Soundconverter 3.0.0 hangs while converting FLAC to MP3 to an USB device

Bug Description

When I asked SoundConverter to convert a bunch of .flac files to .mp3 with the destination folder on a mounted USB device (Sony Digital Media Player NWZ-E384) it hangs endlessly, perhaps waiting for Godot.

Doing exactly the same but with a local hard disk folder as destination everything works fine.

See attachment for the program's settings.


- Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS 64-bit
- Unity desktop
- SoundConverter 3.0.0
- 16 GB RAM

Maybe the destination folder is not writable?

Could you please retry the convertion, launching "soundconverter -d" in a console and paste here the output?
