After ripping 400+ CD"s with the same settings I'm suddenly getting errors when trying to rip cd's to FLAC. It will extract the .wav without any issues, but I always receive an error when it tries to convert to flac now. I have literally not changed anything.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
In your example, the leading colon ":" (in %albumartist% (CD Artist) or %artist% (Track Artist), depending on which placeholder is in your filename naming scheme) is causing a problem. To be more precise, it is actually the default character replacement of a hyphen "-" used as the first character of the filename that the encoder doesn't like.
...\-wumpscut- - -wreath...
You could edit the box(es) before ripping, adjust character replacements so the colon character is deleted instead of replaced by a hyphen, or change the filename naming scheme.
