cd info from freedb

Post by smartmart »

Hi guys. Does anybody know why i can't get info from Freedb for alot of my cd's?. They are bought cd's not copies. When I try to get info from freedb, I have a little wait and a dialog box appears saying "no cd audio found, please insert a cd". I dont understand this as MM will play the cd's but only show track numbers and no names. Media player also plays them when inserted. I didnt have this problem with another music data base which uses Gracenote. Any ideas please..

Yes. I have the same problem. In 2.4 all this worked flawlessly, but since update - doesn't. This is on a windows 98 machine, and I noticed from your other post that you're running ME. It seems to be a problem associated with older versions of Windows. Only a debug log will find the error(s) I think! When I've got more time, I'll submit something.

1. Is the correct drive selected?
2. Already tried to swtch FreeDB Mode from CDDBP to HTTP? Solved my probs caused by an external firewall.

Believe me. That's all been tried and checked.

There seems to be a slight bug in MediaMonkey. Trailing spaces in the freeDB domain name stop it resolving properly. I would suggest you put a filter on to remove trailing spaces.

This is a paricular problem because if you do a simple cut-and-paste from the freedb web site you get a trailing space.

I have the same problem after I upgraded to the new version of MediaMonkey.

I'm not sure what you mean by adding a filter regarding trailing spaces. How do I do that? Is MediaMonkey going to fix the bug?
