    Multi Disc Sets

    Hi,

    I'm trying to organise my multi disc sets/box sets using Asset. I have all my files tagged using the 'Disc Number' tags. If I select 'Leave Album Tag Untouched' in the options, however, it groups all the files in one album listing. I like to be able to view each disc separately so this is no good for me. Selecting 'Show as Album, Disc X' does achieve this but it's brought up a couple of anomalies. Firstly, a small number of discs show up as 'Disc 01, Disc 02, Disc 03' instead of 'Disc 1, Disc 2, Disc 3'. I also have a few single discs that now have 'Disc 0' added at the end. I've checked the tags on these discs and I can't figure out what's happened as the tags appear correct. In the case of the former, I've input '1', '2', '3' in the Disc tag. In the latter, I've left the Disc tag empty as the discs are not part of multi disc sets.

    Ideally, I'd like an option where the box set appears as one album/listing. This would show the box set artwork. You would click on this and it would open up the separate discs with their own artwork. I don't think this can be done on Asset unless I'm mistaken. To give you an example, 'Neil Young Archives Vol. II (1972 - 1976)' would appear as one album with its artwork. You'd click on this and you'd then have separate discs, i.e. 'Disc 1 - Everybody's Alone (1972-1973)', 'Disc 2 Tuscaloosa (1973)', etc, with their own artwork.

    Try with dBpoweramp please. Or PerfectTUNES.

    I don't have any of these programmes. It should work fine with Metadatics as I've not had problems with it on other UPNP software. I would have thought using the Disc Number tag on Metadatics would work fine.

    Often files can contain more than one tag type, using dbpoweramp or perfecttunes in their trial mode would show what tags asset is reading. We have to rule this out.

    What audio file format is your library?

    In Metadatics, double-check that the Disc Number tag is consistent for all audio files?

    ... and as Spoon suggests, Asset may use a different disc no. tag than that used in Metadatics.
