Easy Lp To Mp3 Locks Up

Question

While using LP to MP3 Assistant I am consistently having a problem in step 2 while seperating tracks on a clip captured from an LP. Sstep 1 works fine and captures the files to the hdd. In step 2 you can seperate 2 to 4 tracks and the application locks up. Usually, after seperating track 2 or 3 the application will freeze for about 15 sec. then restart, once you get to tracks 3 or 4 it will freeze and not come back. Windows 7 says it is not responding.

 

I opened a ticket with Roxio and received a reply suggesting I defrag my hdd. I did that and changed my page file from system managed to 2046-4000. Same problem happening in the same place. I don't recall having this problem when the PC was Windows XP. That PC had a toasted power supply so it has been replaced with a new HP running Win 7.

 

Suggested next steps?

Update. I can take the .wav file created in step 1 of LP Assistant and load into Sound Editor. Once in Sound Editor I can seperate all tracks and save the file, however I can't use the music service to assign track names and other things like alblum cover. Same freeze problem accurs when using LP Assistant. Didn't do this when using Windows XP.

Hi Jim,

 

The only problem I have is with the LP Assistant. This AM I used control panel to remove the Roxio software and then did a new install. Now, it still freezes after seperating a couple of tracks but if I wait long enough it will unfreeze and I can seperate additional tracks. Of course I used update tools to check for HP and MS updates but didn't find any new ones. I also turned off real time protection but the problem still persist.

Jim,

 

What do you mean test with another source?

 

Thanks for the tip I added my signature.

 

If I may, where did you get the mp3 files? Try also a different source, perhaps from a different mp3 disc or from a download. Have you tried the same thing with a different type of file? wav, mp3 with different bit rates, etc?

Good news, of sorts. By using Jim's suggestion of dragging in the .wav file and using step 2 to seperate tracks - it worked!! That is the good news, the bad news is that I have to quit LP Assistant after capturing the file, reopen the application, drag the stored file back into LP Assistant, go to step 2 and complete project. It works, but adds additional steps that should not be required if the application was working correctly.

 

Thanks for the help to get me this far, keep thinking of how I can use the application as intended.

I prefer to capture music using "Capture from Sound Card". After you capture the music and press stop. a window will open and give you some options including working with Sound Editor to split the tracks into clips and to burn from there.

 

Try it, I think you'll like it.

sknis,

 

I tried that, but it doesn't use the net to tag the data so I didn't go all the way through the process. It did capture and allow me seperate tracks but I have to manually add track tags.

 

Jim,

 

The answer is YES I do what the $50 application to work as intended. When I was using Win XP I had purchased the Microsoft application Audio Plus and for capturing LPs it worked fine - all the time. I have 100s of LPs to convert and additional steps add untold additional hours to capture them all. And the fact that Roxio worked fine under XP implies it does work as intended, just not under Win 7.

From Lp and Tape Assistant, after you have split the clips into separate tracks, you have the option to get the audio tags. Remember that the on-line data base needs to be populated with the information (by someone) or it can't identify the music.

What happens if you do this?

I can't get that far, the application locks up while I am trying to split the tracks from the clip created in Step 1. When I used the app on Win XP I got the tag data from the internet.

 

I just tried again to drap an audio clip into LP Assistant and the application is locked up as I write, after splitting the first track of 10 on the clip.

 

Yesterday I used LP Assistant to capture an LP. I then closed LP Assistant and opened Sound Editor and import the file, split the tracks and export into Windows Media Player so I could get the track tags. I had to edit the tags and add albulm name and artist name while in Sound Editor.

I think it would be a good idea to run a Repair on your 2010 install.

 

If you have the disc, throw it in, it will give you the option.

 

If it is a download (of course you were prudent and made a disc) start the install and it will give you the option.

 

Make sure you have followed the Prep Steps so it works right!

 

Test it out before you reapply the updates.
