Thanks for the report, problem confirmed.

It would appear that libFLAC violently opposes our attempts of controlling how much padding is used.

This will be resolved in the next update.

Unfortunately this didn't provide useful information.

If you can create a memory dump of the player when it hangs Peter should be able to see where the problem lies. The dump can be created with Task Manager. If you are on a 64-bit OS you need to manually start the 32-bit Task Manager to create a usable file. You can do that by running C:\Windows\SysWOW64\taskmgr.exe.

Once Task Manager is running right click on the foobar2000 process and select "Create dump file". The file will be saved in your temp directory and you can easily open the dir by typing %temp% in the address bar field in explorer.

The dump file can be quite large so please compress it first. Windows has built-in support for zip but if you have WinRAR or 7-Zip installed you can use those formats too.

Upload the compressed dump file here.

Right so the drive isn't failing, rather it's just a measure of backup that I wanna adopt for even when I buy a brand new drive... that said, since I first wrote the post, my drive has now had some problems and has a SMART "Caution" on Crystaldiskinfo so that's that, and it has made me more anxious than ever on getting this right.

The best choice: sort the files before exporting and before importing, too, by path (%_path%), so it never will the case for problems. I (as most of us, I think) store my files in directory structure pop\performer\album\"track. title" and classical\composer\album\"track. title" (using "_various" subfolders too, in booth). So in case of needs, it will easy to sort files for restoring: they will exactly in that order, as the backup data. Of course, you must to check the number of files.

As I wrote earlier, before exporting, first replace (with functions) line breaks and tabulators in such tags, as comments, lyrics, and so on. And, learn the $loop() function's ability to sort.

Okay first of all thanks for your help. Now see, this is what I mean: I do an export of the whole library as a .csv today, and tomorrow I download and introduce a new album into the collection, so now the order of the files doesn't match up, and the number of files doesn't match up, right? So what good is the .csv in that case? My library changes all the time, so the number of files and all of that will never match up perfectly unless I stop downloading music for the rest of my life. It'd be perfect if it could recognize automatically, for example - import .csv > search for "Thriller" by "Michael Jackson" > found! > import tags of "Thriller" by "Michael Jackson" > search for "Beat It" by "Michael Jackson" > not found! > don't import tags of "Beat It" by "Michael Jackson" > repeat until filling all library.

How do you mean about the line breaks and all of that? What's the purpose of that, and how do I do it?
I haven't seen photos, but if (as others are saying and as I suspect) the headphone jack is mechanically held in place by the circuit board traces themselves then you need to completely stop using it until you can mechanically secure it to something else.  Hot glue works wonders IF you have room inside the case.
Ha, I thought I would get emails alerting me to responses. Did on my last post at least. I'm no good with all this soldering and DIY-type stuff, but I suppose I could learn pretty easily if needed. Glue, eh? I'll see how things progress, if needed I could do this. The supplies would be cheaper than a new DAC anyways! Ha ha.

Thanks a lot guys.

Oops! Understood you. If he does not use files' backup, as I, he must use tags' backup often. Yes, in this case foobar's Text tool plugin is better, for example. Foobar stores all tags in his library. But, anyway, he need Mp3tag for restoring.
I'm certainly not saying these tests aren't helpful or that the information shouldn't be used! Just that in taking the information into account one needs to consider not only statistical strength but also possible sources of bias.

If a different tuning process is happening for speech, it takes noise on both ends into account, and the classifier continues to improve, that covers basically all my concerns. Though there are use cases for noisy music I can see optimizing for that wouldn't be a priority.

Part of why I wondered about this was hearing about both the HF tilt work here and the "fullband speech starting from 14kbps" in the 1.2a changelog.

If there are ways we here at HA could be of help in testing speech improvements, I'd be interested to know.

IgorC: By "golden ears" I just mean someone who can ABX things most listeners can't (despite some training), not any kind of audiophile superstition. Also, it's certainly possible to have controlled tests with artificial noise sources in either the input or the listening setup, suboptimal equipment, or untrained listeners. But unless you have a sizable budget it's not easy to organize something like that and get enough participation to have statistical strength given the likely higher variance of responses.

But this is not about Mp3Tag being a good piece of software or not (I think it is, I am a happy user myself).
It is about a failing hard drive. If you wish to backup all the tags, then your first shot is something that does not have to read the drive again - something which has all the tags in its library already.

OK, here's what process explorer looks like when I try to close the program. The first is closing it normally, and the second is when windows forces the close. I have no idea what foobar2000.exe+0x119a69 refers to, but it appears to be the culprit.
