#15 Zinf -- Application error


I received an error while using Zinf 2.1.... This appears
to be the last install for the Windows platform. The error
message text was:

The instruction at "0x1080195d" referenced memory
at "0x01faf000". The memory could not be "read".

Click on Ok to terminate the program
Click on Cancel to debug the program

I also have FreeAmp v2.1 which experiences the same
problem and gives the same error message. The error is
very repeatable. I can "fix" the error by deleteing the
metadatabase files but when they are being rebuilt the
problem occurs.

I am accessing my music off of an iRiver iHP-140 via
USB. The computer and device are USB 2.0 compliant. I
am able to play music off on the device as long as I
don't try to index the music on it. I have run scandisck
on the device and there are no detected problems with
the drive. I have also checked for fragmentation and
there are not significant amounts. (~1%) The version of
Windows is 2000 with service pack 4 and assorted
hotfixes installed. This is my development computer at
work so any "advice" to install any-NIX will be ignored.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, zhuang yu

    UPDATE: I started playing around today to narrow the scaope
    down a bit. I tracked the problem down to three "corrupted"
    mp3s in one of my folders. Just trying to play any one of
    these three files caused an error. I looked at the files and
    there was not any noticeable corruption. So I tried loading
    them into to FreeAmp v2.74-ish and they worked. At that
    point I tried reloading them into Zinf and the problem had
    been repaired. Perhaps some file information had gotten
    corrupted and FreeAmp replaced it with valid information. At
    any rate the problem is fixed. Ta.

    I'm also having the same problem - I really hate having to use
    anything but Freeamp. If there is a way we can fix this please
    shout! I've been converting a lot of users!
