lame-tag error

i'm trying to rip my entire cd collection and encountered a problem:
i have two drives. when I start ripping a cd while the other drive is already in use i get the error message: "Error updating LAME-tag frame: can't open file for reading and writing"
it also locks the cd drive that was already running. i have to restart my pc to open it again :/
any solutions? thx

in my exp, I found it wasn't a good idea to do what ur doing. so I stopped.

in general, it seems that the interfaces for drives and the software that uses them aren't robust enough to handle it.

BUG #1 = Winamp skips short tracks
Wish #1 = Multiple Column Sorting
Wish #2 = Add TCMP/Compilation editing

Hi euphoricWool,

More details please. What was/is the other drive in use doing? Are you using 1 instance of Winamp? Have you tried using 2 (1 for each drive)?

Winamp v5.9.1.10029 - Quinto Black CT v3.6 skin
Windows 11 Home 64-bit v22H2 desktop - Logitech Z906 5.1 speaker system
