Ver 0.2 MP3SLIXER released!

Fields Marshall has with ver 0.2 greatly improved my
MP3SLIXER ver 0.1, regarding MP3 IDv1 tags, Win2k
compability, enhanced DOS command line interface, and
file handling, which makes the Audiobook slicing a

MP3FIXER reads and analyses the mp3 files (MPEG 1,
Layer III only) bit by bit, and if it finds any
faulty frames it creates a copy of the original file
with the faulty frames removed.
Home with the flu (18-Jan-2001) , bored i started to
write this little program that solve a problem that a
lot of users of portable mp3 players experience!
Some of the mp3 that you download from xxx contains
errors. These errors are not that severe if you are
using a PC mp3 player (read WINAMP), due to its
massive processing power, it can handle the errors
(though they can certainly be heard!).
Portable mp3 players (i've got the immense Creative
Jukebox , nowadays pretty scratched from a close
encounter with the sidewalk asphalt, looking pretty
cool though :-?) are not that great to handle so
called frame errors, and at worst they can crash the
player (need to be reseted). But sometimes you don't
even notice the error even on a portable.
MP3FIXER does not fix bad sounding mp3, if it sounded
bad before it will probably sound bad after as well.
MP3FIXER only makes sure that the MPEG VER 1, Layer
III data format is correct.
MP3FIXER is not a commercial software (i don't think
i will fool anyone:-), it's closer to a small hack
(though that sounds almost to much as well). I.e. use
it at your own risk!
I have used it on around 50 faulty mp3 this day (not
that much?, well a wrote the prog. this day!) without
any problem. I used the Peter F. Smith MP3 utility
before and after using the MP3FIXER for verification.
I'm am sorry to say that i'm not an software or a mp3
expert, but i was inspired by Peter F. Smith MP3
and Predrag Supurovic's "MPEG Audio Compression
