I have over 500 CDs ripped in FLAC or APE format for audio-streaming into hi-fi equipment. I tried to transcode few of them to MP3 for use with Sansa Express. Software I used was CDex ver 1.7.
In the CDex ‘Setting’ I selected:
‘Lame MP3 Encoder (version 1.32, engine 3.97 Beta 2 MMX’
ID3 Tag Vesion: ID3-V1 & ID3-V2
Problem is that when playing the transcoded MP3 files in Sansa Express, album and track details get messed up. Sometime it track name shown is the same as the file name. And sometimes Express show ‘Unknown Album’, ‘Unknown Artist’, ‘Unknown Genere’ .
All is well if I rip the CD again in MP3. But I would like to avoid this, cos it takes about 15 minutes per CD.
Can anyone advice? Any other rippers/transcoders out there that is best with Sansa Express?
