I am using the latest prd release: foobar0.9.6.1.

I have ripped a bunch of my CDs to FLAC using EAC. When I view these CDs in foobar, the majority look fine. A minority, however, are displayed with every track being repeated: there is one version for the FLAC file and a second version for the WAV file. The FLAC files play fine, whereas when foobar tries to play one of the WAV files it generates an error dialog with a message like
Unable to open item for playback (Object not found):
"F:\media\audio_flac\Classical\8_Baroque\b_Misc\1994 ~ Biber Finger Neruda Vejvanovsky\Biber Finger Neruda Vejvanovsky.cue" / index: 1
Sometimes, the "Object not found" is replaced with "Sharing violation".

Now, there are no WAV files in the directory--EAC's default configuration to delete them after ripping is in force.

So why does foobar think that there are WAV files in there? Well, I assume that it has to do with the cue sheet that is also in the directory along with the flac files. In EAC, the first action that i do before starting the FLAC rip is to generate a CUE sheet:
Action --> Create CUE Sheet --> Current Gap Settings
I stick with EAC's default choice (Append Gaps To Previous Track, which I understand is simply an alias for Multiple WAV Files with Gaps... (Noncompliant)).

EAC uses .wav file estensions inside the cue sheet, for instance
FILE "01 ~ H. I. Franz von Biber (1644-1704) ~ Sonata No. 4 in C major for Trumpet, Strings & Basso Continuo.wav" WAVE

But why do most of my albums not have this double display and error dialog issue? What went wrong with those albums that do have this issue?

I presume that my cue sheet somehow got mixed up, at least that is what this thread
http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index....showtopic=64775
would lead me to suspect. But I have no clue as to what exactly is wrong.

Thanks in advance for any help that you can offer.

Why would you create a CUE sheet for files you are about to delete anyway? Of course you'll get a "not found error" since the CUE contains the paths to the wav files you just deleted.
I think what you want to do is to create a CUE for the output flac files, i'm sure there's an option somewhere in EAC to do that.

If you have the albums stored in one file per track anyway, and keep the cue sheets only for archiving or whatever reason, you can also simply exclude *.CUE file type in Preferences.

So that way I can perfectly reconstruct the CD if I ever want to. Here, I would convert the FLAC files to WAV, and then use these WAV files plus the cue sheet to reconstruct the CD.

The workflow that I described (create a cue sheet from EAC that is for the WAV files, then do a rip to FLAC files) is what I thought all the guides are telling me to do! For example:
http://h33tfr33sp33k.h33t.com/index.php?topic=5819.0

Indeed, this example of a cue sheet
http://wiki.hydrogenaudio.org/index.php?ti..._and_Cue_Sheets
also shows WAV files inside it, just like what I have.

Then how come the majority of my albums (all of which have these WAV cue sheets) are correctly displayed?

OK, I just found out that if under File --> Preferences --> Media Library I tell fb2k to exclude *.cue, then it removes all of the duplicate entries.

But the question remains: why do only some of my albums have this duplicate listing problem, while others do not?

I assume that it must be an issue with my cue sheets for the ones with duplicate listings. In my next reply below, I will post the entire cue sheet for one of my albums which has duplicate listings.

OK, below is the entire cue sheet for one of my albums which has duplicate listings. If anyone can spot an issue with this cue sheet, I would be most grateful.
