I want my file extensions to be lower casebut Max insists on upper case. How can I change this behaviour?

Mine (Flac + MP3) are all lower case...?

And so are extensions for files generated by Max here, all lower case. For which file format does Max use upper case extensions?

mp3's.

My naming string looks like this:

{discArtist}/{discTitle}/{trackNumber}. {trackTitle}.{fileFormat}

Max 0.6.1


Btw, is it possible to use Gracenote/CDDB rather than FreeDB. I tried to change to cddb.cddb.com but it didn't work.

1. Remove ".{fileFormat]" from the string for lower case extensions.

2. No, you cannot use Gracenote with Max. Gracenote is not a free service.

Any special purpose with this order?

Can I make Max use track info acquired by iTunes? I know it is politically better to use FreeDB but sometimes Gracenote offers more/better and/or more correct data about a CD.

The proper file extension is automatically appended to the file - in lower case.
The file format tag is more useful for purposes like mine (and now that you mention it, it is upper case, unlike the default file extension):
{fileFormat}/{discArtist} - {discTitle} - {trackNumber} - {trackTitle}

I agree. I mostly do classical and Gracenote has a much larger database of such titles.
