    Import txt-file or exce - How to copy and paste a complete list of titles of an album

    Hello,
    I often find albums without titles in database and I am willing to add it.
    To avoid errors (and stupid work) I want to copy and paste titles from i.e. amazon or original artist site:

    1. titlenumber 1
    2. song number two
    3. ...
    ...
    15. Last song

    How to import it in dBpoweramp CDRipper?

    Thank you
    Iven.

    You would have to copy and paste each line individually into CD Ripper, select a track and press F2 to edit the title.

    thank you Spoon, but that is exactly what I do NOT want to do!
    ;-)
    Because I have dozens of txt-files from my backed up CDROMs like the covereditor in burning-program.
    If this dbPA is a professional tool there should be Import possibilities too.

    I discussed the issue of using text files as a PerfectMeta import option back in 2010. The only option available then, was to import from the Win95/98/XP cdplayer.ini file and I suspect that does not work anymore in the latest CDRipper. For me, importing from another source, such as a text file, is a necessary option but I doubt we will ever see it implemented.

    The easiest solution is to use a tag editor. Mp3tag, for example, can import metadata via text files.

    How to import it in dBpoweramp CDRipper?
    CD Ripper wouldn't really be an applicable program here. Adding metadata to existing files is an editing task, and like everything else, using the right tool for the job will make it a lot easier. This one's best handled with a dedicated tag editor.

    But it is the option of importing data into CDRipper prior to ripping and not relying on the metadata sources that is being requested here as often the metadata provided sucks.

    Mville,
    I strongly second your feature request. As I rip my CD library, I'm coming across many CD's for which dbpa is not able to find metadata. I find it very tedious entering the metadata on the CD-ripper user interface. It would make things a lot easier if I was able to import metadata from an Excel file or a plain-text file. People have had mixed luck with importing metadata from cdplayer.ini.

    Spoon,
    Could we please make this a high priority feature request?

    Having ripped over a hundred CD's, I find dbpa to be an excellent ripping tool. It has been able to recover from errors on numerous CD's. The only painful part of using dbpa has been the lack of ability to import metadata from a file when it can't find the metadata online.

    As I sit here re-ripping several of Dave's Picks I whole-heartedly agree. Even something as simple as "paste all titles from clipboard", and if there aren't the right number of lines, then error.

    for example this in the clipboard:

    Ramble On Rose
    Big Boss Man
    Mexicali Blues
    Brown-Eyed Women
    Me and My Uncle
    Smokestack Lightning
    Deal
    Truckin'
    Not Fade Away
    Going Down the Road Feelin' Bad
    Not Fade Away
    One More Saturday Night

    and hit a keystroke (say &*8984; + &*8679; + V or the windows equivalent).

    R16 does have this ability, right click on a track in CD Ripper >> Copy Track Names to Clipboard

    then look at the format, and you can paste back.
