    Maintaining path

    I have used the last two versions, 14 and 15, and just upgraded to 16. I am using a new computer but added my original media drive to this one. The Drive is K: and I have a Music folder with sub-folders for AIFF, ALAC, FLAC, MP3, and WAVE. In the previous version I put K:\Music\AIFF in the path field when the rip to dropdown was set to AIFF, K:\Music\ALAC in path field when the rip to dropdown was set to Apple lossless, etc. I then added the 5 codecs to multi-encoder and when ripping a cd I would end up with all five types of files in the proper folders.

    I have installed the newest update of version 16, as of 09/29/2018, and after I have set the path for one codec when I change to another codec to set the path it changes the paths for all codecs to the newest path.

    Is there some other way I have to make the settings to get 5 different encodings in the folders I desire?

    Thanks,

    You have to use multi encoder and to specify the path for each encoder - just like in R14 and R15.

    Was K:\ a network drive? Did you mount that drive as K:\ on your new computer again?

    If K:\ is mounted, you can access K:\ (i.e. by Windows explorer) and have write access to K:\ (i.e. try to copy a file to "'K:\Music\ALAC"), then you could check the options of CD Ripper. Have a look at "Tag & Filenames" - "When ripping". Try to set it to the option "Rip direct to final filenemes".

    > open File '\Cher\Dancing

    You have no drive specified, try adding [origdrive]\ to the beginning of the naming string.
