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!

OK. Just to confirm: Does this happen with all CDs?

Anyway, please read this thread, try all the suggested solutions, and let us know whether any of them help.
