  1. Re: Issue getting car (Toyota) to sort audio properly (yes using disk & track*s)

    Do you have the track numbers set properly in the metadata? I just got a new 4Runner too, and I copied WMA files to a thumb drive and they all show and play in the correct order.

    Hope this...
  2. Re: Extracting HiRes Music Files from DVD

    I'm one of those who recommends DVD Audio Extractor. I use it to rip all DVD and Blu-Ray music. Works well (not as good as a dBpoweramp DVD extractor would work, but since there isn't one of those...
  3. Re: CD Ripper: Send AccurateRip Results to Online Database when program is closing.

    But it would make more sense to send the results at the end of a ripping session, so today's results are sent immediately. Otherwise they may sit in the queue for weeks until the next time something...
  4. Re: Can dbPoweramp rip multi-channel DVDs?

    If you are asking about DVD Audio Extractor, yes it can.
  5. Re: Can dbPoweramp rip multi-channel DVDs?

    DVD Audio Extractor

    http://www.dvdae.com/

    It works well and can rip DVD, DVD-Audio, Blu-Ray, etc.

  6. Re: Quick Boxset Artwork Question (help?)

    Pretty much (but I'd be lying if I said I was 100% consistent on these things -- sometimes I just use whatever pops up).

  7. Re: Quick Boxset Artwork Question (help?)

    If the box is a collection of individual albums (such as a dozen Springsteen albums), I would used the correct album art for each CD in the box.

    I generally used the box set image for all disks in...

    Re: Compression Level Audio Quality

    I'm not sure what article schmidj was referring to (no link), but I found this:

    It shows that higher levels do keep compressing better...
  9. Re: Recommended software for ripping DVD-A discs to hi-res AIFF files?

    Take a look at DVD Audio Extractor (DVDAE). http://www.dvdae.com/

    I used it to rip all of my DVD-Audio disks and many of my Blu-Ray Audio or Blu-Ray concert disks (not all because they didn't used...
  10. Re: Ripping errors on perfectly clean discs

    I second the idea of trying multiple drives.

    Also, just because it looks clean, doesn't mean it really is. I have had good luck cleaning disks with soap and water, and having much better results...

    Re: Forced Reboot after Install

    That's better than rebooting someone's machine when they don't want it rebooted.

    Re: Forced Reboot after Install

    But it is definitely not clear that it will reboot your system in 40 seconds without any chance to abort it. This really, really needs to be much clearer and perhaps even make not-rebooting...

    Forced Reboot after Install

    After installing the 21-day version of Video Converter, upgrading the Beta, the installer forced a reboot of my system. There was no apparent way to tell it to stop (to let me reboot after cleanly...
  15. Re: CD in perfect mint conditions but CD ripper reports bad frames

    The other thing that can make a huge difference is to wash the CD. I'll take a CD, wash it under warm water with Ivory soap (you really don't want any perfumes or oils!), and the dry it gently (I use...
  16. Re: A heartfelt "Thank you!" to dbPoweramp devs

    I would like to second those thoughts. Without dBpoweramp, my digital music experience would have been too painful to contemplate.

    Thanks Spoon!

    Re: Maximum SQ from a CD? 44.1/16? or ???

    Might as well give up on this. All I have been trying to do is get people to test to see what they can actually hear before wasting money on high-res audio. Sampling theory is irrelevant to that...

    Re: Maximum SQ from a CD? 44.1/16? or ???

    Of course sound engineers need more headroom, but that's irrelevant to the discussion on listening.

    This thread, like almost every thread where this comes up, devolved into people thinking that...

    Re: Maximum SQ from a CD? 44.1/16? or ???

    None the less, the specifications of Red Book CD's still exceed the hearing capabilities of human beings. The engineers at Sony and Phillips did a great job designing a spec that wasn't just "good...

    Re: Maximum SQ from a CD? 44.1/16? or ???

    I should have been clearer.

    I'm saying that if you take the brand new 96/24 recording, and convert it to 44.1/16 you won't hear any difference. The human ear isn't capable of hearing the...

    Re: Maximum SQ from a CD? 44.1/16? or ???

    Take that 96/24 copy of Bitches Brew and convert it to 44.1/16 (standard CD resolution). Then do some ABX testing (foobar has an add-in) and see if you can tell the difference. Odds are the 9/24...

    Re: Maximum SQ from a CD? 44.1/16? or ???

    Before starting to spend big bucks on HD audio, you should take a sound test to see if you can actually hear the difference. CD audio is already better than what you can theoretically hear, so buying...

    Re: Re-rips going on twelve hours, now.

    Sometimes you just can't rips something accurately. If you can't hear any issues with a burst mode rip of that track, relax and enjoy life. It's time to move on.

    But check the surface of the disk...
  24. Re: dBpoweramp Video Converter Discussions

    A welcome addition. I haven't really needed to use it yet, but one thing I did notice was that when you start the converter it displays a file open dialog with this title:
