    13.5 vs 17.7 - Metadata

    Gents, Ladies….

    a couple of years ago I bought the version 13.5 and digitised all my CDs.
    In the meantime I bought a couple of new CDs which I wanted to rip today. Starting dB Rip I realised that freedb is no longer available. Is there a way to get the metadata anyway? Is this possibel with 13.5 or do I have to upgrade to 17.7?

    Appreciate your help.

    In CD Ripper R13.5, what is selected in Menu > Active Providers?

    Yes. In the last years metadata providers have quitted their services or changed their protocols. The world keeps on turning...

    I'm on 17.7 and have no problems with the actual metadata providers.
