Peter,
Just for test, I tried unattended mode and have run through 2 whole albums today without any interruption!

Hi Peter,
I feel your pain -
Good news : the restarts due to "unrecoverable" error have stopped. I have no idea why - I was away from home for two weeks and the problem has not occurred since I returned! Maybe I should leave more often... Wink
However, I still cannot get an entire album to play all the way through. After studying the problem, it seems to be completely random which error occurs, when, and for what track/album. The only apparent pattern is that the player rarely makes it past track #5, usually failing to cue it or going silent during.
You mentioned seeing these problems rarely on your main PC - are there some settings I should copy to try to see if they improve the reliability?

Peter,
Sorry for the late reply. This job thing keeps getting in the way...
I'll try to go in order:
     The WP error, I cannot recall if it was blank. I will note what it says next time I see it.
     Yes, in EAC the selection is "create image and cue file". Interesting, you note that the WP error seems to come with this type of file playback - this has been my experience also that it behaves worse (less reliable playback) with the image of the cd vs individual tracks.
     Regarding the "crashing", maybe my terminology is wrong. Everytime I leave the computer unattended with the player "going" (individual tracks selected or an image) I find it has restarted. This happens without exception if I do not shut the player down manually myself. Upon login I see the "Windows has recovered from an unexpected error". Is this one unique to just me? I would appreciate any input from anyone.
     I will try to recreate the problem when I get back home and make some notes on when it happens, and if it is repeatable/predictable. I haven't yet looked for patterns. I will send a .cue file next time.
Regarding "it all started" I am referring to these events collectively as "the problem". There may be many things actually happening, but I grouped them together as "the problem" (out of sequence playing,crashes of XXEngine3,reboots) . It starts with the wrong song playing vs the highlighted title in the playlist and ends with the computer restarting. I am sorry for not being more specific on this one.
     For sure the Windows updates have me suspicious!
     I realize these descriptions so far have very little value : I will take notes on the events of the next unscheduled landing as they happen and report back on this thread. Are there any files that XXHE creates that I can copy and send to you that will help identify what is happening?

Thanks!
Scott

Peter,
I am running 9u-16 and am having similar trouble as listed in this thread - "WP error", "no track given", and "engine 3 did not start" messages . The problem seems to be much worse when playing an album copied as an image of an entire CD rather than an album copied song by song. I'm running an NOS 1543 DAC, Vista Ultimate, and doing my pulls with EAC. I'll list below:
In all cases the computer "crashes" and restarts itself when left alone playing music. I.E. if I leave music playing and dont shut down the player manually, I get the "engine 3 did not start in the alotted time" message and the computer eventually restarts itself. I haven't actually witnessed this entire process yet, but the message appears after log in that an unexpected error had occurred.
Imaged CD's tracks play out of sequence. The player stops working after the "out of sequence" song is played. The correct song is displayed as playing, but you hear another. This happens just about every time. Stopping the player, and double clicking on the correct song title in the playlist usually sorts it out for awhile.
It seemed to start happening all at once after a week or so of no trouble with the last XXHE activation. Interestingly, this never happened before I activated my copy of Vista, and not on XP when I ran it. It could be coincidence, but the problem started immediately after I activated Vista through Microsoft and downloaded all the "updates".

Thanks in advance
Scott

6  Ultimate Audio Playback / XXHighEnd Support / Volume control in XP on: July 21, 2008, 09:37:59 pm
All,
Just activated today and I have noticed "yet" no way to change the volume of the output from the player in XP, 0.9u-16. I am running an NOS DAC directly to amplifier input, no preamp or attenuator.
Is there a way to adjust volume in the player in XP?

Thanks!
