I can't receive Metadata with the new version

Post by Merowinger86 » Sat Apr 10, 2021 4:15 pm

Hello!

I have a problem with the CD ripper since I've updated to version 9.3 The program stucks in this window:
Unbenannt 1.jpg
Unbenannt 1.jpg (40.75 KiB) Viewed 1616 times
(Why does the program sending a request to Musicbrainz while querying Discogs, btw?)

I can't even cancel, it doesn't work. I have to kill the programm via the task manager.
Is there a way to receive the setup of the version before?

Did you disable GD3, WMP/Gracenote and Freedb ?

Discogs does not recognize the CDs from CD layout, therefore the EZ CD Audio Converter will first query the other services to find out more about the inserted CD.

Discogs should not hang on the musicbrainz.org query, I can't see it happening here.

It has something to do with Discogs, when I disable it as a source it works fine.

I have exactly the same problem - when discogs is enabled, the metadata retrieval hangs, and when it's disabled, all is well.

Actually, it's even worse than that - the retrieval doesn't just hang, you can't cancel it either; all you can do is kill the process with Task Manager.

Same here. I'm glad I'm not the only one with that problem.

I will investigate what may be causing it. It does not happen here. Meanwhile, you can disable Discogs.

Can you connect to gnudb.org with your web browser ?

Yes.

The interesting thing - as you can see in the screenshot included in the first post - is that the discogs query appears to be sending a request to musicbrainz.org. Is that just a typo, or is the wrong database being queried?

Discogs can not recognize the CD from its layout. Therefore EZ CD Audio Converter will first query the MusicBrainz, then Freedb (now GnuDb) to recognize the CD.

Happens with 9.3.1 also ?

I checked the code and only change from 9.2.1 to 9.3 is the server address of Freedb and that does not affect MusicBrainz query. :shock:

Does it happen with every CD or just one particular ? :?:

I've just installed the new version 9.3.1 and now it works with the CD I had the error in the first place. :)

I don't know why, but now it seems to work.

Everything seems to be OK with 9.3.1 - I just tried re-ripping the CD that gave me problems yesterday, along with a couple of others, and the metadata retrieval worked fine.

I found a bug in MusicBrainz query used inside the Discogs query. Missing line that is included in the normal MusicBrainz query.

I will post you a test version can you confirm it's fixed ?

It could have been the faulty memory module I discovered after releasing v9.3. Lot of strange things started to happen on my computer. That's why I quickly recompiled v9.3.1. I couldn't really say if there were some bits wrong here and there in v9.3.
