View Full Version : Automatic ripping

I'm giving Audiograbber a try and so far I'm impressed, but how do you get
it to automatically start ripping when the CD is inserted? When I insert a
CD it reads and then waits for me to hit 'Grab'. If I could just automate
this bit I'd be v. happy.

Thanks for any info,

Tom

They moved from .de to .org

From Moonroy at the Audiograbber forums:

In the helpfile, in the "extra settings in the inifile":

"AutoRip=False
Change to True if you want Audiograbber to start ripping automatically as soon as a new disc is inserted. It will first connect to freedb and get disc info if that option is also selected."

There is also a setting in the general settings to auto-eject after ripping that you may want to use.

If you get errors with EAC it almost certainly means you use the wrong
method for your CD-drive.
Are you sure you configured it correctly? If you create a test CD you
will be able to find the right command set and features of your drive.
As I understand most modern drive support C2 error detection, which
allows a perfect grab at full speed.

While trying to figure out why slimserver 5.5.1 seems to be crashing on
a Wipe cache command, I went to switch on some of the debugging switches
and realised that I'm not actually sure what they all do. Is there info
anywhere that expains the purpose of all these switches? or at least the
important ones to turn on?

Also, is log.txt a temporary file that only exists while the server is
running? A search in XP Pro fails to find it, even when searching hidden
& system files.

I dont know of any exhaustive list of explanations, but in your case, d_info
should tell you what is going on when you use wipecache. Btw, you shouldn't
need to use that function unless you are having issues with the cached data.

I believe this is just for the purposes of a URL. You can stop the service, run
c:\program files\slimserver\server\slim.exe --d_info --logfile c:\slimlog.txt

This will run the server manually, with d_info debugging on, and write all log
information to the file: c:\slimlog.txt
