Heheh! I stumbled across this program when I needed to tag DSFs. This still can't tag DFF files which will have to converted to DSFs.

One catch, AnakChan: the metadata works between Mac machines but not Windows machines. I can read the metadata on my Mac mini when I do the tagging on the iMac and vice Versa. But as soon as it goes to a Windows machines, the metadata appear as Klingon. ;p

Delete entire music files? Nope.... OMG. its gonna take some time to do that.. maybe better i do a factory reset and copy again. 

I think is worth to try the reset first to see if this fixes the problem.  Let us know how it goes.

I'm using MacBook Pro and what is the best CD ripper to rip CDs?  I was using Max but now it doesn't provide album art and I need to look for new ripper, any recommendation?

 

cheers

BTW, I was going to suggest that if you do decide to do the factory reset, put on that DFF album first before the others just to see if it's ok on its own. If it's ok then there maybe a bigger issue at play. If it's not ok, then at least you've identified the offending DFF album.

 

Thats what i am thinking too. I just tried to delete just the DSD folder and only copy 1 DFF but still giving the same error.

I use XLD but same problem of no auto artwork. But you can attach just before you start burning. I usually fix my tagging that way too for CDs.

I use XLD too but its just now working with .wav files. no artist name, no artwork, nothing even though i set everything before i encoded it. but it works well for all .m4a files.

Thanks.  Let me try it out.

I noticed AK240 handles tags differently than the older AK models.. I did my tags nicely for AK100MK2 but in AK240 it's messy and all over the place =.=

Very likely because they are based on different platforms.

That's not completely correct. XLD has some sort of automatic artwork loading - when go to preferences and then click on CDDB you can use FreeDB for artwork.(You have to register at FreeDB to be able to use it - afaik)  You can also use Amazon web services if you have access.

When ripping CDs XLD finds about 7 out of 10 covers - of course depending on the music style. For Cuban or Colombian Salsa for example FreeDB rarely ever finds a cover, for mainstream I guess the ration is over 80%. Can't say anything about classical though as I don't listen to it a lot

 

BTW - there is a quite useful and short "setup guide" on the net -  I hope the link works

 

docs.linn.co.uk/wiki/images/0/08/XLD_setup.pdf

 

On the NAIM Forum someone recommended using  BLISS

 

http://www.blisshq.com/

 

for coverart retrieval. I haven't tried it yet, but will do so.
