I might be able to help... :)

I shall try and keep this as generic as I can, not knowing if you're on
Linux or Windows.

1. Copy the script to a a new file and save it as flac_replaygain.pl (or
whatever name you choose).

2. Change the following line to point to where the metaflac program
lives on your system:

my $metaflac = "/usr/bin/metaflac";

For windows, you might need something like this:
****** Not tested ******
my $metaflac = "c:\flac\metaflac.exe"
****** Not tested ******
(Let me know if this works)

3. Open up a shell (command) prompt.

4. Type the following:

perl -w /path/to/flac_replaygain.pl /path/to/your/music/folder

and press Enter

You can also change into your music folder and run the script - if no
directory is given on the command line it defaults to the current directory.

That's it.

Hope this gets you started.

That depends...

If you are using linux and all 7 drives are symlinked into a single
music directory then no.

If you are using Windows and all 7 drives have shortcuts in your music
directory then no.

Otherwise, yes.
