    From local cddb to dbpa

    Hi,

    I ripped my 400+ cds years ago to mp3 and I stored all the tags in a local cddb database.

    I want now to rip them again to flac format, using the same cddb database. I found the way to configure dbpa to do so and for most of my cd's it's ok (I even succeded to convert the old ansi cddb to utf-8).

    What is bugging me, is that when the track name has a hyphen in it, dbpa interprets the part before the hyphen as being an artist name and the part after as being the track name.

    Example
    ======
    This is an extract of my cddb file :
    TTITLE10=Suite from Nas - Sarabande
    TTITLE11=Suite from Nas - Musette
    TTITLE12=Suite from Zoroastre - Ouverture
    TTITLE13=Suite from Zoroastre - Air Majestueux

    This is how dbpa interprets the cddb file :

    In the TTITLExx field, I can change the " - " into ", " and then I get the whole string as track title, but I would like to avoid this tedious task.

    To complete the post, this is how I have configured the naming field (just in case) :
    cddb02.PNG


    Question 1 : is it possible to disable the splitting of the track title ?

    Question 2 : is it possible to control the way dbpa interprets the content of a cddb file ? I have several naming conventions within the album name that I would like to use to fill some specific tags

    Thank you for your help,
    Alain

    It is not possible to control this, sorry.
