    Re: Asset on QNAP stops working after a time. (Solved)

    My fairly old (8 years or so) QNAP pretty much comes to a halt when using the QNAP backup app to back up the drives to an external USB drive. It takes forever to save files from dBpoweramp, or for...

    Re: Custom Naming

    I've saved my naming strings and other settings as a text file, so I have them in the event I need to reinstall. Very useful when I switch to a newer computer.

    Re: Custom Naming

    For a better understanding of the string editing language used here to make the filenames, look in the dBpoweramp help file for custom naming. If you've installed the software on your C drive and...
  5. Re: configuring keeps saying use a different key disc

    Not clear from your description, you are using a SATA to USB adapter? It is possible some won't work properly, although I've used several different models over the years without difficulty. I can't...

    Re: How do I edit ID tags?

    Have you looked at the rip log generated? That will tell you why it is inaccurate Also if you rip it more than once is the CRC after ripping red or green. If red, then it didn't get the same...

    Re: How do I edit ID tags?

    If your player uses tags, not file and directory names (like most) to select the tracks to play, you don't have to bother to change the file or directory names. It makes no difference what they are,...
  8. Re: Questions About Adding and Removing ReplayGain from Song Files

    Yes basically. However if the replay gain settings are messed up, no reason to clear the tags, just run the replay gain DSP in batch converter (once you solve your access problem) again, it will...
  9. Re: Questions About Adding and Removing ReplayGain from Song Files

    Make sure you are opening the batch converter, not the music converter. There should be a list of all your mapped drives/directories by drive letter (and a few other locations.) Before each one...

    Re: Editing before ripping

    What revision of dBpa are you using? This feature and how it works with the date and genre were updated a revision or two ago. But I proceed as I described above all the time, with all the tags,...

    Re: Editing before ripping

    When you highlight a track (or a group of tracks) the fields at the top change the values of only the highlighted tracks, not all. Exceptions are album stuff like album artist or album title. But...

    Re: Rip & Write ReplayGain

    From previous posts answered by Spoon, I recall the replay gain apply DSP applies the replay gains already in the tags, not new ones. Therefore you'd run the convert twice, first to create the tags,...

    Re: Genre tagging support

    I've been ripping a lot of "popular" (as opposed to my usual Caribbean) music recently. I've noticed in some cases it appears that someone, probably someone from the record company, loads the...
  14. Re: Variations in mastering? CD ripping a flawed process?

    The issues would appear to be in the digital players. I've never experimented with recording the output when you push "play". If you don't want some form of clicks, the player would need to fade in...

    Re: Question

    Yes, you can copy metadata from one rip to another. Put enough basic metadata with the new recording so you can find the files afterwards. Then open two instances of Windows Explorer, one of the...

    Re: External Multi Ripper Ideas & Help

    For a few hundred CDs, no need for a Nimbie. I recently acquired what now appears to be about 2000 pop CDs (for free) from a radio station that was about to dump them. I've been spasmodically...

    Re: External Multi Ripper Ideas & Help

    Well, how large is your collection? That would probably influence your collection. If you only have a few hundred CDs, it will probably take you longer to get your Nimbie working than it will just...
  19. Re: Success! Finally ripped my whole CD collection! Here's my story (w/ stats). . .

    Wow, congratulations. First, you keep statistics better than I. I know how many folders there are, and how many files. Windows Explorer tells me that, but I have quite a few files that weren't...

    Re: Looking for the best cd-drive for my needs

    You don't really need an (expensive) enclosure. Just get a sata to USB adapter that comes with a power supply. The drive is already in its own box. Plug the cables in, you are good to go.

    I also continue to have the issue that the Discogs album art doesn't get copied to my dBpoweramp album data when I successfully use the manual metadata search feature.

    Also, a "feature request",...
  22. Re: Sometimes the CD turns out all accurate despite some spots/smudges

    Actually, what is far more likely if you are ripping is that you are getting accuraterip data for the wrong CD. This is particularly true for CDs with one or few tracks, as you may have already...

    Sticky: Re: CD Drive Accuracy 2019

    No, the built in internal laptop drives are, in most cases no better than the external ones. The good drives, in my experience, are the "internal" 5 1/4 full height desktop drives. Use them with a...
