CDBXP cannot handle invalid M3U files (and a forum bug, too)

Recommended Posts

Guest fero_without_password


sorry for not writing into the Bugs forum, but I can't get my new password sent to my e-mail address because of a mysqli error: "Data too long for column 'user_newpasswd' at row 1 [1406]".

OK, back to topic: When you try to add an M3U file which contains non-existent files, the program crashes. You can still go on and burn something after having clicked away the error message, but I don't think it's quite stable anymore (i.e. hourglass cursor instead of arrow).

When you drag'n'drop an invalid M3U from the file list box, first nothing happens, only the cursor changes to the hourglass. But when you click the "add" button (German: Hinzuf├╝gen) afterwards, the program crashes. When you add the M3U directly via the "add" button, the program crashes immediately.

Perhaps you might not consider it a bug (why the heck does this guy have non-existent files in a playlist?!), but it happened after I moved a file from one folder to another without saving the list again.

Greetings -- Andy aka fero

P.S.: Program version (just downloaded)

Actually, CDBXP does check if the file actually exists before adding it to the layout. Maybe you can find a different cause for the problem?

In any case you should try the upcoming version to be released soon, maybe that's already an improvement.

The problem only existed when there were these files in the list that do not exist. When I removed the non-existent files from the list (it was my first guess), I could add the M3U file without any problems. The error message seems pretty weird to me and I can't think about a reason, because it is not like "file not found" or anything similar. I think you understand the message because you are German, too, afaik.

Here is what CDBXP said when it crashed:

The missing files are the ones starting with the drive letter D: (the second entry and three entries near the end). The last entry works fine, although it's very similar to the non-existent file entries.
