Do you think my older hard drives I was describing will work? or are they too old? they are iomegas from 2004 & 2005. I think they are 250 gb each, will one of these be big enough for flac copies of 300+ albums, mp3s of these albums & an itunes library?
I was reading the help file for flac in dBpoweramp 7 they way it was described, the lowest level 0 was the least & the highest level was the best, that led me to believe that level 8 was the least amount of compression or best quality. I guess I missunderstood.
Right now I am using the trial version, the art & folder structure seems to be retained when ripping to flac, or doing any first rip, but when I do a batch convert from the flac album, the art is not there, is this where I input a DSP action for art? in the action box for in options for batch convert? does the rest of the metadata stay as well?
right now on the trial, does all the metadata stay & art stay when doing a flac rip? or do I need to register first? I dont want to waste my time ripping if I do not have full functionality of a trial version, if this is the case, I will just register.
If I wanted to make a duplicate Cd to play from the flac file how do I go about doing that? I am very hard on my cds & I will want a copy to play in a Cd player.
I looked at the bottom left corner of the screen at the rip to tab, & click to see the options, but there is no multi-encode option, at least I did not see one. There is flac,mp3,wave,apple,nero,oorg, etc but no multi encode, where else is it? do you mean there is a multi encode function when I am batch converting from the flac files? or is there this option when I am doing the flac rip? I would like to be able to do both flac & mp3 at the same time.
I know I am asking alot of questions, but I want to have a good grasp of this before I start on this big project, it is alot of time & energy. My school classes will start up again later this month & I will not have as much time.
