Hi Stephen.

Some cd's have what is called CD Text encoded, this means that whenever you 
play the cd in a compatible cd player or computer, the track name and 
associated information is displayed on the screen.

All the best, Ibrahim.

I've never understood why CDs don't carry their own data. In fact I am
certain that some do because our car CD player can display track names and
as far as I am aware it is not internet enabled.

If the data is there how can it be accessed.

Clive,

I'd stick with express rip. Once you've ripped the album, you could then use
mp3tag to tag songs. MP3Tag doesn't do any ripping, but is solely for use as
a tagger, and has a choice of 6 databases. From memory, the dbpoweramp
ripper just rips, and doesn't access any databases.
Having said all that, I tend to use windows media player. If tags are
eccentric or non existent, I then retag using mp3tag.

Best regards,

David.

Hi all,

I'm thinking of changing over from Express Rip to DBPowerAmp as my preferred
CD Ripping program. Please can anyone tell me:

1. How accessible is it?
2. How easy is it to customize the filenames of ripped tracks? I'd want ot
store my album tracks in a path my music/genre/artist/album, and with a file
format "01 - track name.mp3". Is this easily achievable?
3. How easy is it to edit the tags as you go, for example, if the search for
track info has brought back a mis-spelled name, or the album title isn't
quite right?
4. Which online databases does it use to get its information, and how easy
is it to select your preferred database?

For information, the reason I want to leave Express Rip behind is that it
uses only two databases, and you can select which one you want the programme
to try first, but recently, the search on MusicBrainz (ordinarily the best
of the two) brings back no information, giving albums with artist name,
genre, title and year blank and tracks showing as "Track 1, track 2, track
3". A programme that can use only one database isn't good enough, given the
number of times searches can tell you that a Z Z Topp album is Heinrich von
Schtinkhorn conducting the Krappenheim symphony orchestra in concerto  #125
for Kazoo and orchestra, or whatever.

Thanks,
Clive
