Thread: Rip using windows command line

  1. #1

    Rip using windows command line

    I have a Sony VGP-XL1B that I want to use to autorip my CD collection. I have written a program with the help of MTX, that will load and unload each CD programmatically. I want to programatically perform a rip between each automated CD change.
    I have this working with Expressrip but it is a very limited ripper in terms of quality.
    I purchased both DBPoweramp and batch ripper.
    Is there a command line interface for DBPoweramp?
    How do I kick off a rip when a new CD is mounted in the changer without having a human click a button in the GUI?

    thanks!
    Lt

    You could use Batch Ripper with the 'Media Changers' driver installed, Batch Ripper will rip and unload CDs automatically.

    Spoon's answer is the better answer, but you could also create a script/program with AutoIT to click the Rip button at the right time.

    Lt: You've got PM regarding some XL1B specifics.

    Hi Spoon, that is what I am trying to do.

    I installed media changer drivers from dbpoweramp site, but I cannot get batch ripper to automatically mount, rip, unmount , mount next, etc. the CDs in the changer.

    Am I not understanding how batch ripper works/ how to use it?

    thanks,
    Ken

    You have configured the drive as a media changer in batch ripper configuration?

    Try the test load and unload.

    Yes, I believe it is configured. Here are screen shots:

    I: is the drive letter for the XLIB cd

    Perhaps I just can't figure out how to use batchripper.
    I loaded the XLIB with about 80 CDs.
    I open batchripper.
    I: is checked in the batchripper.Then I click RIP, it queries for the metadata fine, then rips whatever CD is mounted in the changer's CD drive. But after the first rip completed, batchripper just repeatedly creates a "same cd" error forever...

    thanks,
    Ken

    In batch ripper configuration, try a test load and unload (where you configure the drive), does it unload?

    FIXED! Works _perfectly_now.

    It was USER ERROR! (That's me)

    I did not select the "MediaChanger" in the drive configuration drop down. I had it set as manual load.

    Thanks for your patience and help Spoon!



    Thanks
