[QUOTE=cholla;2233820]Read these two posts I think they will help.
The numerical method used by AllanDeGroot could probably be applied to give you the chronological order.He applied it to the tracks but I see no reason it couldn’t be applied to albums.
EAC can go directly to mp3 if it needs to .I already have dbPoweramp.
We discussed EAC & another good program CDex for doing the conversions if you need to convert anything to mp3.They will also tag but the seperate tagging program has more control.
My albums folders/sub-directories are also numbered before the name of the file for that exact reason.
And the page you give a link to explains that it does so:)
But to give it in a nutshell:
As I Just finished typing in another post I really trying to play the five rush albums from “Power Windows” through “Counterparts” in order and having Counterparts (chronologically last) play first because of it’s alphabetical order
The number I assign each album is a two digit numeral
in the order they appear on the "discography, main releases"
page on allmusic.com with the discography page for the band
on wikipedia as a confirmation.
Live albums are included in the list of releases but are appended
with an “L”
Greatest hits albums are given a seperate numerical sequence
starting with a “C” for “compliation”, which are listed on a seperate
page at allmusic.com
so AC-DC’s “Who Made Who” (actually a movie soundtrack) is listed as “C01:” while “Back in Black” is simply “07”
I also make a note for “Remastered” albums by appending an
upper case “R”, so the subfolder (album) for "Back In Black"
becomes “07R Back In Black” to distinguish it from the original
release version. (they do not sound exactly the same)
It’s all done with with nested “directories” and "subdirectories"
or as some call them “Folders” and “subfolders”
and it allows you to find anything really fast because each album folder
even in extreem cases holds no more than about 20 files
(presuming you ignore silent spacer tracks that some artists put on their albums to “hide” tracks)
It’s It’s a rather simple branched logic path.
following the pattern of an adress label. Read from the bottom up.
Think about the best winning strategy for playing the game "20 questions"
the classic first question is "Animal, Vegetable or Mineral?"
If the answer is “animal” the next question is "Land or Marine?"
and after that it’s “Predator, Herbivore or Parasite”
OR organized like the branches of a tree…
read this topic as well, I essentially repeat
