Ok, Well shout out to admin n stuff! Nice to see a GOOD audio forum for a change!
Well i use allot of Hip Hop Mixtapes and stuff like that which the EAC database barley ever picks up! I mean im luck if it find 1 out of 15 mixtapes!
But nearly every mixtape i load up in itunes has all the Cd info!
Now i love the EAC encoder and dont want to use itunes to do that! But i cant be doing the whole manual typing in thing thats crazy! most mixtapes have like 50 tracks [i got like 30 with 100 or more tracks on them].
Now i know itunes uses gracenote as its main database which is huge!
Please help how do i use the data i get from itunes and then convert with EAC?
I tried looking for public acses to gracenote but thats no option!

Cheers all [if u reply crying.gif ]

I don't think that it is possible for EAC to use the Gracenote database. It uses the freecddb one because is open and public.

If it's not by means of hacking EAC, I don't think it is possible at all.

As okinawa_joe has said Gracenote is not 'free' as such, and so apps that use it have to pay for the privelege. This means you then have to pay for (in one way or another) the apps that use it. Hence, Freedb is used by most free apps.

What you could do is this:
(1) Use EAC to rip your music to lossy or lossless files that are untagged and un-named.
(2) Use a tagger like Mp3tag that can look at more than just Freedb to retrieve tagging info. See this Mp3tag thread for this functionality: http://www.anytag.de/forums/index.php?showtopic=1794
(3) Hopefully get the info you want (as you can use Discogs you should be in luck - they have a very good hip hop database), then tag your files.
(4) Then convert the tags to filenames.

Now I know it's not as useful as doing it in one go like iTunes will do, but it's not as bad as typing it in by hand. Although, you'll be doing a service to all those other peeps that have these mixtapes but find no info in Freedb.

You can use Player to get info from Gracenote, then export the info to cdplayer.ini. Then you can import that info from cdplayer.ini to EAC.

Then again, I pressume that you should just use iTunes, instead of going thru all these complications.

iTunes is not regarded as good as EAC when it comes to quality, but it is much better than others (like Easy CD-DA Extractor IMO). It offers Gracenote CDDB like you need, has secure ripping options, etc... you can even configure it to LAME things for you.

Regards,

I definitely agree on the supermodel thingie ... I might disagree on iTunes' capabilities, but that is of minor interest when supermodels are around, I guess ... laugh.gif
