When I rip collections using batch ripper, there are normally multiple discs that are not recognised by the metadata search providers.


Disc 001: Take That
Disc 002: Unknown Artist
Disc 003: Spice Girls
Disc 196: Napalm Death
Disc 197: Unknown Artist
Disc 198: Agoraphobic Nosebleed
Disc 199: Unknown Artist
Disc 200: Dillinger Escape Plan

Disc 002 writes its tracks down as Track 1.flac, Track 2.flac etc but these get overwritten by Discs 197 and 199 so that I end up losing tracks.

I've had a good search of these forums and seen the recommendations for using
  • Date and time
  • cddb_id
  • discunique

but the problem comes when I'm post batch and I need to work out which failed discs correspond to which physical cd case in a pile of 200 (or more) so I can manually punch in the track names or at least mark up the tracks with the correct artist and album names so that other tools can find the meta correctly.

I'm hoping there's some way to get ideally
  • [batch_id][changer_id][changer_slot]
  • [batch_id][disc_id]

or something like that to make it easier?

Any and all help appreciated
