Max doesn't recognize Cd's and Tracks..i-Tunes does?

Post by mikegrenwick » Sat Nov 01, 2008 3:40 am

Hello, I have been ripping all my cd's with Max but quite a few are not recognized and doesn't show the album name or tracks but i-Tunes does.

Is there anything I can do about this?

I'm having the same problem - however in my case Max doesn't recognize any CD at all. I have tried it with a couple of CDs that I am sure of being in the database. I even changed the server to freedb.freedb.org, but with the same result: it doesn't work. Max does connect to both, freedb and to musicbrainz but it does not use the track and title information. Why is this and how can it be solved? I know there is the solution with the script, but I'd rather have a more elegant solution within Max...
any help appreciated, thanks!!

Is Max calculating the disc id correctly? The MusicBrainz disc id is the filename that Max uses for the .cdinfo file.

hi,
thanks for your reply. as far as i can see, the disc id is not calculated correctly... i've compared the filename before the ".cdinfo" extension with the disc id on musicbrainz.org - not identical. what can i do to fix this? it doesn' work with all 5 CDs that I have tried...

Are you using the latest unstable version of Max?
