Full disclosure: This is my first post and I’m not a very tech savvy person. I looked and thought I found this topic in the forum but it was about .WAV files. If this has been answered just point me in the right direction.
I was directed to MusicBrainz from Olive Audio. Olive made a product called the 04HD which is essentially a music server. Sort of like a big, super high quality iPod. One by one I ripped my CDs into the Olive as .flac files as recommended by the manufacturer. It works great and sounds terrific. They’ve discontinued the 04HD and are now producing the Olive One. To transfer my music collection from my Olive 04HD to the Olive One they recommend using KODI XBMC version 12.3 but they warned that it might not bring the .flac (metadata?) over. I did as instructed and the files transferred over but without .flac so they won’t transfer to my Olive One. I manually added .flac to all the songs on a few CDs and they transferred to the Olive One fine.
Is there a way to use MusicBrainz to add the .flac? I went through the process of “Adding Files”, selecting “Cluster”, Lookup, etc and everything performed as advertised but I cannot see the .flac extension on the files. NOTE: Under Options I did select “Rename”, “Move Files” and “Save Tags” Might I have missed a step?
Once I get the green check mark is that it? Are those the improved/fixed files? I’ll copy one of those to my desktop but do not see the .flac.
I hope there’s a simple answer. I have more than 1,000 CDs in my collection so doing it manually would be debilitating.
Finally, if I am not on the correct forum please let me know
Thanks in advance.
