Hi Colin,

thank you for your post. I will try to answer the questions and explain the issues.

I just installed Discogs-Tagger for the first time. It seems to work "kind-of", but the behaviour is different to both the description at the head of this thread and the PDF on how to configure the link to a Discogs account, so i'm having some trouble.

Issues
-------
  • Initially after installing Discogs-Tagger (DT), I got access errors on a VBA file (fixed by running MM as admin a single time)
  • When selecting "Auto-Tag from Web" in MM, the new tagger comes up immediately, in MusicBrainz mode?
  • There is no option for the addon under the "Options" button at the top right of the tagging window in MM. The choices there remain the default Amazon sites around the world (which don't work now), but there are no choices for the addon? In particular no option to switch between MusicBrainz and Discogs as a data source
  • I already have a Discogs account, but the addon doesn't give me the pop up menu described in the PDF that deals with setting up a link to a Discogs account
  • I attempted to set up the Discogs link manually, but the addon section of the MM Tools->Options has fields for an access token AND an "Access Token Secret", whereas Discogs itself has function that gives you an access token only, but no secret?
  • There's a separate option in Discogs to create a full client application record, but that needs more information like OAuth redirection URLs that i'm not sure where to find (or if they are even relevant)
So, i'm pretty confused at this point. Is there somewhere in the 77 pages (!) of this thread an updated set of installation instructions, or at least a few tips to help work out how to get the tagger fully configured?

--UPDATE--
It looks as if, if you install the DT addon for "all users" you have to perform the whole installation and setup as admin, which I suppose makes some sense (once you've worked it out!). So in case anyone else has the same problem-
Install for "All users" should be the favourite way. I installed Mediamonkey into a different folder (e.g. c:\MediaMonkey) cause i had the same problems installing DT and some other AddOns. Installing into a folder outside c:\Program Files\ doesn't need admin-rights.
The missing option to swap between Discogs and Musicbrainz could be a problem with missing admin-rights, too.

If you in Musicbrainz mode the addon doesn't show the pop up menu for connecting to Discogs.

You can't open the Discogs website and set up the link to Discogs Tagger manually. With the option at the Discogs website you can create an own addon.
You need to open it using the pop up menu.

  • If you hit permissions problems during installation OR if you want to install for "All users" you have to run Mediamonkey from an admin account to install Discogs Tagger (DT).
  • You have to complete the configuration of DT as admin, including setting up the Discogs access token before reverting to using your normal user account.
  • The "access tokens" you can create manually from the Discogs user interface appear to be COMPLETELY DIFFERENT to the ones you'll have created if you follow the built-in DT process. Neither the "Client Access Token" procedure or the "Create Application" function in Discogs appear to give you a token and secret combo you can use from DT, you have to use the DY built-in process.
  • I have no idea what happens if you accidentally delete or damage the Access Token and Secret that DT stores from the built-in process. Maybe the DT prompt to create a token comes up automatically if a valid token isn't found?
Yeah, thats right. If you accidentally delete or damage the Access Token and/or Secret the pop up menu will show up again for creating a new connection to Discogs.

Sorry for having some problems installing and configuring Discogs Tagger. But i hope using DT will save your time. If you have any questions, please post them here !

Hi crap_inhuman,

I'm a long time user of your essential addon, but overnight, everytime i try to use discogs autotag, i get the following
messages :

Error #-2146697208 - Msxml6.dll
Echec du téléchargement de la ressource spécifiée

File "C:\Users\MyName\Appdata\Roaming\Mediamonkey\Scipts\DiscogsWebTag.vbs" Line 6257, Column 3

Then :

Error during script execution
Echec du téléchargement de la ressource spécifiée

I removed the extension, updated MM to the latest version, updated Windows 10, then updated your extension
but unfortunately always the same.

Oddly, the MusicBrainz tagger works, but for me it's pale in comparison to Discogs tagger.
I noticed that the option of choosing Discogs tagger in the upper right corner disapeared (but the extension is stil appearing in the options)

Do you think it's possible to fix it ?

Many thanks

I have this same problem on 6 systems and even have a few friends having the same problem

it is nothing to do with not having correct software I myself on all the 6 systems which are various operating systems have checked everything is upto date

Any solution?

Thanks in advance
I just tried it and the Discogs Tagger works like a charm. Did you try it again ? Maybe the Discogs website didn't work for a short time.

Now it kinda works, if I set the tracks to 1 and 2.
These are good news.

The Tagger auto-tags both tracks to "B", but the Titles are correct.
That's weird. Mediamonkey doesn't tag 2 songs with the same discogs-track. It always try to match the song names from the selected songs with the songs found at discogs. Automatic tagging doesn't work 100%, if the song names are equal.

If you have many LP's with same song title or song title like "track1.mp3" and "track2.mp3" you should try the Discogs Batch Tagger. It's like the Discogs Tagger, but it doesn't use the matching from mediamonkey. It use tracking order. If the files have no tracking order or the tracking order is wrong, you can simply move the files in the lower part of the window, so it match with the songs.

If you give it a try, i would be happy if you give me a feedback, if this Addon helps you or if you have problems using it.

Best regards,
Sven

It has worked before for me with automatic tagging of the tracks, when I have named the files after the LP track, e.g.

C:\VRip\A1.flac
C:\VRip\B1.flac

Hi,

I set the track numbers to A and B respectively in MM but I get the same results (question marks).

Can it have something to do with the use of LP track indexing (A1, A2, B1,... etc.)?
The LP track indexing is no Problem.

The question mark says, that mediamonkey can't assign the tracks to the tracks from discogs.

Please try to set them to 1 and 2 in the mediamonkey library.

I have set the check boxes but I only get question marks instead of song titles.
I tried to post a screenshoot but I get the message
"You can’t post image, email or url links that are external to this domain. Please remove"

Instead I have sent you a screenshot via your website. I hope that is ok.
Hi Peter,

i got your screenshot, thank you. I answer your email but gmail refused it. :( I think i have to check my email configuration about authentication settings.

Please try to set the track numbers for the 2 Songs in mediamonkey and try to tag again.


Best regards,
Sven

I tried the release and can't see any problem tagging the song titles.

Did you set the check boxes near the song title?

Hi,

I recently encountered a problem.Trying to tag a ripped vinyl album, Discogs Tagger failed to fill in the song titles. The other tags seemed to work. I tried to install an older version but it did not help. I also tried with two different albums, but the problem was the same.

I use MM 4.1.23.1881 and Discogs Tagger 5.64.

I have used Discogs Tagger for many years, without problems. It is a truly great tool.
Hi,

which album you try to tag ? The Discogs release number would help me to reproduce your problem.
