File Creation Error for the first track on most CD's

Recently when I've tried ripping a few CD's, the very first track will appear with the "File Creation Error". The entire CD and tracks will rip perfectly fine APART from the very first one of a handful CD's I've tried.

I've searched through a sea of previous threads trying to find a solution, and have taken every bit of advice I could to get this working, but to absolutely no avail. I've tried different directories, moving folders, changing names, removing "illegal" characters, different less complex naming schemes, "Skip extraction on read and sync errors" being unchecked, almost anything I could think of that would get the random first track to extract correctly.

I thought it was because I rip a lot of Japanese CD's with odd characters, but I had ripped plenty in the past with complex characters, and it sometimes just doesn't work even with regular Latin characters. I'm very much at a loss, it feels completely nonsensical why it works sometimes for certain CD's and not for others.

Is there anything else I can do? I apologise in advanced but I have absolutely no idea how to get a log file to share on here, something about going to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Exact Audio Copy" and then running the "CheckLog.exe". But that does absolutely nothing for me but flash a small command prompt window for a 10th of a second. Feel just completely lost, can anyone give me a hand here? Using "V1.3 from 2"

EAC Options > Tools tab > Automatically write status report after extraction > enabled
After extraction, open the .log file from the output folder with a text editor (such as NotePad) to view, copy and post as text.

If I recall correctly, this error can happen if there are blank fields that EAC would use to create the directory or populate the file name. Ensure there is valid info in all the necessary fields.

Same thing started happening to me a couple of weeks ago on my main PC.

Could rip fine with other computers, so I've just sent my old CD drive to the bin and installed a fresh replacement.  Same thing.

Only difference I can think of between successful and unsuccessful rips with the same CDs is that the workers are not running the Windows 10 build 2004 update.  Is that somehow putting a lock on the drive and preventing EAC from writing?

Are you running build 2004?

Is the EAC developer contactable through this board?

Edit: I have not experienced issues with version 2004.

Interesting, thanks.

There are clearly various problems with this update that impact users differently depending on their hardware configuration, and I seem to have seen suggestions that write permissions is one general issue.

Guess I'll now have to block automatic updates on the old machine I know still works reliably with EAC.  And go and fish my old CD drive out of the bin :D
