    Re: Album Artist / Artist..?

    Hi daleyb, I've been gone awhile....good to be back and see you're still around. :) ALBUM ARTIST is a very important tag because most players use it for organization and navigation of your music...

    Re: Meta Tags problem

    Oh, I believe it. I've been using a variety of Sonos devices for many years, and the only one that I ever tried and returned was the PlayBar (which happens to be their most expensive player). I'm...

    Re: Converting DVD 5.1 Surround to FLAC?

    I agree. I have quite a few concert DVDs & Blu-rays, and because they often have bonus content not available on their corresponding CD releases, I've tried various approaches to extracting that...

    Re: Meta Tags problem

    Hi MES2. As you're working through your issues here, I think it's worth stepping back and clarifying a couple basic concepts/points:

    Re: Newbie help

    There are many free conversion utilities available. Obviously, they don't offer the same feature set as dBp, but if you have one simple task, any utility that covers that task should be effective....

  7. Re: Very odd AAC (M4a) behaviour using Denon Heos

    +1 Never a good idea. mp3 is the most widely-supported format out there, so it's hard to imagine you'll ever run into a playback device that can't play it. The Heos players are no exception. I...

    Re: Mp4

    It's worth pointing out, zee, that if you're starting with lossy files (mp3s, as implied by your thread title), it's unwise to perform any kind of audio conversion on them. Lossy to lossy, presuming...

    Re: Problems in ripping

    Your logic may seem valid, but it's actually flawed. Ripping with iTunes is not a definitive test of whether a CD is OK or not.


    I have two:
    (1) Since you are satisfied with iTunes' rip results...

    Re: Play from dBpoweramp

    dBpoweramp is a program primarily used for creating digital audio files from CDs. As you probably saw when you were setting up and ripping those CDs, it can create/convert audio files in a wide...

    Very kind words, Alastair, and as garym says, you're very welcome. I certainly hope there aren't people who feel ridiculed in this forum, but I do know exactly what you mean. I've participated in a...
  13. Re: Loss of option in "naming field" to select "Save in Dynamic Artist Folder"

    Hi Alastair....no worries on the language thing. Your English is obviously excellent and you made yourself clear enough. :)

    Read through garym's suggestions about dynamic naming. But note...
  14. Re: Loss of option in "naming field" to select "Save in Dynamic Artist Folder"

    I suspect your first question answers the second: If you are ripping to a different location, dBp doesn't know that you already ripped the CD. So of course there's no warning.

    As to the location...
  15. Re: Trouble with m4a files. Want to convert to mp3. Unable to add codec.

    I realize you resolved the issue you started with, but just a quick comment: It's never a good idea to convert from one lossy codec to another. Unless you absolutely can't use the files as...

    Re: R15.3 Installer won't start for a re-install

    All of that looks related to Windows internal telemetry....perhaps there was an improper shutdown while it was "phoning home" or trying to collect data or something. Hard to know. Also not sure how...

    Did you do a clean Windows 7 install? If so, maybe it's a little "too" clean, i.e., you may still have some updates and key components to install. Run Windows Update 2-3 times (with restarts) to...

    Re: Rip CD burned with itunes music

    Bottom line: It's not an audio CD.

    When you burn a CD in Windows Media Player (and many other programs), you have the option to burn it as an "Audio CD" or as a "Data CD." Audio CDs are the kind...
