Do you have Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 (SP2) and Visual C++ 2008 runtime properly installed like the CUEtools Wiki tells?
Try %year% for the album Date and %releasedate% for the Release Date
There is a technical reason in the sense that cuesheets were designed to specify the layout of audio CDs, and audio CDs are always sampled at 44100 Hz and in 16 bits.Not completely sure, but I seem to recall that Gregory is on the record as saying this limitation is perfectly intended and will remain.
CUERipper currently saves metadata edits only when you start ripping, and reloads it only if the system reports that a drive (not necessarily the currently selected drive) has had a disc ejected or loaded. I don't know what might cause the OS to report this erroneously (never happened to me), but i should probably make CUERipper save metadata when this happens.
I think it's silently overwritten by a barcode that's read from the CD during gap detection - the cue should reflect the actual CD medium after all.
Slight chance the Barcode entry could revert back to what was retrieved from the db due to this bug ...
Of course if the Barcode field was blank before the manual entry, the 'other number' isn't coming from the retrieved metadata.
Well, everyone has different expectations of what should be in the cue sheet and what should be in the tags. I feel that cue sheets shouldn't contain any data that wasn't read from the disc itself.
