EAC: File Creation Error on first CD track
In EAC, I am getting  "File Creation Error!" on the first track of every CD I try to extract from, compressed or uncompressed. All other tracks extract w/o issues. Also, I can Test the first track in EAC, w/o issues.

I don't recall having this error before in EAC. I can extract first CD tracks from other software, such as Foobar2000.

Any ideas what may be causing this?

What is your command line, especially the part that defines the target file name?

Please include a rip log detailing the encoder and command line options as well as the destination path and names for your files.

It's a lot better to tell us this first rather than forcing us to guess.  I normally ignore posts that are overly-vague.

General Audio is not the right forum for this post.  I will be moving it to the correct forum.  Please read the Terms Of Service, particularly number 6 if you have any questions.

Is 24-bit/192kHz good enough for your lo-fi vinyl, or do you need 32/384?

EAC log also (strangely) notes that Track 2 "aborted", but it was ripped -- dunno why log is wrong??

Your paths and/or filenames are too long, this is the reason for your error.

Regarding the aborted track, are you sure the entire thing was ripped?  Are you able to listen all the way through?

Thx for your reply. Now that I think about it, I do remember having this issue before , but don't recall if it was the shortening the file name and/or removing "troublesome" text character(s) that was the ultimate fix. You're correct: the aborted track didn't ripped all the way thru!

Will post back when I have some better answers.

Yes, illegal characters can do this as well, but I think EAC already handles this as a potential problem by mapping them to legal ones.  I don't think that it does anything about illegal characters being passed by parameter, though.

Did you want that track to rip all the way through?

Although it is possible to create very long paths (by moving directories into other directories) on NTFS partitions, accessing files or directories directly if their path exceeds 255 characters fails.

It's also possible to get to those files by moving a directory up in the the hierarchy, for example to the root of the filesystem tree "X:\".

I think you're right. The folder (directory) name lengths are another snag  -- as you implied earlier -- so newbies take note!

F9 -> Extraction tab -> Skip extraction on read and sync errors

I'm assuming deselecting this setting will fix the problem.

I, too faced this problem when ripping a VA sampler.
While I'm not sure which of the following solved the problem, this is what I did to overcome:

a. Unchecked Various Artists checkbox
b. Replaced "/" character with "-" character in titles
c. Populated previously unpopulated tag fields:
  - CD Artist
  - Year
  - Genre

Hope this helps someone in the future.

I just had this problem.  At first I thought it was my recent upgrade to Win10 (I don't use EAC often), but I finally noticed that the metadata that was downloaded for the disc had an empty per-track Artist field.  So it was trying to write the empty %artist% tag into filenames and that caused the problem.  Just filling the fields out fixed it.

That's the first metadata that I've seen like that, it never came up before.
