Using CD or DVD or Blu Ray rom as player to output on motherboard - Page 2

- Yes, you need to fix the tracks tags in order not to get the mess

 

- FLAC is a lossless format. From the quality point of view, it's a PCM equivalent, like the WAV.

I used Windows Media Player together with madFlac-1.10 to play the FLAC files.

 

WMP won't play FLAC as it's not supported by microsoft. I searched web and found this madFlac-1.10. After installing madFlac  I could use MWP to play FLAC and I don't know exactly how the two apps work together to play FLAC.

 

I probably will end up with two kinds files: lossless WAV ripped using Windows Media Player and FLAC. WAV for easy play on PC while I am sitting at home. And FLAC is for archive and maybe on portable device sometimes.

Yes, WMP is not popular in the audiophile community. 

 

More versatile MPs, such as Foobar or Media Monkey are quite more widespread.

foobar2000 works very well with the FLAC.  Thanks.

 

In windows explorer the tracks from all CDs are mixed together ans still looks messy. There is no way to manage those files. I will look more if I missed some setting in EAC ripping process. Luckily in foobar2000 all albums and sorted well.

Can you not rip different albums into different folders at ripping time?
