I'm using abcde to rip cds onto my hard drive. I use mp3 format. The problem I'm having is that I can't get the tracks to have the proper name. The all come out as trackXX.mp3 (where XX = the track number). I'd prefer it to be name-of-track.mp3.
I've tried modding abcde.conf and several command line parameters to achieve this but I can't get it to work.
Hummm hard to say... my abcde gets the cddb data from the net and my MP3's are all named properly
what command line do you use for abcde?
abcde -a cddb, encode, tag
I have since noticed that the tag and cddb operations seem to work. If I import 'track09.mp3' into xmms it appears with the correct song name. I'd really like the file on the disk to have the same name as the song.
abcde -w "bla bla bla" -o mp3
Tried your suggetion. It read all 21 tracks and created one mp3 with the artists name. It deleted all the wav files.
Is there another suggestion for a cd ripper??
I just did it again today and it worked fine for 2 cds
do you have any abcde.conf or .abcde files anywhere?
check /etc/abcde.conf to see if any options might be changed in there
Thanks dadexter. My abcde.conf was set up wrong. Made some adjustments and it works great.
