GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 669449
Use MusicBrainz NGS web service (double CD lookup broken)
Last modified: 2012-02-06 09:50:14 UTC
I use Sound-Juicer for all my CD ripping (and I do a bit) and love it to bits.
Recently I started having an issue that double or multiple CD sets do not work correctly any more--instead they list all tracks from both CDs when either CD is inserted. This causes a number of issues when ripping either CD. In short, SJ has become pretty useless for ripping multi-CD sets, particularly for the second or subsequent discs.
Apparently this is because Sound-Juicer has not been ported to use the MusicBrainz NGS web service:
I haven't found any program that is as simple to use or as good at ripping as SJ, so it is really important to me that this is fixed, rather than me just moving to a product that works for double CDs.
I realise that it isn't much, but I will donate US$20 if this is fixed and would encourage others who have this issue to do the same.
You'll be glad to know that this is fixed in the development releases and will be in GNOME 3.4 then.

Thank you very much--I thought I had seen something about it but couldn't find it because it had already been fixed!
I'll look forward to it trickling down to Ubuntu.
