  1. Re: Extra folders for a single disc created on conversion

    I use maxlength code in my naming string to make sure nothing is too long:

    Re: Another dynamic (?) naming problem

    It looks like you are climbing the learning curve well at this point and are on your way to finalizing a ripping/naming process that works for you.

    not sure what you mean about commas. there are no commas in the naming strings I recommended. Do you mean how a comma is handled if you have a folder in windows, named, "Beatles, The" I just...

    Re: various sorts of missing tracks.

    are these missing tracks random (that is maybe track 2 and track 8). Or are they the last tracks on the CD. If the latter, maybe you're not scrolling down to see these tracks on your ripper screen?

    Re: various sorts of missing tracks.

    I've never seen the first problem in ripping over 5000 CDs. Regarding the second question, yes, you always want to include the track number as part of the file name. This way you could have two...

    Re: Power Pack Discontinued

    I've probably got it somewhat wrong, but generally it was an older "purchase option" for CD ripper/converter that wasn't as full service as the "reference" version.

    no, that is not correct whether old versions or new versions. my dbpa takes up 88MB, not counting any small registry files. Something is wrong. Maybe there is a subfolder in your dbpa folder that...

    Re: Volume normalizing

    To be clear, it's not just "burning the values into the metadata". This process is permanently CHANGING the actual audio of the file.

    correct. for the first step (adding the ReplayGain tags to the metadata), then you can run this on all your files at once. It doesn't matter if some are mp3 and some are FLAC. It is the...

    what do you mean it doesn't matter. What format are the current files and what format are you going to make them in this conversion (e.g., mp3, FLAC, etc.). If you're making all of these files the...
