View Full Version : Multi-Disc Busted?

Sure, but if I make them the same at rip/compress time, the track nums will still need to be manually adjusted or the player will "interlace" them (I assume and all that goes with it).

I thought that the feature was designed to handle this for me. See subsequent email.

It sounds like you have different album names in your tags: "_Live in
Brazil (Disc 1 of 2)_" and "_Live in Brazil (Disc 1 of 2)_", and
SlimServer thinks that they are two different albums. If you change
the tags to be: "_Live in Brazil)_" and then add the appropriate tags
for disc number, then you should be in better shape.

Also, note that if you do this, you'll probably want to adjust the
track numbers so that they are unique and play back in the order you
like.
