Multi-CD sets only match CD1

Hello!

I am new to Max and so far it's worked great for my - I am ripping my entire collection which consists of several hundred CDs.

I ran into a snag though. When I try to RIP multi-CD sets it finds CD1 OK, but then it considers CD2 to be identical. For instance this set, Painting It Red by The Beautiful South

http://musicbrainz.org/release/300214c0 ... d91b04abe4

CD1 all fine, but when i put the second CD in, it thinks its the same. I also noted that this happened earlier with other CDs.

I hope there is a way as entering manually is a drag, If there was a way to manually tell Max which ID it should read from Music Brainz, that would work too - or perhaps I am just missing something obvious?

Thanks for help!

A few months back MusicBrainz changed the way they categorize multi-disc sets. Max hasn't been updated yet to deal with the database change.

I'm having the same problem. Could we get a deadline to an update for this? Or how about: how do we switch which database MAX uses to get track info to using something else besides musicbrainz?

Thanks,
Eric

You can use the "Get iTunes Metadata" script to use the database that iTunes uses (Gracenote).
The script is included with Max downloads, can also be found here: http://forums.sbooth.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1930

(For freeware like Max, only free databases can be used in the application itself. Gracenote is commercial.)

I'm working on an updated version of Max, although I'm hesitant to give myself a deadline!

First post. Appreciate the work. I am also re-ripping my entire collection using Max, and of course, I ran into the MusicBrainz Disc 2 problem as well. I had previously used iTunes, starting out ALAC, and then AIFF. I have found that Max makes better (read "truly bit perfect") rips, and it makes a difference. S, that was a old enough reason to donate.

I actually think MusicBrainz is a good effort, and ai don't mind supporting it. Obviously, it's only as good as the individual efforts of its contributors, and I have found some mistakes. But all in all, it's pretty good. Not as good as Gracenote, but....

I know it's been a while since this thread has been active, but has there been any progress on this?

There is also a related bug as it tries to read beyond the end of the CD trying to match the tracks from the next one.

Does the "unstable" version address these problems?
