View Full Version : cd.ini and bulk loading track names

02-07-2008, 09:52 PM
I see a reference to cdplayer.ini under the meta options, but I can't find any documentation on it.

On a possibly related note, I have CDs with dozens of tracks, and I have the track listings in a text file. Is there some way to point the ripper at that file for the track names, and maybe other tags?

Thanks for all the support here folks - I'm having a blast and feeding both freedb and All Media Guide, not to mention AccurateRip. I'm in the middle of ripping the complete collection of Bach Organ works.

Bad form to follow up on one's post, but I see the ripper *writes* cdplayer.ini, but doesn't *read* from it, and, in fact, overwrites the changes I make.

Even worse form to double-follow-up. Here's what I've found:

Put in some information for the CD, including one track name - it doesn't matter what name you put it - it's just a place keeper. Rip the one track. Disable all the meta input except cdplayer.ini and exit.

Edit cdplayer.ini, being aware that there are bare <CR> charcters, so use a good editor - I use Epsilon. Go to the end of the file and put the track information there. Restart the ripper, and voila!
