Re: Trader's Little Helper

I'll try to build a special release for testing so we can see what metaflac.exe (comes with the official flac.exe) puts out when doing the ffp job - probably this will give us a clue what's going wrong. Unfortunately this needs some time to code, and I won't get it together over this weekend.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

I've got a little problem. I made an ffp file, but one of my flacs gave me something like "Header of file x is corrupt, {stored fingerprint is zero}" What does that mean and how can I fix it?

Edit: Nevermind, figured it out. The header was all screwed up, so I used the fixwav utility from taperssection.com and re-encoded, and it's all good now.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

Just want to report a small bug. When you try to decode/test a file which has letters with diacritics, the program will report the file as corrupt. No problem if I replace the diacritic with a letter without diacritic.

There are a lot of diacritics of there. Can you please name a few that TLH doesn't work with?

TLH works fine with these, at least on my side (flac>wav and wav>flac). Do you have the latest release (v2.5.0 build 160) installed?

Right, latest release is v2.5.0 build 164 (I should know because I coded it). Sorry for the wrong info ... senile dementia, I think.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

Just downloaded TLH...Is there much need for anything else such as the Winamp I'm using to decode FLAC to WAV? Otherwise, this program looks pretty simple to manuever through.

You've got everything you need in TLH for that. No need for winamp other than to play your files. And why not just play the .flacs directly if you're not burning the discs? You'll enjoy it.

Re: Trader's Little Helper

Foobar2000 plays flac files. You can store the flacs on DVDr's or just on your harddrive.
If you go crazy like the rest of us, you'll need more than one harddrive.
Thanks Mike

Question Re: Trader's Little Helper

Hello,

I am a noob to TLH, but have been using various trading software for about 10 years. I had been using windows xp until recently, but upgraded to windows 7 (64-bit) and now my older tools no longer work, so I gave TLH a try.

I'm in the process of reorganizing my collection and pulling files off old discs and moving them to an external hard drive.

My problem is with verification of md5 files. Files that verify as OK using md5sum cause errors in TLH with a "does not exist or cannot be opened" error.

Same fileset, same locations, etc.

With TLH:
----------
Checksum file 'D:\shnflac\badhat1994-09-10\badhat94-09-10d2.md5'

Line 1: file ' badhat94-09-10d2t01.shn' does not exist or cannot be opened.
Line 2: file ' badhat94-09-10d2t02.shn' does not exist or cannot be opened.
Line 3: file ' badhat94-09-10d2t03.shn' does not exist or cannot be opened.
Line 4: file ' badhat94-09-10d2t04.shn' does not exist or cannot be opened.
Line 5: file ' badhat94-09-10d2t05.shn' does not exist or cannot be opened.
Line 6: file ' badhat94-09-10d2t06.shn' does not exist or cannot be opened.
Line 7: file ' badhat94-09-10d2t07.shn' does not exist or cannot be opened.

There were errors.
----------

With md5sum:
----------
D:\shnflac\badhat1994-09-10>md5sum -c badhat94-09-10d2.md5
badhat94-09-10d2t01.shn: OK
badhat94-09-10d2t02.shn: OK
badhat94-09-10d2t03.shn: OK
badhat94-09-10d2t04.shn: OK
badhat94-09-10d2t05.shn: OK
badhat94-09-10d2t06.shn: OK
badhat94-09-10d2t07.shn: OK
----------

I created checksums for the files and they match what is in the md5's.

After playing with it and looking at everything, the errors that I see can be isolated to 1 thing, an asterisk (1 per line) in the md5 file. The filesets that I have that work ok under both follow a format of 'checksum *filename' whereas the ones that TLH doesnt work on are just 'checksum filename'. I read the guide posted earlier in this thread on checksums, but the asterisk was not always present. tons of md5's on db.etree.org do not have them (like this ones for the show in this example at http://db.etree.org/md5view.php?md5key=88419).

I guess my real question is whether this is a bug or an intentional choice. I don't think I'd like to edit hundreds of older .md5 files just to have them work with TLH, but if it's an error on my part or something, please let me know so I can continue to use this program, its awesome.

Thanks guys,
toaster
