As can probably be determined from the title, it has been a while since I gone digging into replacing the old dBPowerAmp. I was running r3-beta6 (from July 2005) on W2K. I really do not use that box anymore. I bring it up when I need something off of it. In any event, I upgraded the CD Ripper software, as I had a purchase registration for it. But, I don't see any registration info for dBPowerAmp. So, I did a registration lookup and there is nothing for dBPowerAmp.

I'm assuming that PerfectTunes is the replacement for dBPowerAmp. Yes? If so, how do I go about upgrading my old dBPowerAmp to PerfectTunes?

Thanks

PerfectTUNES is not the replacement, it supplements dBpoweramp.

That I did not know, since I do not see dBPowerAmp being listed as a product on the product web page. Maybe I need to be a little more specific. The version that I installed was from this file: dBpowerAMP-r3-beta6.exe Within it is the music player and the My Music Collection programs. I do not see any of that listed as available for purchase/upgrade.

I had already gone there. It only showed the purchase reference that I already had for dBpoweramp Music Converter & CD Ripper.

It has been like 14.5 years since I obtained the original r2 version. So, color me confused as to what is going on currently.

Ah the Music Player, we discontinued it over 10 years ago, here is the details for it:

The mirror link should still be active.

What about My Music Collection? Has that been replaced with PerfectTunes? If yes, is there an upgrade path, or do I need to start over?

I told you it had been a while. :eek:

No, PerfectTUNES shows the tracks but will not play them.

Thanks, but that isn't the question that I asked:

So, what has replaced My Music Collection? What I have, ver R3-beta6, is almost 14 years old. I can't find anything on the website that is anything like the old My Music Collection.
