I'm using bat files to create flac files, and although I never cared about proper tagging, I'm finally trying to get things right.
But because I can't find any documentation about it, at least not in my language (Dutch), I desperately trying to get some help here.
There are probably better ways to do this, but I'm just old fashioned smile.gif

Usually I use something like this to convert wav-files to flac (using a batch file, and sometimes using the command line)

MAKEFLAC.BAT (filename)
flac -8 --picture=front.jpg "Track 01.wav"
flac -8 --picture=front.jpg "Track 02.wav"
flac -8 --picture=front.jpg "Track 03.wav"
flac -8 --picture=front.jpg "Track 04.wav"
flac -8 --picture=front.jpg "Track 05.wav"
flac -8 --picture=front.jpg "Track 06.wav"
flac -8 --picture=front.jpg "Track 07.wav"
flac -8 --picture=front.jpg "Track 08.wav"

Strange enough, I know how to include album art, but how do I get Artist, TrackTitle, Tracknumber, Albumtitle, Year, and Genre in the file?
Thanks in advance.

If those WAV files were ripped from CD, try CUETools.
With a few clicks, it will automatically pull metadata from MusicBraniz/FreeDB, allow you to encode to one of your favorite formats, automatically write tags and cuesheet, and even checks with AccurateRip.
No need to write batch files or something.
