    Batch Ripper and Nimbie USB+ on Windows 11

    I made most of the mistakes mentioned in several of the community threads. Community answers have been very helpful - thank you!

    Here is a summary in case it can help others:
    1. Download and install the Acronova 1.1.3 driver manually (clears all warnings in Windows device manager)
    2. Download and install the Acronova 1.3.0.2 R5 QQripper app (needed to support manual rip using dBcdgrab - do not run QQripper with Batch Ripper)
    3. Purchase and install dbPowerAmp reference (trial is insuffient for batch ripper)
    4. Download and install dbPowerAmp Batch Ripper R4 https://www.dbpoweramp.com/batch-ripper.htm (be sure to install to "\program files\dbPowerAmp")
    5. Download and install dbPowerAmp Nimbie Batch Ripper Driver v6 (be sure to install to "\program files\dbPowerAmp")
    6. Configure Batch Ripper to use Nimbie loading (don't use Auto eject / Manual load)

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the detailed step by step. I have the same setup, Win 11 and Nimbie USB, but the problem I'm running into is in tagging the files. The Batch Ripper will work fine ripping and applying the album information, but if I don't use GD3, I won't get album artwork. Do you have any issues related to obtaining album artwork?

    I'm wondering if I borked the install and need to start over. (Downloaded some old version from Nimbie and had to do some manual updating)

      I am about to fork over the money for a Nimbie. I have 3000 CDs. Did you correct the problem about album art and GD3?
      When I'm done, I could offer other people a service to rip, or I can loan out the Nimbie.

        I bought the Nimbie and am ripping my 3,000 CDs. MAKE SURE YOU FOLLOW OP BryanO's ADVICE COMPLETELY. I followed the procedure in dBpoweramp web page for using the Nimbie, and either didn't find or skipped the instructions, A) Download and install dbPowerAmp Nimbie Batch Ripper Driver v6, and, B) Configure Batch Ripper to use Nimbie loading (don't use Auto eject / Manual load)--> this means select "Nimbie" not "Auto eject / Manual load." I spent hours trying to get this all working, until I followed OP's instructions completely. This is all really great!!!

          I get all the way to B)Configure Batch Ripper to use Nimbie loading.
          I, for the life of me cannot find where this is!
          When I loaded Driver v6 I didn't get a configure window.
          Any ideas?

            You have to install Batch Ripper first, then install the Nimbie driver to the same location.

              Ok, uninstalled everything then reinstalled. It's working but not ripping in the format I would like nor is it ending up on my external drive. Sorry, I wish I was a little more technically savvy. I feel like I'm getting really close though!

                Select your ripping format and select the path where you want your files to go here:

                  In Batch Ripper click Edit next to the profile, it shows CD Ripper, where you change settings then close the program.

                    It’s a miracle! I am up and running. Thanks to all in this thread especially those who calmly responded to my questions.

                      Is there a way to batch rip without using meta data?

                        Yes if you set naming to [batchid]\[track] to create unique filenames.

                          Thanks for the suggestion but Batch Ripper rejects the disc with the message No Meta Data. Sorry for the repeated questions but I'm new to this. Thanks in advance!

                          I figured it out. One last question...Is there a way to dynamically create a file name for each disc in the batch?

                            As you have likely figured out, there is an option to not reject if there is no metadata.

                            What would the filename be?

                              Sorry to hijack this thread - my configuration issue is that when batch ripping, the location of the resulting files is not what I have configured in dbPoweramp. They end up in the default Windows "Music" library. If I rip manually, running dbPoweramp directly, the configured location is honored. Any suggestions on how to fix this? Thanks!
