    Multi CD Ripping?

    Hey all
    I've got a 2 CD set which consists of three parts:
    Film Score Presentation
    Original Soundtrack Album
    Additional Music
    Typically I would rip a 2 CD set into the same directory, with track numbers running consecutively to the end, thus appearing as one long album.
    Is there a way to rip it so it appears as one album in the album list but would then present the three afore mentioned discs when selected?

    Cheers, Paul

    Use same album name but have DISC tag, 1, 2, 3. And in LMS settings set option to show multidisc albums as single album.

    I believe you would really need to set "Group Discs" to "treat multi-disc sets as multiple albums". However this is a global setting and would apply to all multi-disc sets created with identical album titles using the disc 1, 2, 3, etc technique. Your method of numbering tracks as 1 through n on multi-disc sets without using the disc number tag should still show as a single album.
    Main system - Rock Solid with LMS 7.9.1 Official on WHS 2011 - 2 Duets and Squeeseslave
    Cabin system - Rock solid with LMS 7.9.1 Official on Win10 Pro - 1 RPi 3 Model B/Hifiberry DAC+ Pro/PiCorePlayer and Squeezeslave
    Headphones and car - Android phone/Bluetooth w/full library on MicroSD card - PowerAmp music player app (similar to Material Skin)

    Agree. I had it backwards.
