I'd like to get back FreeDb or use iTunes lookups

Musicbrainz doesn't seem to have about 50% of the CD that I'm converting and gives me *a lot* of weird german House music and random UTF8 looking stuff.

Thanks in advance.

Update

I have ripped about 100 CDs without error to MP3 format. So maybe it's some sort of error with FLAC encoding??

I've looked at the source code and nothing jumped out at me as being incorrect. Does the problem only occur on discs that have album art? I'm not sure, I didn't even want it to add art when I ripped. I don't have the "Save album art with output files" checked. http://www.flickr.com/photos/79495787@...

I think it has to do with CD ripping

I just converted about 1400 FLACS i have ripped previously using MAX to convert them to MP3s and it worked without a hitch.

So it's probably the CD ripper that's crashing.

Can anyone offer help?

Max is crashing a lot for me

I recently lost all my MP3 files so it's time for me to rip my 1400 CD collection again. I decided to encode them as both MP3 and FLAC files , but Max has been crashing a lot on me. My workflow is: Start Max 1:Insert CD 2:Max grabs the disc information from the internet. 3:I manually make any change...

Re: What is a "comparison ripper"?

The new version of Max now also has a comparison ripper. Could someone explain what it is and why or when I should use it instead of paranoia that I have used so far? The ReadMe states: "For damaged discs, Max can either use its built-in comparison ripper (for drives that cache audio) or the error-...

MAX 0.6 ripper details?

I launched 0.5.6 and was notified of the new version.

Are they any pointers for the new ripper settings?

Thanks for the development,
Tom
