Hi,
I am new to this and new to flac in particular, so I apologize if this question has been answered before.

My problem is flac files with no metadata. My goal is to insert the correct metadata and change the file names to something more informative.

I have several directories of flac files. I don't know what program was used to rip them. It may have been on a PC or a Mac. It looks like they were ripped in 2006.

Can anyone tell me if any currently available software can make sense of the files listed below?

Thanks.

--------------

Each directory has the same files:

01.flac
02.flac
....
cover.bak
cover.jpg
info.xml
info.xml.backup
info.xml.bak
infonew.xml
infonew.xml.new
prescrub2.xml
rescrub3.xml
titles.tmp

Or, if that doesn’t work for whatever reason, and/or you like this kind of thing, you could (perhaps with the help of someone code-savvy) put together a script that would read the values from the XML file and add them to the corresponding FLAC file via metaflac.
