Need EAC To Create A Name Folder Automatically Upon Ripping to FLAC
Hello everyone,

Can someone please tell me exactly how to get EAC to make a new Artist & Album folder every time I rip a CD to FLAC?

My "construction of database import lines" says this:

%tracknr%;%artist%;%title%;%tracklen%

Assuming EAC V1.0 beta 3
EAC Options [F9] Filename tab
%albumartist%\%albumtitle%\%tracknr2% %title%
would give you
Album Artist\Album Title\01 Track Title

Here is my file naming scheme:

%albumartist%\%year% - %albumtitle%\%tracknr2% %title%

and my various artist file naming scheme:

Various Artists\%year% - %albumtitle%\%tracknr2% %title%

What that will do is if I am ripping a studio album, say, and point EAC towards K:\music\

and the disc that I am ripping is, say, Disraeli Gears by Cream, what I will end up with is a directory

K:\music\Cream\1967 - Disraeli Gears

In that directory, the individual files for each track will be named

01 Strange Brew.flac
02 Sunshine of Your Love.flac

and so on and so forth.

pretty similar to what the other poster suggested but then the albums get sorted by release year within the artist folder.
