When people Recording layouts are so random that I've never heard anybody say something like "track 2 on disc 3. Re: How to rip multi CD sets to produce a single album I used to leave the disc folders intact, but over time, I realized that that served no function.
In fact, I've really not found disc distinctions in multi-disc sets to ever have any utility That space limitation isn't relevant in a digital music library. So no, I don't leave the original folders intact. On really long operas, I'll put the tracks into subfolders by act, but even that isn't necessary. As you say, players will organize and allow you to navigate based on tags Last edited by BrodyBoy; at PM. Re: How to rip multi CD sets to produce a single album Thanks for the info. I suppose leaving the original folders intact allows you to check the original layout, should that ever be necessary.
Also, I assume any reference in the tags to disc number should be removed? Re: How to rip multi CD sets to produce a single album Some players balk at disc numbers and it messes with track order, some don't.
I remove them to avoid any of that. I used to leave the disc folders intact, but over time, I realized that that served no function. Last edited by jfo; at PM.

The tracks still appeared as two separate albums in LMS, with identical names Untitled - Big Quarters - Zip Disks Break II (CD) the proper new track numbering. I couldn't see any differences in the tags other than track names. I moved the 2nd album tracks into the same folder as the 1st album, rescanned, Untitled - Big Quarters - Zip Disks Break II (CD), and they now appear as one album. I thought LMS would consolidate the tracks based only on the tag info. I double checked all the tags in both albums to ensure there was no difference and did a full rescan.
This worked and the tracks are now in 1 album on LMS. Your 2nd CD set experiment illustrates that album folders are not determinant. You may recall, in my first post, I suggested doing all this tag manipulation post-rip in a dedicated tag editor. This is one of the many reasons to do so. It's a much more efficient way to absolutely ensure all pertinent tags Untitled - Big Quarters - Zip Disks Break II (CD) the same by simply selecting all and applying the desired edits Untitled - Big Quarters - Zip Disks Break II (CD), and to Untitled - Big Quarters - Zip Disks Break II (CD) for "hidden" tags that could be causing issues.
In my editor, for example, an "Extended Tags" button opens a pop-up that shows all the tags associated with a file or groups of files. This can be invaluable, because most tag-display functions in players, dBp, etc. There can be all kinds of stuff you don't even know is there! Seeing an album's tags laid out in spreadsheet form, and checking the extended tags, helps ensure better accuracy and consistency, and makes quick work of this kind of troubleshooting.

They were one of the most experienced players I too use mp3tag for a bit of tag cleanup just after ripping anything.
