Hi,

I have just upgraded to dBpoweramp Music Converter R13.4 (Registered) and am using CD Ripper. It's a great product, but a few things have appeared, some of which appear to be bugs:

1) On upgrading I received a 30 day free trial of PerfectMeta™ (AMG, GD3 & MusicBrainz) Access. However this is only available on my admin account (which I normally only use for installations, etc.), not on my normal account. Is this intentional or a bug?

2) I have set up my own naming string "[IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],[IFCOMP]Compilations[][IF!COMP][artist][][]\[album]\[IFMULTI][disc]-[][track] [title][IFCOMP] ([artist])[]". On reading a new disc, if I check "Current CD Meta" as soon as the Meta Data has been read, the track number does not appear in the track name. If I cancel and check again, the tracker number is there.

3) I have tried using the [Encode Local] codec with the [Multi Encoder] codec for FLAC and m4a Nero (AAC) writing to a NetGear ReadyNAS Duo. I can successfully use the codecs individually (though see (6) below) with and without [Encode Local], but when I also use [Multi Encoder] I get the following errors:

Error ripping to [Encode Local], 'Track 1' to '\\Readynas-1\media\Music\Lossless\Jacqueline du Pré\Favourite Cello Concertos\3-01 Dvorák Cello Concerto in B minor, Op.104 - I. Allegro.IGNORE'

Error copying to '\\Readynas-1\media\Music\Lossless\Jacqueline du Pré\Favourite Cello Concertos\3-01 Dvorák Cello Concerto in B minor, Op.104 - I. Allegro.IGNORE' insufficient space? [clEncoder::EndConversion]

Error ripping to [Encode Local], 'Track 2' to '\\Readynas-1\media\Music\Lossless\Jacqueline du Pré\Favourite Cello Concertos\3-02 Dvorák Cello Concerto in B minor, Op.104 - II. Adagio ma non troppo.IGNORE'

Error copying to '\\Readynas-1\media\Music\Lossless\Jacqueline du Pré\Favourite Cello Concertos\3-02 Dvorák Cello Concerto in B minor, Op.104 - II. Adagio ma non troppo.IGNORE' insufficient space? [clEncoder::EndConversion]

The files get created in each codec's "Folder" directory (e.g. as "103281140-dblocalencode.flac") rather than in the sub-directories identified in "Naming" but don't get renamed. They are playable. It seems to make no difference whether I use a mapped drive or a shared drive.

4) I have tried using the [Multi Encoder] codec for FLAC and m4a Nero (AAC) without [Encode Local]. However all the files again appear in the encoders' "Folder" directories, without using "Naming" to create sub-directories, though "Naming" is used to create the file names.

5) In order to get round these inconveniences I convert to FLAC using CD Ripper and then use dBpoweramp Batch Converter to convert to .m4a. However, because I am storing the two formats in different locations, when I give Batch Converter a destination folder that doesn't yet exist based on the source directory structure it won't create the sub-directories so I have to create them all before I can carry out the convert. Could this be fixed?

6) I have a problem with the m4a Nero (AAC) codec. I was trying to convert a FLAC file using dBpoweramp Batch Converter but the conversion failed. The track title was "Jenkins - Scenes from Wales - II. Bara D&*blooper*373;r" and the target filename was "2-02 Jenkins - Scenes from Wales - II. Bara D&*blooper*373;r.m4a". I then tried again, direct to m4a, using CD Ripper with the same effect. I then changed the target filename, replacing the '&*blooper*373;' character with 'w'. Finally the conversion worked and I then used the mp3tag application to rename the file and correct the ID tag. The FLAC codec had no such problems.

7) Finally, refresh for Batch Converter doesn't appear to work for folders on a shared ReadyNAS Duo drive. In order to see a folder that has been created (by CD Ripper) since Batch Converter has been running, I have to restart Batch Converter.

Once again, this is a great product but would be even greater if these niggles could be resolved. Thanks.
