[X] MP3Tag crashes when trying to retag a strange file


#1

I experienced a bug two days ago ; I already reported it to Florian via Email, but I describe it here too.

It comes apparently from a corrupted file that I've downloaded with Azureus, among others.
This file is unplayable, undeletable (neither in Windows Explorer nor MP3Tag) and the balloon tip in Explorer shows no information, I can't even use Unlocker to erase it.
But it's present, I can see its size, its tags, its length...
MP3Tag v2.40 crashes when I try to retag the file, and shows me an error message when I try to delete it ("Cannot delete file", then "Can't delete the selected files").
It also can't be relaunched without crashing... I need to restart Windows.
With the latest build (v2.40d), it still crashes but I can relaunch it just after without any problem.
I'd like to send you the file in question, but I can't ; its can't be used, moved, deleted...

Can you send me the error log file Mp3tagError.log that it created? Have you also contacted the Azureus developer?


#3

Do you think it could be a download problem?

I can't find the error log...


#4

If the application that created this file was Azureus and the file show this weird behavior, it sounds very reasonable to me to ask whether it's a known problem or not.

You can find it at %APPDATA%\Mp3tag (just paste this path to 'Start > Run...')


#5

Edit : Okay, I will contact a developer tomorrow.

Concerning the error log, I'm trying to get MP3Tag to crash, but it doesn't want anymore.
It's perfectly stable now... (-_-)


#6

I mark this as "No Bug" now and re-open it if needed.
