    How do I manually add tracks?

    I'm trying to rip what I imagine is a very popular album (for classical at least): Glen Gould's 1955 Goldberg Variations. Problem is when I load the CD the ripper thinks its a comedy album with one track. In reality there are 32 tracks! So I realize I need to add tracks and metadata manually. I can modify the one existing track, but how do I add the 31 additional tracks? Thanks in advance

    If you navigate to the CD in File Explorer (windows) or Finder (macOS), how many .cda files are showing?

    The only thing I see on the CD is "1 Audio Track" of kind "AIFF-C", no .cda files.

    Could it be the issue is that this is a Sony "SBM" (Super Bit Mapping) recording?

    Is the disc a CD-DA or CD-ROM?

    Its a Sony "SBM" (Super Bit Mapping) recording, "mastered using 20-bit technology for 'high definition sound'. But it does say CD-DA on the disc itself, it just seems they somehow are able to record 20 rather than 16 bits.

    AIFF-C is a compressed AIFF file.

    CD Ripper expects redbook audio CDs (CD-DA). It looks like this disc is not an audio CD, rather a data CD with 1 file on it, the AIFF-C file.

    No, SBM is marketing nonsense. If the disc is a CD-DA, CD Ripper will read it and display all the tracks.

    What album title, label, year, catalog no. is on the disc?

    Title: JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH GOLDBERG VARIATIONS, BWV 988 Aria & Variations 1-30 Aria Reprise
    Label: CBS RECORDS MASTERWORKS
    Year: 1982 CBS Inc.
    Catalog: MK 37779 (DIDC 050035)

    I've looked at multiple other CD's from different labels (which were all successfully ripped); they all show up as AIFF-C files on my MacBook.

    If you load the CD into a normal CD Player does it recognise it as having 32 tracks?

    Must be a Mac thing.

    discogs and musicbrainz has some 1982 releases as having 1 track, 51:18 long, 32 sub-track indexes:
    Bach - Glenn Gould The Goldberg Variations

    CD Ripper does not support sub-track index ripping.
