"frustrated by the way the Ripper deals with various artists compilations - gets the song names but just labels the artist as 'various' which is annoying" In some ways this is a good thing, as compilation albums often have lots and lots of artists' names and when you go to your AK Artists screen there are a ton to scroll through. I actually label all artists on compilation discs Various Artists and that way if I go to Various Artists under Artists there the albums all are. On my 240SS if I go to an artist's name from a compilation disc, it often just shows the song or songs of that artist, not the complete album. so an artist with a single song gets you a single song you can play. . If you organize as I showed in my previous post, by folders, you can also use Folders instead of Artist or Album or Genre to navigate, though with the 240 series you have to navigate either the Internal or Card folders, as they are not compiled into one big database. A minor issue with the UI.
