

This will be supported in BonkEnc v1.1 - not in the near future, though.
