    CD ripper very slow to find data

    I hadn't used CD ripper in about 2 weeks and I used it today in my laptop and my desktop. In both cases, it is extremely slow to find metadata. It can take as much as 5 minutes or more to find anything but track numbers and durations, which it finds very quickly. My network speed is over 100 Mbps and the desktop is Ethernet connected. If I try to manually enter the data, after several keystrokes, what I have typed disappears and starting to type again has no better result. I turned off my anti-virus, but that didn't help. What should I check? What should I do?

    15.2.0.3 I'm sure there's a newer version by now. What is the current number? How do I update?

    I have been seeing this too. I am running dbpoweramp reference release 14.4 on Win 10 latest update.

    It generally takes 3-5 minutes to receive the metadata. I'm using the default metadata sources. I'm not using a connection through proxy server.

    Is it waiting to check one of the metadata sources and that's causing the problem?

    The sources on my version is: AllMediaGuide,freedb, GD3, musicbrainz,tracktype.

    (Like, if I disable one of the sources, will that solve the problem?)

    Other than that, dbpoweramp works beautifully, and this issue only arose about 3 weeks ago. As it happens, I had to reinstall Windows 10. After I did that and did the latest update, the problem continued.

    All Media Guide was recently discontinued. Uncheck it from the metadata list.

    Info from this thread: AMG Metadata discontinued

    Wow, that solved the problem immediately!

    It retrieves the data in a split second now. Thanks!

    Thanks, this solved my problem with very slow metadata retrieval, too. Glad it was such an easy fix.
