This is very confusing

When i scan a disc and it gets metadata from discogs i am unable to go to discogs and find that same information using advanced search, no it's not there, zilch

So come on please tell me how DBpoweramp can find the info in discogs but i cant find it myself in discogs

I am adding my releases to discogs, i want the magic password :)

Thanks

Perhaps the discogs website accesses a different database to the one accessed by dBpoweramp.

Discogs has no CD lookup based on TOC, so we have to lookup using artist album name.

Why not email/call Discogs to ask?!
