Error after applying ReplayGain
Hi there,

I encountered a bug or problem and hopefully somebody can help me with it. I have several mp3-files which get defective after applying ReplayGain to the file.
The problem is reproducable and occurs with different (but not all) files too. So this is what I do:

1. Verify the file to make sure it's ok. I use foo_verifier to do that.
Code: [Select]
Item: "C:\Users\xxx\Desktop\test.mp3"
No problems found.

All items decoded successfully.

2. Either "Scan per-file track gain" or "Scan selection as a single album". Makes no difference which one I take.

3. Apply the track or album gain. Console says that it worked.
Code: [Select]
MP3 gain adjustment: "C:\Users\xxx\Desktop\test.mp3" altered successfully by -2.

4. Verify the file again to make sure everything's fine.
Code: [Select]
Item: "C:\Users\xxx\Desktop\test.mp3"
Error: MPEG frame checksum mismatch.

1 item could not be correctly decoded.

List of undecodable items:

Here's a link to the file I tested:

I expected that after applying the gain the mp3-file still has no errors, and for the most part of my music this is the case. Does anyone have a clue why this could cause problems with specific files?

Error: MPEG frame checksum mismatch.

Original file has CRC in frames, and foobar can't rewrite this CRC when alters file.

Is there a particular reason why foobar can't/won't rewrite the CRC?

If you really want to remove CRC, you can repack file using mp3packer.

No need to remove CRC from your file. It was a goofy bug in foobar2000 code altering MP3 frames - it was supposed to write updated CRCs, but it didn't quite do so. Fixed now.

Thanks for the report.
