Thread: I am a moron.

    I am a moron.

    Can someone please explain in simple, single syllable words why when I rip a cd to my portable harddrive in Wave, I loose the artist and album info?
    Thanks

    because the program you are using to play the wave file does not support the ID Tags we write to wave?

    Yes. Why not use a lossless format that has standard tagging. FLAC is my recommendation.

    If I use Wave to rip the cd, I can play the music but the artist and album are unknown. If I use Apple Lossless the Artist and album are known but the music wont play.
    FLAC wont play on my player.

    Maybe I should mention that I am trying to use the hard drive on the Sync system in my truck.

    t is possible that the sync system does not support any id tags for any lossless format, only filenames.
