View Full Version : Ripping to Ogg
I recently began using Jet Audio 6.0. I have ripped several CDs to OGG format. Jet Audio creates an new file folder in the output path I specified and the CD files are nicely ripped to OGG files. I am able to move the OGG files as needed. The problem I have encountered is that I am unable to delete the folder that is created by Jet Audio. When I try to delete this folder, it returns the message "Cannot delete file. Cannot read from the source file or disk." I am using XP Pro. Now I have a bunch of folders that cannot be deleted. Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?
Sorry, posted in wrong place
You need to close JetAudio program then delete them. If the program remains open XP thinks the folders are still in use.
Close JetAudio, delete folders and restart JetAudio to play music.
Even with Jet Audio closed and the computer rebooted, the folders won't delete.
No probs, moved. The problem you're having is not caused by jetAudio, is caused by your opperative system. I have seen this only in NTFS formatted drives.

In short words, what most likely happended was that the folders you created had names that are recognized correctly by Windows, either because a system reserved name was used, or a space (or other symbol) is mysplaced in the file name/folder (like a blank space after a extension).
If thats the case, just open a command window, use CD to go to your folder, and DIR /X to view the short name of the folder. Then use RD with the short name to delete the folder.
To avoid this problem in the future, just be careful of the names you're picking for your folder. Just avoid using too much periods (and spaces after them), and using reserved names such as 'lpt1'
Thanks! Your information and advice were exactly correct. With your information I was able to delete the files and now I can avoid the problem in the future.
You have been a great help.
No problems. Hope you don't bump with that problem again, that's one very annoying NTFS bug.
