I want to find the information to a cd, where I only have the .cda files, not the actual cd and no audio data.
Can I open those files from a directory without having the actual disc? Picard should be able to derive the necessary information to query the database server even without the actual audio data, but I didn’t find a way to open .cda files. It was not possible to point Picard to the directory with the .cda files instead of an actual cd drive.
Alternatively I also calculated the CDDB1 id manually from the .cda files, but I haven’t found a way query the database directly, using the CDDB1 id.
In the end, I don’t care if I do the query based on the calculated CDDB1 id or based on the .cda files. Currently I cannot figure out any of those methods using Picard. If anyone can provide some pointers, this would be appreciated!
