I have about 300 CD’s in my audio collection. I want to rip them to my computer as MP3’s and then transfer them to my IPOD. I own every CD, so there is nothing illegal going on here, but I have this issue when ripping my audio files to my computer.
I want the files to be ripped to specific directories. Most MP3 ripping software will do this, but, I’m running into this problem.
I want them ripped to:
C:\MP3<artists name>\Song title
Most software again, will do this with switches in the options, but, I have several different CD’s that are on Various Artists CD’s. When the software detects that the artists name directory has been created during a previous rip, it doesn’t place the song in the existing directory, it automatically creates a new directory then the artists directory then the song title like this:
C:\MP3\various artists\artists name\song title
Does anyone know of software that will automatically check for existing directories, or a switch setting in some software ripper that will do this? It’s really annoying as I don’t want to rip each song title manually so it’s placed in the proper artists directory created during a previous rip.
Anyone have any suggestions? I"ve tried a multitude of software packages but all do the same thing. Apparently, they either don’t check for an existing directory, or the switch forces the creation of a new directory.
