I'm using 2.2.2.78, and I just ripped three tracks on Windows Media Player, from three different CDs, but the Monkey won't rip them. No volume leveling, 192k, relatively short file path. I did notice all CDs have data, so maybe it is a version issue. I was under 2.3.1 was still in Beta. Has that cha...

Hadn't thought of that

Wow! Thanks for taking time time for that response.

I'll try the discs I had trouble with yesterday under cooler conditions.

And turning off the volume leveling is a good idea, too -
simple is sometimes more successful.

Thanks!

Last track not ripping

So, I'm working through a pile of mint condition CDs (direct from the plant) and three times now, three discs, the Monkey can't rip the last track on the disc. As I recall, the tracks run from the hub out, so the higher numbers are out at the least-stable part of the disc. I'm on a laptop, the the d...

In Auto Organize three digit track numbers become two digits

I rip quite a few audiobooks, and to keep playback in order, I usually just name the tracks numerically. Most audiobooks have over 100 tracks, so I start with 001, then use MP3Tag Studio to make the filename (or some part of it) the track number. I just tried a similar process with the Monkey, which...

Palm device sync?

I've recently added a Treo600 to my utility belt, replacing a Treo180. Now that I have mp3 capability on my phone (including rings), I find myself using [gasp!] Windows Media Player because it has the plugin to transfer files. Since the Palm won't show as a drive (as far as I know), I'm requesting P...

But what of file changes?

I think I'm on the same page here, similar situation. But more questions: How to manage songs ripped when the external HDD is not connected? When I make changes to the songs in the Virtual CD (on the local HDD), will those changes be synchronized to the files on the external HDD? When and how? Why n...

Player "Open File" Button looks like an "Ejec

Thoughts on the Player buttons: An 'Open File' button is nice, but should follow interface conventions and display a folder, maybe. As far as I have seen, a triangle pointing up with a line under it usually indicates eject. Makes sense to have an 'Eject CD' button in the player, but this one is an '...

I had the same issue on two succesive discs. Listened to them, and the tracks in question were skippy.
The read surfaces on both were, as we used to say, "Hazed." But selectively.

Now for disc three... we'll see...

Whoa- thanks! I guess I'm not used to the conventions yet. The CD Module is exactly what I was looking for! I do agree that popping the disc at the end of the rip would be nice, but otherwise, I'm getting more into the Monkey every day! And the MixMeister BPM app owked pretty well, but make sure to ...

Rip 'n Roll Wishlist Item

I've been using Windows Media Player 10 to rip, too, but the forced file structure (Artist\Album\Artist-Title) and album art files were bugging me. Here's the Wishlist item: I do like the ability to review and edit the MP3 tags before I start ripping, especially when I can change the genre, album ar...

Keeping your Music Findable - Tools

After years in radio and as a mobile dj, my method is first to listen to everything. Then organize by genre (fewer the better), then alphabetical by artist, compilations at the end of the stacks. My Genres: Spoken Word Jazz Country World Electronica EBits (Electronica Compilations) A-Library (everyt...
