Re: Trader's Little Helper

I just fixed "Springsteen 2005-04-25" and the entire process could not have been any easier. Thanks for the program and thanks for the instructions here. The DIME torrent has links to both, you might be getting some extra traffic.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

Apologies but I need to get my head round this re fixing SBEs.

Am I right in thinking that for most eventualities you'd use 'fix' mode, only using 'pad' mode if you wanted to pad the last file of a set with silence [ie, if that was the only track with a SBE].

Big thanks for this btw, it solves one of the main bugbears for testing flac files - no more ugly DOS box window that scrolls out of sight [so you can't see the results].

Like the other person earlier in the thread, I have the exact same exception errors and the same lock up problem. I am using the latest build and have all updates for Windows XP. This looks like a great program that I will revisit once the bugs are worked out. Thanks for taking the time to do this Robert.

Another thing I've noticed - if you double click on more than one md5, mkwact will queue them up for checking - this doesn't happen with TLH - for a future release perhaps ?

Re: Trader's Little Helper

Sorry for answering so late, but there was *a lot* of trouble at home the last couple of days ...

Yep.

As I said earlier in this thread there is *no* bug and Trader's Little Helper *is* stable. This "access violation ... in RICHED20.DLL" error occurs because Windows OS (AFAIK WinXP and Win2003 only) has some kind of timing problem accessing the dll if the calling application uses different ways (at nearly the same time) in the OS messaging system to put text into a richedit element.

At the moment I am testing a 6 CD set of flac files, size about 1,92 GB, every file with a sector boundary error. I've rewritten two lines so all fix SBEs output instructions are using the same way in the messaging system now. Seems this solves the problem, but I'm not sure yet and will do more tests over the next days.

If you select more than one file and then double-click on them Windows OS *always* will pass just the file your mouse cursor was over at the time of double clicking (test this with .txt files for example). So only one checksum file can be verified via double-click. But if you select more than one file and then use your right mouse button you can select the 'Verify with Trader's Little Helper' item in the files context menu. Trader's Little Helper will then verify *all* selected files.

I *was* having this problem but realized it doesn't happen when I close Outlook Express before using TLH. Thanks again to roann for such a useful "all-in-one" tool

There definitely is this access violation problem you and others had described. I never tried to deny it. Got it myself quite a few times, but only on a Win2k3 machine and only from time to time (same set of files ...). BTW Outlook Express was closed all the time. This becomes more and more the twilight zone ... maybe I should contact Mr. Gates

Re: Trader's Little Helper

I too have had this problem on Win2K. I don't use OE. (Neither should you, but that's another thread ) Anyhow, I've also gotten the same error when using FLAC 1.1.2. and Frontend v. 1.7.1 (Etree). I wondered if the others that have had this problem were working with flac files when it occurred. The only errors I have encountered were when working with FLAC files. Maybe that is the common element.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

I had problems with SHN tool before,trying to figure it out,but TLH has solved a load of these problems,and it is so easy to use.A great prog for checking files and repairing easily when necessary.All we need now is to be enable to encode files with it and we'll be laughing. Thanks a lot for this,and from a few others I've recommended it to as well
Cheers

i concur, come on with the encoding and I dont think I'll need another piece of software that has anything to do with compression/verification...

Re: Trader's Little Helper

Looks very promising. Thanks for sharing your work.

I have some sort of request.
Could you implement the feature for dragging and dropping files in other windows than "Decode Files" too.
If Im dropping files from Explorer it always defaults to "Decode Files".

Another one:
If you add audio files per "Add Button" (Test Encoded Files, Audio File Details, Fix SBEs, Decode Files) it would be nice if you could select on "File Type" something like "all supported file types"

Another really minor one:
In len mode an output format in MB would be helpful.
length expanded size cdr WAVE problems filename
3:18.62 35073068 --- -- ---xx Nirvana_1994-03-01_AUD1_remaster_d1t01.flac

instead of

Re: Trader's Little Helper

Hey all, still having this problem with the "access violation ... in RICHED20.DLL" error. Have just updated Widows XP SP2 with all relevant updates from the Microsoft website to see if this would make things any better but instead it has now totally crashed TLH. Everytime I run Audio File Details on a series of files it I now get this error whereas before I was only getting it when trying to run the Fix SBE's feature. It'd be great if someone could help me resolve this issue cause I'm not the greatest with cmd line & all that & this prog seems like a godsend if I could get it to work properly

thanks
squire

Re: Trader's Little Helper

I just tried this today, it's really great. All it needs is an encoding feature and a "joinwav" command like shntool has, and I can ditch every other program I have!

Re: Trader's Little Helper

My god.. This app is the cat's meow.. Abosfrigginlutely amazing.. THANK YOU, for all of your hard work on this!! Found it as I was searching TTD for a way to fix SBEs now that I've implemented the code that Five pointed out for Foobar to detect them. Finally got my hands on a copy of the complete pizza tapes, and wouldn't you know it, all but one track had SBEs.

So, anyhow, upgraded TLH (had the old pre-SBE fix version) and proceeded to load all the files up and fix SBE (I assumed that I could do these all as one set rather than breaking it up by disc since it's all fairly continuous, right?) I loaded all files, INCLUDING the one that didn't have an SBE, and that was that. Finished fixing, loaded the originals and the fixed files into foobar, and the fixed don't show SBEs anymore.. Awesome!@ Thanks!

How would I go about updating the lineage to reflect that I fixed the SBEs?
