    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.

    R.

    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.
