XLD Not Picking Up Tags

I'm new to the board and looking for help with XLD or validating that there is a bug in the software. I installed XLD (latest version - 20130127) and using it to rip my CD collection to ALAC. I am running mountain lion 10.8. The issue I have is that the software is not picking up the tags for the CD.


[*]XLD is set to automatically connect to FreeDB on port 80 (I double checked that server and path are correct). I can ping the server with no issues.
[*]XLD is set to "add tags to the output file if possible" (metadata section)
[*]I'm using a custom file name format under the "General" section. It is /%A/%T/%n - %t

The software rips the CD tracks but they come up as unknown artist, unknown album on the folders and unknown track. I've been fighting it for over 3 hours and about to pull my hair out! If I go to default file name settings, it works, but I think only because it is pulling off of what OS X pulls in on the finder screen when I load a CD.

I've searched the forums and the web and found no answers. Can anyone here help me? Thanks in advance!

Does it find and show you the tags before ripping, only to somehow lose them before creating the files?
