This is a workflow issue. If I select "rip CDs" and point to a specific destination folder on hard drive, I see that the resulting MP3 files, for successive discs, have duplicate names as far as the first seven characters. E.g., after ripping the first two disks, the names of the first two mp3 files are" 01 - 01_Penguin . . . " and "01 - 01_It happened . . . " The whole names of the chapters are unique, but they cannot be sorted in correct order by any technique. They could be reordered manually, of course, but the workflow would be horrible.
It would be possible, very tediously, to rename all of the 157 tracks after they have been converted to MP3 on the hard drive, so that they would sort correctly, before burning to an optical disk or transferring to an ipod. This would require noting the origical chapter names of all 157 chapters, setting up a renaming scheme that would have to be performed manually.
Or so it seems to me. I may be overlooking some simple process for having the 157 chapters on 12 discs rip in a way that would correctly order them onto the hard drive.?
For a single music CD, the workflow would be manageable,but for 12 discs with 13 "cda" files each, it is too much for me.
Because many people might want to convert a multidisc audio book to a single disc MP3 CD, or an ipod, there may be a simple workflow process already available. But I do not know about it.
What solutions are there?
