a cdex question


John Heath
 

Occasionally when using Cdex the program can't find
information on the album being ripped. Instead of track name and artist no
artist is all it shows. Are there steps to stop this?


JM Casey
 

Hello.

I'm not quite sure what you mean by "stop this". if it can't identify
something, it still has to name the files somehow.
Cdex's default database, which I think used to be gracenote, has been dead
for a while, I thought. I know you can set it up to work with another,
potentially, and if you are actually getting some albums identified it
sounds like you have already done that? I know mine doesn't identify
anything, but I'm ok with that as I just enter in everything manually and
there are no errors, unlike databases, where there are often errors in track
names and misidentifications of albums.

I should have said would there be a way to get the information should cdex
not bring it in. I have manually done some albums but first I have to obtain
the right information then start typing. The latter is a real pain for me.
Thanks for responding.

Yeah, not sure. Maybe look at the the documentation in the section about
lookups. The ability to interface with other databases may be pretty
limited.

I personally would rather enter data manually so that I can be more sure
it's correct, but it's certainly an extra step that couldb e time-consuming
if you have a lot of CDs to rip.
