Thread: Foobar Question

  1. #1

    Foobar Question

    Right, I have nearly done ripping my music (until I get a bigger HD). Gonna use Foobar to do Replaygain however when I load up Foobar and scan for Flac files, it comes up with all my files however on some of the files the duration is stated just by '?'. What is this? How do I rectify it? The album is already in list however it is repeated but the duration is just '?'

    Do these files play in Foobar? Are they maybe 24/48 or 24/96 recordings?
    More than 49,064 songs on 4,551 albums by 3,084 artists.

    Mostly flac, some mp3 and aac.

    no, Ive used EAC to rip all my files so I cant see why they would all be different recordings?

    Have you happened to move them since you added them to foobar?
    If the rule you followed brought you to this, of what use is the rule.

    Using cue sheets it looks like. I don't use these myself, so I don't know what normal behavior should be with foobar and cue sheets.

    So could it be that the problem files are the cue sheet files themselves? Any problem with .flac files? Sorry if this is a stupid question, like I said, I don't use cue sheets.

    You may want to read around on the forums about cue sheets. Some people use them, I suppose they must have a reason. You may want to investigate more before deleting them. I don't think they should be a problem to leave them. I can do everything I want to do with tags, though. Perhaps a setting on EAC whether to rip with cue sheets or not?

    I ask again: are any of the files that are giving you problems .flac files, or just the .cue files as in your example?
