Sonicstage crashes when importing mp3

Hi,


I have used Sonicstage 3.3 and Sonicstage 3.4 for this, either not succesfully..

I have ripped 40 of my CDS with Audiograbber (lame encoder). They are ripped in 320KBPS and in Joint Stereo.
I have edited the ID3 tag on all of the mp3's and also the filenames, so it all would please my wants :).
Now im trying to import those mp3's to Sonicstage (i've tried with 3.3 and 3.4).
It works for the majority of the CDS, but there are some it wont import.
Instead it crashes and gives me the following errormessage:

I have also tested on 3 different pcs, the same cds crash on all pcs.

First i thought maybe there was an IRQ conflict, but it wasnt. And testing on three different PC's ruled that out. Have anyone else experienced the same?

Help is warmly appreciated!

I can't offer any advice, but I do get the same error message with a particular podcast I imported into SS a couple of weeks back. SS crashes every time my cursor lands on the wretched filename, which means I can't even delete the bug**r.

I did post a query about this on the forum then, but got no response.

Same issue here (at least on SS3.4). Rebuilt my PC, a couple of weeks ago so installed SS3.4 and imported my music library, no problems.

Tried to 2 new mp3s a week or so later, and now get the same error message (sometimes the app just disappears), when the app tries to import either of the two files (either by rescanning the music directory or trying to add them individually). Even tried uninstalling and reinstalling, makes no difference.

Seems odd that both would cause this if it was something intrinsic in the files themselves (given I had previously imported 3,500 without a hitch), but I have imported others since OK.

Anyone have any ideas?

I am having the same problem with my on-the-building mp3 library. SS 3.4 always crashes at some point. A one-by-one album approach works, but I can't be bothered. Is everyone using lame? Maybe an advanced (therefore not supported) lame parameter is the source of the problem? I doubt it, but still...

After some research i found out that removing the ID3 tag on the CD's SS wouldnt import, helped. Now it works and SS doesnt crash (or just disappear).

Quite ironic since i've used soo many hours editing the ID3 tag after my own fancy..Just to remove em again, hah! Oh, well i can actually listen to the music now tho..

I get this when i have a large library 60gig+ of cd's, but it always finishes what it is doing when the message comes up, if it is still working, dont click on the message and it should finish what it is doing, when i click on the message the s/s program closes and when i open it up again it is fine, a bit annoying but managable!
 
yea i had that problem, it will let you transer audio alreay imported into the libary, you just cant transfer new audio.
talked to sony, no help at all, i mean this must be a recouring problem, but i got a new computer installed it on the new pc and it works fine, my other pc still doesnt work [sonicstage] :(

Had the same problem with SS 3.3, and the solution for me came from what I read in a forum.

Try and see if this helps, although I have to admit it's hard to understand:

- In My Computer, Advanced Options select Performance and in DEP tab exclude omgjbox.exe

Hope it helps

Regards

I've only been using sonicstage for a few weeks with no problems and last night the same thing happened to me after trying to import a music file.
After two re-installs was still having problems, it seemed to be trying to import the same file every time I restarted the program and crashed each time.
I went into My Music folder and delete the music file it was trying to import.
Not the ideal solution but Sonicstage is working again.
