    Batch convert albums

    Hi

    I've batch converted all my FLAC lossless compressed files to totally uncompressed but the converted files are all individual tracks and not in albums as before. How can I convert so that the albums are maintained ?
    Thanks in advance

    In which software are you seeing the individual tracks?

    On my USB stick. I converted all the Flac Compressed files situated on my hard drive to Lossless on my USB stick.

    Most likely you did not set the dynamic naming string properly in the batch converter.

    How do I go about doing this correctly ?

    You would set naming to something like:

    [artist]\[album]\[title]

    [artist]\[album]\[track] - [title]

    even better. The above works for non-compilations and non multi disk. I&*8217;ll post something later for those.

    You can use a string like this to automatically deal with compilations and multidisk sets. This puts the compilation CDs in a top folder called compilations. And it creates subfolders (Disk 1, Disk 2, etc.) for multidisk. There are other options too. This is just an example (and the one I use).

    [MAXLENGTH]240,[IFCOMP]Compilations\[album] [IFMULTI] \Disc [disc][]\[track] - [title] - [artist][][IF!COMP][IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],[artist][]\[album][IFMULTI] \Disc [disc][]\[track] - [title][][]

    I tried the above setting and it still converts each track as individual tracks. The original tracks that I'm converting are in a folder with the Artist Name then in folders with Album Name and on clicking the album folder the individual tracks are shown. I want to keep the same when converting. What am I missing ?
