cd ripping

Question

When I rip CDs using say windows media player I get my ripped tracks directly in the folder I've ripped to. However if I use EMC10 there are multiple repeated layers till I get to the ripped tracks. As a consequence of this a complilation CD, which may have more than 1 artist, gets split into the component artists, which go into different folders.

 

Is there any way of ripping CDs in EMC10 where the tracks appear simply in the destination file?

I don't have a compilation cd to test what you're doing exactly but I tried ripping 2 ways. First, I used Music Disc Creator which ripped the tracks to a main folder of the bands name and a sub folder of the album name. It ripped all the tracks of the cd to that folder.

I then fired up the EMC10 Home menu and chose, 'Rip CD's' and selected the same directory to copy to (same cd as well) but this time, it simply copied all the songs to the main directory I browsed to and did not create a folder or sub folder. There are other ways as well such as using Sound Editor but it's not very friendly for ripping multi cd's but great for exporting audio to other formats.

 

Exactly how are you ripping? To answer your question, I'm not sure if what you want can be done or not but hopefully doing what I described above will work good enough for you.

Thanks. I will try what you suggest but I was trying the ripping of multiple cds using the fact that I have 2 DVD drives. This facility is one of the advertised features of emc10 where ripping in drive B starts as soon as drive A has completed. Interesting to hear what you find if you are able to use this.

Never tried multiple rips before. I'll have to give that a try.

Thanks. After further attempts this would appear only to be a problem with compilation albums where there are multiple artists on the same CD.

Sorry, I forgot to post my results back. Since I didn't have any compilation cd's, I couldn't do exactly what you did but all my trials came out just fine. At least you have an answer.

By the way, read this article and see what battle we have against us as to copying our legally purchased cd's.
