Artwork with troubles!

Post by fuerst2626 » Wed Nov 09, 2011 9:46 am

Hello,
Iam using MAX 0.9.1 over 2 years without any Trouble.
NOW the Artwork doesn't work successful.
I don't change anything in the preference!
When I copy my CDs, amazon.com can't find a cover, I put in a Jpeg to the Cover window then
copy the Cd and Artwork fails (there are no cover-pictures at the datafiles)
I use AIFF Files with 16bit (C-Audio)

At first I try another Version of MAC. -> Deinstall everything before! -> nothing changes
Second I try unstable Version of MAC -> Deinstall everything before! -> nothing changes
Try to downgrade Itunes to 9.2.1 -> Deinstall everything before! -> nothing changes

So whats going wrong?
Why are the copied Files faulty?
Why Amazon.com cannot show a cover jpeg?

My System 10.6.2
Itunes 10.5

I my case MAX is a really good small application and runs very smooth, want to use it again and again.

I test a lot, also with other Audio tools.
Avery Software has the same Problem.
Change the MAC to an Macbook - also the same!
Change to an other MAC 10.6.8 - also the same

Yes similar problems here, except dragging artwork and dropping in the Album Art window seems to be working for me, I can no longer obtain the artwork by any other method though.

Agreed. I suspect Amazon changed something here.

Hey,
found the problem in my case! :!:
Artwork fetching over Amazon isn't working! But in my case the files don't have the fetched/dragged Artcover in the datareview!
I check everything but can't find the problem.
An old G5 mac 10.5.8 with old itunes (9.2.1 i think) MAX runs smooth without any problem!
CD ripping runs perfect (only Amazon Cover-art isn't running).
But when I install itunes 10.5 and reboot - the art-cover metadata is missing in the ripped files.
downgrade to itunes 9.2.1 but no changes ;-(
So for all others: Itunes 10 ....xx don't know which version exactly crashed or changed some System-data (C-Audio???????????),
you cannot downgrade Itunes (it takes no effect).
I my case I will run Snow Leopard with latest iTunes (support for Iphone etc.) to play and sync my music, but to ripp/copy CDs I will use VMware Fusion (installed an old System Version)
Hope to get a new MAX version to fix that Problem. :wink:
Other Software (Rip, XLD, etc.) have the same Problem with the Itunes Version! :?

I've been ripping CD's with Max for the past year without any issues, but I just upgraded to the latest version of iTunes and now Max will not capture the album art. Since I've had no past problems I have to assume that it is a compatibility problem between Max and the latest version of iTunes. I really don't want to go to the trouble of ripping the CD's without being able to include the album art. I've found no acceptable alternative to Max for ripping Apple lossless files, so I hope someone finds a way to fix it soon.

Has anyone found the solution to the art work download issue? I upgraded to Snowleopard a while ago and did not have any issues with album art download until just recently (Nov). Currently I am on OSX 10.6.8. Appreciate any insights on how to fix this or what album art alternatives I could use so that every track has the art when viewed via PlugPlayer and similar apps. Thanks.
