    Re: Verifying existing rips

    Here is the letter A from my Rock Collection I am assuming that this is a representative sample of my entire Rock Collection with 74 CDís. Some discs had multiple print outs with listing 2 different songs. The key question is what to do with the info and how do I address the ones that could not be verified?

    Re: Verifying existing rips

    FWIW, I just CueTool'd 10 rips I have that are listed under your "AccurateRip: disk not present in database, will not submit" header, and all 10 verified with AccurateRip with confidence ranging from the teens to several hundreds, despite the absence of any .cue files for these albums. I'm talking Aerosmith, AC/DC, and Asia. I guess it's possible that you have some weird, uncommon pressings for these albums, but even obscure classical recordings I bought in the early to mid 80s almost all show up in AccurateRip, so I don't consider that very likely at all.

    There's an icon (something with a clock) you should untick this one (it's the third icon on the right)

    synchronization was lost.:
    these directories contain corrupt files.

    rips are accurate but only have a confidence of 2 or smaller. These are not added to the cuetools DB

    Re: Verifying existing rips

    I initially thought this program screwed up some my tracks cover art. I've discovered it has deleted my tags. Not on all my files but mostly 1-3 tracks on an album and up to 10 on a given album. Out of 29,000 plus tracks I have to repopulate over 3,500 tracks. Thankfully, I use JRiver Media Center and all the info is stored in an independent database. Because of the cover art problem I have to do it album by album. This is not good.

    USE THIS SOFTWARE WITH GREAT CAUTION!!!!

    I would like to help with this software but I need to be sure that it isn't going to damage my tags or files before I run it again. It would also be nice if there was a report or log generated after a run with everything organized by Category (see previous post) and artist. At that point I can at least update my database files to indicate all those that are accurate. This program has tremendous potential. It might be nice if the tags themselves could be updated to indicate that they have been verified by creating a field within the tags.

    I am almost certain that all the AC/DC, Aerosmith, Asia were verified in accurate rip. I added most of these after accurate rip was available. Since I have been using accurate rip I rarely come across a CD that isn't present in the database. While I have found that about 10% of all new CD's I buy are less than satisfactory and I return them because of the errors. Generally if a CD has less than 40 C1 errors per sector it is correctable less than half of that for C2 errors and CU errors (uncorrectable gets an immediate return). I have some other software that will look at the disk and determine it's quality as well. My objective is to try to get as close to the master tapes that the CD media will allow.

    Tigerman:

    Thanks for the info. I will check each of the tracks where it claims sync was lost.

    Love your tag line...It is so true.

    Not according to your earlier post. As for your new claim about CueTools (I guess? You didn't specify the program you were talking about.) messing up your metadata, my money is on you being mistaken.

    Re: Verifying existing rips

    I will test it again. I have used foobar to find lyrics but that was after I ran cuetools. It was foobar that showed me that my metadata was missing. The only other program I used on my files is JRiver Media Center and I know that hasn't caused the problem.

    As for AC/DC Asia etc. most of these were relatively recent additions to my collection so I am assuming that when they were ripped the were checked against accurate rip since I have been using it since it became available with EAC. I will look at file creation dates but I don't think that will be accurate if I have updated tags since the file was created. I think I have solved the date issue as the folder art hasn't changed and that was dated 3/25/09 for Asia/Asia. With AC/DC they are either 2006 or 2011.

    From what I can see, it appears that the problem lies with cuetools. I am more interested in tracking it down and helping build the database as we all can benefit from cuetools verification and repair capabilities. I would take this directly to the developer if he had a forum on his website. I've tried hydrogen audio as well but I haven't had any response to my posts.

    Have you run cuetools against your entire collection or just a few at a time?
