OK, I have an AudioTron, so I am undertaking a massive projet to convert all my CDs to VBR mp3s. I started this project a while ago and have since gotten a new computer. (Windows XP, AMD 1600+ XP processor, 1GB SDRAM, ECS motherboard) Now, I had no problems before, but now I cannot get Lame to work on my computer. Lame is a free, command line MP3 encoder with lots of options, and works with lots of programs and front-ends. In the past, I was using a front end called Razor Lame that worked well. Now, I cannot encode a single MP3 file. It starts out fine, and then as it gets to the end of each wav file, it spits out an error message, but the program doesnt crash at first. If I let it keep going, it will usually eventually crash, or stop encoding, but it will usually write the first 2-4 mp3s before it crashes. If I play the MP3s, they work, but at the end, they usually cut off a little, and the track time is not right in winamp. ie the song ends before the time is up. Any ideas? I have no idea why this isnt working. Oh, PS, I also have audio grabber, which has a dll-ized version of lame, and it crashes while encoding too. I can encode with BladeEnc fine, but I want to do VBR files and blade doesnt allow that.
