    Batch Ripper No Album Art

    My Batch Ripper was working great but for some reason it has stopped loading the album art. The metadisc search is completed and the cd tracks identified but no art work..?????
    If I load the same disc into the standard db single disc ripper the album art loads OK, to say I am confused by this is an under statement.
    Any help on this would be most appriated..

    With Batch Ripper you have 400 free lookups to AMG, after which you have to buy lookups at the commercial rate.

    Thanks Spoon
    I must say that I am not happy with this has I paid to register the software and to have use of AMG for 1 year. I did not see any thing in your advertising stating on 400 cd lookups. I have checked again and it clearly states a 1 year contract and no limitations.
    Who do I need to speak to to reinstate my contract that I paid for??

    You are using the wrong program, you should use CD Ripper, not batch ripper (which is a commercial ripping program).

    I am sorry but your advertising do not state this is comercial use only but also for individuals with a large cd collection. You sell it on the point of ripping hundreds of cd's fast with one year AMG subscription.
    As I stated before I must have my membership renewed, and I will except another 400 cd's. If this cannot be done I will want a full refund.
    I feel very strongly on this matter, you have mis sold a product and I will be persuing this further if Illustrate do not rectify.

    from the front/main page, right under where you point out its promoted for people with large CD collections.

    Batch Ripper™ appeals to commercial ripping houses, radio stations or even individuals with a large number of CDs to Rip:

    * Auto & manual loading (open design, most robots supported),
    * From one to many drives support,
    * Process overview of each drive and ripping status,
    * Highest quality metadata providers: AMG & GD3,
    * Lowest commercial per-CD metadata rates,
    * Extensive customizable meta-data rule sets,
    *

    Over 120 discs per hour through-put, per machine (6x drives)

    Quite agree that it states cheapest per cd, but it sells lincence for a full 365 days................ there is no mention of a limit of 400cd's...........................
    This is gross mis advertising>>>>>>>>>>

    Understand their rules having read the product help files, this is only available after you have purchased
    As it states when you purchase, all programs (including Batch Ripper) have fully functioning trials.

    Batch Ripper is a free add-on, so anything in the dBpoweramp configuration relates to dBpoweramp, not any free add-ons.

    You have the 365, you can use it with reference. Not batch ripper.

    Re: Batch Ripper No Album Art

    Just starte testing dbpoweramp. Looks good! I will use the batch converter to convert 25.000 tracks from iTunes to FLAC. So I understand I will have album art functionality for 400 albums and then pay. How much will I approximately pay per album?

    Can I test this before buying?

    and most importantly, I cannot figure out how this works, any reference for stupid me :smile2:

    Album art is only retrieved when Ripping CDs, not converting, sorry.

    Re: Batch Ripper No Album Art

    Hi, I too have come up against this issue.

    To be fair it is a little miss-leading as the info on the website says you get to use the batch ripper if you buy a licence for dbpoweramp. And the assumption is that batch ripper has the same capabilities as the CD ripper but can run multiple simultaneous rips.

    However I also understand that as a commercial product you can't give us something for free that required charges to AMG.

    There is a potential solution though for home users, if like me you just want to use multiple CDs in the same PC simultaneously. I have discovered you can run multiple instances of the CD ripper and set each one to use a different drive. Only downside is that you have to press 'rip' each time you insert a cd.

    Hope that helps?
