Eac Tag Structure And Other Questions
Most of the time I use MJ for my ripping needs. It works for me.  Anyway, I have several brand new discs' that cannot be ripped by MJ, and EAC manages to get them after a long drawn out battle. With, what I believe, are poorly pressed or burned cds. I don't know, or care, as long as I can rip them. And EAC does manage this.

Now to the meat of the problem. I think I have the tagging structure set up pretty close to how MJ is now. However, the files are ripped into one folder:Artist. Is there a way for EAC to also add an Album folder to the Artist folder that the files can be inserted into? This I can correct with MJ, but would just as soon have it done on the initial rip. Any thoughts would be welcome here. I just do not use EAC enough to have figured this out.

Next question(s). I have searched for explanations on some of the settings in EAC here and elsewhere.

Things I did not find a whole lot of answers to are:

> Copy Selected Tracks Index Based. <

> Copy Image & Create Cue Sheet. <

Without much experience on the above, this seemed the most obvious place to ask. Any pointers will be appreciated.

You can use \ to create subdirs. Change you naming scheme to something like this:
Code: [Select]
%A\%C (%Y)\%N. %T

Copy Image & Create Cue Sheet

This will rip to one big .wav. The .cue has all the individual track positions, gaps and such. If you want a 100% copy this is the method to use.
Useful Winamp-plugin: mp3cue

Copy Selected Tracks Index Based


For some CDs the tracks is divided into several indexes. Usually the music for a track start at index 01.

For example, "Jean-Michel Jarre - Rendez-Vous" track 2 has 4 indexes. From the .cue file:
Code: [Select]
  TRACK 02 AUDIO
   TITLE "Second Rendez-vous"
   PERFORMER "Jean Michel Jarre"
   INDEX 01 02:54:17
   INDEX 02 05:53:57
   INDEX 03 08:47:32
   INDEX 04 11:25:05


By using this extraction-method, EAC will create 4 files for this track: 02.01 title.wav, 02.02 title.wav, 02.03 title.wav and 02.04 title.wav.

Hope this make some sense!

The tag naming scheme you suggested still wasn't quite what I was looking for. But it at least gave me the idea of how to do it, and this is what I came up with...

%D\%C\%T %N %Y

This creates a folder for the artist, as well as the album where the tracks for the latter reside. Thanks again for the hint, " \ ", on creating directories.
