  1. Re: CD-Ripper 16.6 Finds Metadata (Sometimes) and then (sometimes) discards it.

    The late response idea sounds like a possibility. I agree that it's difficult to see how the FLAC codec could be involved, especially since all of this happens before one clicks the "Rip" button. On...
  2. Re: CD-Ripper 16.6 Finds Metadata (Sometimes) and then (sometimes) discards it.

    It's definitely a problem that we have not encountered before. Not sure, though, where it started in the v. 16.x series of "upgrades."

    I wonder if it has anything to do with Illustrate's "beta"...
  3. CD-Ripper 16.6 Finds Metadata (Sometimes) and then (sometimes) discards it.

    We have 5 0r 6 HP enterprise-grade workstations running either Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit or Windows 7 Pro, 64-bit. All have at least 16GB of RAM. The machine I am using now is an HP xw8600 workstation...

  5. Re: CD Ripper reads and then removes CD-Text and CD-ISRC, leaving metadata fields bla

    dBpoweramp's CD-Ripper is notorious for its issues with column spacing and width settings. Many times, in order to see all of the results, you need to drag the columns you do see all the way to the...

    Re: Track Titles Disappearing in CD Ripper

    Yes, I understand what you are doing, but regardless of which organization created the 1.3.3. beta version of the encoder. it seems irresponsible not to insist that the "official" FLAC development...

    Re: Track Titles Disappearing in CD Ripper

    I reported this problem several months ago, and yet it unfortunately still exists. It's not just CD-Text that disappears. CD-ISRC also frequently appears and then disappears. In each case, when this...
  8. Re: CD Ripper reads and then removes CD-Text and CD-ISRC, leaving metadata fields bla

    Well,I'm willing to turn off CD-Text and see what happens when no other metadata is recovered and the results blank. It's just inconvenient when I have to go back in those cases and THEN explore...
  9. Re: CD Ripper reads and then removes CD-Text and CD-ISRC, leaving metadata fields bla

    Oh, I am in complete agreement with you about the possibility of finding 'garbage' data in the CD-Text fields. I had addressed that possibility in an early reply to this thread but somehow I lost it...
  10. Re: CD Ripper reads and then removes CD-Text and CD-ISRC, leaving metadata fields bla

    I never meant to suggest that testing was not done. That said, a bug exists, perhaps as a faulty algorithm.

    It makes no sense whatsoever to me that is is reasonable to deselect CD-Text and CD-ISRC...
  11. Re: CD Ripper reads and then removes CD-Text and CD-ISRC, leaving metadata fields bla

    I first reported this problem on August 30, 2018 and then again on December 4, 2018. Spoon replied on December 5 that they would test it prior to the next update.

  12. Re: CD Ripper reads and then removes CD-Text and CD-ISRC, leaving metadata fields bla

    That is exactly what happens! If it does happen to you, try selecting "Retrieve Metadata from..." which is the second item on the Menu. Then choose "CD-Text." If that brings back some of the...
  13. CD Ripper reads and then removes CD-Text and CD-ISRC, leaving metadata fields blank

    Version 16.6: CD Ripper apparently first reads CD-Text and CD-ISRC, then looks for metadata on the web. Not finding anything on the web, it removes the originally found metadata that was on the...
  14. Re: Just where does CD metadata come from...and how does PerfectMeta work???

    I normally use mp3tag to tag CDs after ripping securely with dBpoweramp. But one of the questions was (reworded for clarity): How does one use dBpoweramp to add tags other than what appears at the...
  15. Just where does CD metadata come from...and how does PerfectMeta work???

    How does dBpoweramp "decide" which metadata is best? I realize that there are simple ways to "vote" on the available metadata from on-line sources such as discogs,sonata, freedb and so on. But...

    Re: FLAC Files Missing tags/Metadata

    What version of the FLAC codec is installed and at what compression level? If it's set to level 5, try resetting it to level 3. I know this sounds crazy, but if this problem occurred recently, it...

    Re: PerfectMeta far from perfect, or so it seems

    This issue appears to be a continuation of a problem that I reported on this forum on 8-30-2018. Metadata sometimes appears temporarily and then disappears. This is not always the case, but it...

    PerfectMeta far from perfect, or so it seems

    I'm running dBpoweramp Reference v.16.5 on a 64-bit Windows 10 Pro workstation. Metadata is not retrieved consistently, especially seeming to ignore CD-Text, CD-ISRC and presumably CD-UPC.

    Lately...

    Re: No meta data after upgrade to CD Ripper 16.4

    One of what I consider to be a serious fault with the latest versions of dBpoweramp using FLAC 1.3.2 is incompatibility with 64-bit AMD Core 2 processors. NO tags are written if you leave the...
