I have a file with the following path :
I am parsing the path from a XML file and storing it in a variable called "path" in the form of "file://localhost/D:/bar/クレイジー・ヒッツ！/foo.abc"
Then, the following operations are being done :
path=path[17:] #to remove the file://localhost/ part from the path path=urllib.url2pathname(path) path=path.decode('utf8') '''to properly encode the path in case it has non-english characters'''
Now, when I run this code, I get the following error
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: u'D:\\Music\\Pink Floyd\\The Wall Disc 1\\5 - Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2.mp3'
I am using Python 2.7 on Windows 7
