Multiple CD discs

Hey guys,

I am trying to organize my multi-disc CD's into one theme. Right now they are a bit of a mess. I want them all to look like this: Artist/Album/Disc #/ 01 Track.mp3. Will auto-organize do this? I tried this before and couldn't get it the way I wanted it.

Code: Select all

.\<Artist>\<Album>\<Disc#>\<Track#:2> <Title>
If needed, replace ".\" at beginning with desired destination. Eg: "C:\My music\"

Thanks a lot. Is there a way to get the word "Disc" displayed before the number? For example, Disc 1, instead of just 1.

Just add what you want in the mask:

Code: Select all

.\<Artist>\<Album>\Disc <Disc#>\<Track#> <Title>
Note however that if the disk field is empty (in the tag), using "\<Disc#>\" will make MM strip it, resulting to ..."<Album>\Track#>"...
With "\Disc <Disc#>\" it will result to ..."<Album>\Disc\Track#>"...

I have run into a slight problem. When I use the path, it organizes the CD the way I want it, but the CD's are still split. For example, they were organized like this:
Aerosmith/
The Ultimate Hits (1 of 2)
The Ultimate Hits (2 of 2).

When I use your path, I get this:
Aerosmith/
The Ultimate Hits (1 of 2)/Disc 1
The Ultimate hits (2 of 2)/Disc 2

I want this:
Aerosmith/
The Ultimate Hits/
Disc 1
Disc 2

Also, I want to get rid of the (1 of 2) portion in the album title as I don't need it anymore. How can I remove that from all my multi-CD albums without editing every tag? I have the RegExp Find and Replace script which I think could be useful, but am not sure how to use it to remove that. Also, couldn't find it in the presets.

So, I have figured out that the path that you gave me will work if I remove the (1 of 2) (2 of 2) portion from the album name. The only problem is, there is know way to tell if it is a multi-disc CD in MM. So, how do I label my tracks in the following format: 1-01, 1-02, 2-01. 2-01, for CD#, track# ?

How about numbering track# to 101, 102, 103... 201, 202, 203.. ? See this post.

Use Auto-Increment TrackNumbers script to do it. See this post.

Then use Auto-Organize mask similar to:

Code: Select all

\<Album Artist>\<Album>\<Track#:3> - <Title>
Good luck!

:~)

Is there any way to use the RegExp Find and Replace to do this?

simply to amend the <Album> field with the <Disc#>?

something like

<Album>=<Album> CD<Disc#>

That no problem for your format - you/MM don't need to know whether an album is multi-disc.

> So, how do I label my tracks in the following format: 1-01, 1-02, 2-01. 2-01, for CD#, track# ?

In Auto-Organise Destination, put .\<Album>\<Disc#>-<Track#:2> .

I've found this to be a great pattern:

<Artist> - <Album>$if(<Disc#>>0,\Disc <Disc#>,)\<Track#:2> - <Title>

This will put songs in folders for discs if they exist.. Just have to make sure that your single disc albums don't have a disc # associated to it..
