Plextools, DAE, freedb and Genre



When ripping audio CDs using Plextools, it seems to ignore the genre returned by freedb. Although it displays the correct genre in the pop-up window (under “category”), the actual genre tag that gets written into the file is always “Pop”. This happens regardless of the target codec (Monkey’s, Ogg, FLAC - not tried MP3 yet). It happens in all versions of Plextools I’ve tried (including 2.20). Is this a bug, or am I missing something in the Preferences setup?


Well I just got my PX-716SA drive about a month ago and I’ve only recently started to rip cds using PlexTools. It does the same thing with mp3s. I now use Exact Audio Copy which allows you to change the genre before ripping.
