I am trying to figure out how to properly use (to my taste) itunesencode when transcoding FLAC or APE to .m4a.

For those of you familiar with Itunes, when it encounters a file without tags, or tags it doesn't understand, it writes the converted songs to "Unknown Artist" & "Unknown Album" folders in your target directory.

If the tags are understood, it writes it to "Artist" and "Album Title". Make sense?

I can't seem to get the strings right in Itunedencode.exe to have Itunes read the tags and output to the unique directory of the artists and album title?

When transcoding several albums at a time, every song gets dumped into the same directory. It makes isolating and defining 100+ songs a bitch.

Any ideas? Is this possible or am I doing something wrong?

hello - i have things setup as stated above, using foobar2000 v.83 and itunes v6.013, and am getting all of the final files in my itunes directory in a folder structure of unknown artist -> unkown album.

here is the string i am using in foobar2000:

-e "Lossless Encoder" -a "%artist%" -l "%album%" -t "%title%" -g "%genre%" -c "%comment%" -y %date% -n %tracknumber% -i %s -o %d

am i doing something wrong?

Turn on "Keep my iTunes library organized".

When the song is first encoded in iTunes, it doesn't have any tags. So iTunes sticks it in those Unknown folders. After tagging, iTunes will move it if you have iTunes set to do so.
