So what kind of preferences have you selected in the Preferences menu ? If you select "same folder as input file" for the output, does it work ? What if you add a single MP3 instead of a directory ?
Comment 2 cornel panceac 2009-01-13 03:43:19 EST
no, the output is in a different directory. 
as i said, it creates the directory structure (artist/album) but not the file itself.
however, after reporting this bug, i've tried to do it on another filesystem and, as strange as it may seem, it worked! 

i'll test more later, when i'll be back from work. 
and it's the same if i choose a dir or a single file.
Comment 3 cornel panceac 2009-01-13 12:09:21 EST
on the same file system where i've seen the original bug (that is the /home partition), i've created another directory. the buggy place is /home/guzu/work.usbplayer/converted. the new dir is /home/guzu/converted, and it can create files there. after the conversion is done, i'll try again the buggy place.

now it works where it didn't worked before. maybe the config file from a previous version was not "acceptable" for the newer version and changing the path once, forced soundconverter to rewrite the config file in the correct format. i have no other idea :)
Comment 5 Denis Leroy 2009-01-14 05:22:34 EST
Hmmm, well there *are* bugs in Soundconverter :-), so it's just a matter of figuring out what went wrong here. Possibly it could be the config file. I'm going to close this as WORKSFORME for now, but feel free to reopen if you find out more about this. Thanks!

ok, assuming this bug will not hit anyone else, let it be closed :)
thank you too.
