Freedb - Now 76 Not Recognised


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

 

I use Audiograbber to rip my CD's to MP3, and most of them are recognised by the freeDB utility which is part of Audiograbber. However, when I tried to rip Now 76 yesterday, it was not recognised.

 

As the Now series are really popular I was surpised that it didnt recognise it, and when I googled freeDB it seems that the service is currently offline due to maintenance.

 

I did not have any other CD's to hand to test, but can anyone let me know if 1) freeDB is working, and 2) if Now 76 should be recogised?

 

I know I could type in the details by hand, but Im not in a rush so could wait a few days.

 

Cheers, Mark.

Now 76 only came out this morning, so doubt anyone would have entered the details (let alone submitted it) yet!

Thanks Gadget, I thought that might be the case. Mine arrived from Amazon a little early, so maybe if I wait a few days someone will have uploaded it. If not, I guess I could do it myself!

 

Cheers,

Guys - try to learn how to submit.

The freeDB project relies on users submitting data.

Spending a few minutes to enter Now76 will help thousands, and I'm surprised no one has pointed out this as a solution...

 

Next time you rip a CD, remember that someone has to type in the details- its not automatic!

 

The alternative.... purchase it on download?

Thanks Jason, I had never really considered before that someone somewhere has typed them all in. I assumed that the info was provided by the record companies etc.

 

Apart from physically typing in the details, is it hard to do? If I have time later this week I will try and work out how to do it.

 

Cheers, Mark.

Heh, I have submitted quite a few CDs to the freedb database... Had a few rejected because of the genre-chosen clash... resubmitting is a bit of a pain as you have to put the CD back in the drawer. (And by the time I receive the email to say it was rejected I've moved onto the next CD!).

 

Cheers,

 

David
