Hi i am using the following script but it isnt working out right for me i have my music folder with a folder called adele which has 2 folders inside namely 19 and 21 now 21 has 2 folders inside that named cd1 and cd2.

When i convert i get 2 folders called 1 and 2 then all the tracks from 19 not in any folder just in the new destination folder, can you help in where i went wrong

Thanks

You mean it is trimming the artist? you can then try:

[TRIMFIRSTFOLDER][TRIMFIRSTFOLDER][origpath]\[origfilename][][]

Try:

[origpath]\[origfilename]

and set the output folder to:

\\BROXI\Music\Converted files for apple lossless\

What result do you get?

\\BROXI\Music\Adele\Adele - 19\1\01 - Daydreamer.flac

\\BROXI\Music\Converted files for apple lossless\Music\Adele\Adele - 19\1\01 - Daydreamer.m4a

Seems to add this extra folder in, instead of just converting the folders across

[TRIMFIRSTFOLDER][origpath]\[origfilename][]

Should do as you require
