I tried foobar, it seems to dump the output from multiple folders (where original files reside) to one output folder with all files in one big pile rather than in individual folders. If you are familiar with Foobar maybe you can help me with settings to be sure it is happening correctly. Thanks
Something about how FreeRip3 rips CDs to FLAC has kept my Sansa Fuze from reading the files. It sees them, when you hit play it rapidly scans through the whole folder of tracks but won’t play them. I’ve researched online no luck, others have tried changing encoding level, no luck, I think it has to do with the flac ID tags that FreeRip may handle them differently. Others have tried batch fixing the ID tags using mp3tag that didn’t help either. I’m thinking of reencoding with a program known to work with FUZE but unless it is automated, I can’t invest the time to do folder by folder.
I need a good batch converter from FLAC to MP3 (free and preserving folder structure after the recode) and hope along the way the MP3 tags don’t get messed up because of this issue.
