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?

What exactly are you transcoding?
Like, what is the source filename and type (ie flac,ape,mp3,etc..), and what tags does it have? But I suspect the file may be tag-less because I experienced a similar issue when I converted a classical music mp3 file which had no tags.

You can mail me a copy of the file to test, if you like. See bottom of my earlier post.
