    Using GD3 in Batch Ripper

    I have purchased a 1000 lookups from GD3.

    I have entered my username and password, but when I go to rip any CD at all, nothing happens.

    GD3 is working for me in CD Ripper.

    How do I get it working for me in Batch Ripper?

    Thanks

    Gd3 has a check Mark at the top? Does batch ripper get metadata from freedb?

      yes and yes

      However, I spoke to GD3 and it seems that I can't use my original account, so they're going to transfer in my lookup credits to a new account which I will make specifically for batch ripping use with dbpoweramp. I'll see if this helps, but when I type in my user name and password in batch ripper it doesn't notify me that the username/password is correct. I could type in afslflansfna as my username and afiasofosano as my password and it accepts it without telling me "user/name & or password is incorrect". Should I not care about this? I will find out later today if when my user name and password is switched to the one I made for dbpoweramp use, if this resolves the problem, but in the meantime, I guess I just want to cover all bases.

      Thanks!

        Only with a valid username and password will it begin to lookup, there is no notification of such at point of entry.

            On the metadata options page, click the button next to gd3

              I have similar issue. When I
              Select dbpoweramp I see Release 17.4 reference registered
              then select cd ripper, menu, retrieve Metadata from: all the items are greyed out
              if I select Menu Active providers I see: PerfectMeta, Cache, GD3, Discogs, MusicBrainz, freedb all checked.

              How do I enable so retrieve meta data from is not greyed out?
              ... and then where do I select GD3 so I can enter my GD3 login and password?

                Re: Using GD3 in Batch Ripper

                After more debug, More info:
                To Install dBpoweramp I clicked on the link in my registration email which took me to my Registration Retrieval webpage then I clicked on the Install Registered Software for dBpoweramp Referencee R17.4 (family pack) and installed dBpoweramp.
                Since I wanted to Nimbie batch rip I then when to the page:
                dbpoweramp.com/batch-ripper.htm
                and followed the download steps:
                1. I did NOT click on the Purhase dBpoweramp Reference link since it was already installed.
                2. I did click on the Install Batch Ripper link
                3. I did click on the Nimbie Batch Ripper Driver V link.

                After this Win10 pro Apps&Features reports:
                dBpowermp Release 17.4 83.0MB
                dBpoweramp Batch Ripper Release 1.5 2.22GB
                dBpoweramp Batch Ripper Nimbie Loader Release 2 2.19MB
                dBpoweramp Music Converter Releaes 14.4 15.6MB

                Since Music Converter was an older revision I guessed that either batch step 2 or 3 above might have created an older version of Music Converter.
                So I uninstalled dBpoweramp and reinstalled. That did not change anything (stuff still greyed out, Music converter still 14.4).
                When I tried to use dBpoweramp Music Converter uninstall in Win 10 Apps&features it reports an error:
                C:\Windows\system32\SpoonUninstall.exe
                Windows cannot find C:\Windows\system32\SpoonUninstall.exe. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

                In the Win10 start menu dBpoweramp and dBpoweramp Music Converter are listed in seperate folders
                and one of the lines in the dBpoweramp Music Converter list is:
                Register dBpoweramp.
                So I am guessing that either step 2 or step 3 created a trial version of a component of dBpoweramp which is why I can't access metadata providers.
                So currently
                I have a Batch Converter shortcut to "C:\Program Files\dBpoweramp\DMCFileSelector.exe"
                and a dBpoweramp Batch Converter shortcut to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Illustrate\dBpoweramp\DMCFileSelector.exe"
                It seems that the Program Files (x86) shortcut is likely wrong since it is in the list with a shortcut to register dBpoweramp.

                Exe files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Illustrate\dBpoweramp
                Batch Ripper.exe
                CDGrab.exe
                CoreConverter.exe
                dBConfig.exe
                DMCFileSelector.exe
                GetPopupInfo.exe
                hdcd.exe
                MusicConverter.exe
                WindowsXPRemovePropHandler.exe

                Exe files in C:\Program Files\dBpoweramp
                Batch Ripper.exe
                CDGrab.exe
                CoreConverter.exe
                dBConfig.exe
                dBpoweramp-Thunk32.exe
                DMCFileSelector.exe
                ffmpeg-lgpl.exe
                GetPopupInfo.exe
                hdcd.exe
                MusicConverter.exe

                I tried to follow illustrate dBpoweramp installation directions exactly and it has created this mess. Please help me fix it.
                Is it as simple as changing the start menu links to point to C:\Program Files\dBpoweramp and to delete the C:\Program Files (x86)\Illustrate\dBpoweramp? Or does the registry also have to be updated?

                Again, thank you in advance for your support/patience, please help me clean this up.

                  This then reinstall:

                  ...also how to do a full reset of dBpoweramp? (if dBpoweramp crashes for some reason) Where does dBpoweramp save its files / settings? It is installed to c:\Program Files\Illustrate\dBpoweramp or c:\Program Files (x86)\Illustrate\dBpoweramp The 64 bit version of dBpoweramp is installed to: c:\Program Files\dBpoweramp It

                    Re: Using GD3 in Batch Ripper

                    Hi Spoon,
                    Thank you for the directions!
                    I did the uninstall/reset per the note at the link you provided and it cleared out the registry, illustrate, and dbpoweramp directories.
                    I then reinstalled the registered version of dbpoweramp per my registration email, installed the batch riper, and nimbie driver.
                    All programs are now in the dbpoweramp directory nothing in illustrate so all looks good. Program revisions are:
                    Batch Ripper.exe 4.0.0.0
                    CDGrap.exe 17.4.0.5
                    CoreConverter.exe 17.4.0.5
                    dBConfig.exe 17.4.0.5
                    dBpoweramp-Thunk32.exe
                    DMCFileSelector.exe 17.4.0.5
                    ffmpeg-lgpl.exe
                    GetPopupInfo.exe 17.4.0.5
                    hdcd.exe

                    However when I run DBpoweramp batch ripper which runs CD ripper, select the CD Ripper green menu, select Retrieve Metadata From, everything is still greyed out.
                    When I select the green menu, select Active Providers then Perfect Meta dBpoweramp cache, Discogs, GD3, MusicBrainz, freedb are all checked.
                    So from this is gd3 enabled? I have purchased gd3 tags and have a login and password. Where/how do i enter it?

                    Thanks again for your support!

                      Batch Ripper does not use CD Ripper for metadata, click the metadata button in Batch Ripper its self.
