Hello everyone,

I have started to rip some CDs with Exact Audio Copy 1.0 beta 3, and I have a problem with album arts. Really I have two problems.

The CDs I am ripping are not very common, so I scan the album art and fill in the artist and title manually.

The problems are:

1. When I rip, the album art is not included in the tracks (or is a incorrect one).
2. The album art file doen't have the .jpg extension, as you can see in the screenshot.

Those problems doen't appear when a CD is in the database.

My command-line options: -8 -V -T "ARTIST=%artist%" -T "TITLE=%title%" -T "ALBUM=%albumtitle%" -T "DATE=%year%" -T "TRACKNUMBER=%tracknr%" -T "GENRE=%genre%" -T "PERFORMER=%albuminterpret%" -T "COMPOSER=%composer%" %haslyrics%--tag-from-file=LYRICS="%lyricsfile%"%haslyrics% -T "ALBUMARTIST=%albumartist%" -T "ALBUM ARTIST=%albumartist%" -T "DISCNUMBER=%cdnumber%" -T "TOTALDISCS=%totalcds%" -T "TOTALTRACKS=%numtracks%" -T "COMMENT=EAC V1.0 beta 2, Secure Mode, Test & Copy, AccurateRip, FLAC -8" %source% -o %dest%

Thank you for helping and sorry for my poor English.

I think you just need to make sure you convert your scanned artwork into JPEG.

Once you have done this you can add album art using various programs like mp3tag etc smile.gif

But they don't have a .jpg extension, so your computer can't recognise them as pictures. If you're sure they're jpeg files then change the filename to include the .jpg extension.

Try opening them and see whether the images are actually alright. right click >open with >picasa/windows picture and fax viewer.
After u had scanned the covers maybe the software didn't add the extension to the end of the file.
Just add .jpg at the end of the image file and hit enter. and it is recommended to disable the extensions for known file types.

Yes, but the file you can see in the screenshot is not my scanned file, is te file that EAC creates when you rip. I put my scanned album art in EAC, and then the program creates other file in the directoy you are ripping in with the name of the album and no JPEG extension.

But as I can see, neither of two problems are really a big problem if y put the jpeg extension manually and if I use mp3tag to include the album art.

Not true. Disabling extensions can lead to exactly this sort of confusion (although, to be clear, I don't think it's causing the problem, but merely adding a layer of obfuscation). It's fine for your grandmother, but not for people who do more than skype and send email! With extensions enabled you can see what's going on.

My scanned files



If I put the Album art.jpg in EAC, then it transforms to this



I think now you can understand it better. And it doesn't embbed the cover in the tracks.

I have tried changing the album art with MP3TAG, but VLC is showing the same album art that before.

In EAC's main window press F11, select "External Compression" tab and uncheck "Add ID3 tag"!
If it really had been checked try renaming your .flac-file to .mp3, remove the ID3 tag with Mp3tag
and rename file back to .flac.


Greetings, ...

First of all: Use the latest Exact Audio Copy.

Do you really use the command line you've been posting? It doesn't tag pictures!
It's missing

%hascover%--picture="%coverfile%" %hascover%


My EAC 1.0 Beta 3 command line is:

CODE
--no-padding --no-replay-gain -8 -V -T "ARTIST=%artist%" -T "TITLE=%title%" -T "ALBUM=%albumtitle%" -T "DATE=%year%" -T "TRACKNUMBER=%tracknr1%" -T "GENRE=%genre%" -T "COMMENT=%comment%" -T "ALBUMARTIST=%albumartist%" -T "COMPOSER=%composer%" %haslyrics%--tag-from-file=LYRICS="%lyricsfile%" %haslyrics%-T "DISCNUMBER=%cdnumber%" -T "TOTALDISCS=%totalcds%" -T "TOTALTRACKS=%numtracks%" %hascover%--picture="%coverfile%" %hascover%%source% -o %dest%


Try it, please and best regards, ...

First of all thanks for helping.

With my command line happens this:


And with yours:


But when I open the VLC, the album art shown is also incorrect. I have realized that if I clic in Clear and then I add the album art it works, so I supose its something about ID-tag...

... looks like VLC is caching metadata but I don't use it so I'm just guessing ...

WMP and Songbird doesn't show anything. Which program do you use?

Thanks, but I prefer VLC to WMP. In any case, I hope somebody know how to solve my problem.

Problem solved by clearing VLC cache memory.

For the .jpg extension, writing it manually.
