This feels like a newbie being stupid question, as it feels this ought to be easy but…
I’m trying to add a multi CD release. For the first CD, I go through lookup CD on picard, submit the CD to the site, go through the process to check it doesn’t match an existing release, then add release.
For subsequent CDs, it makes sense to me that I should be able to do Add Medium and autopopulate things with the correct number and length of tracks at this stage, together with the Disc IDs. But I can’t find a way of doing this. The only option seems to be to fill in the entire release, and then subsequently go through the CDs to link Disc IDs to the release individually. (Which is more tedious than it should be as you have to repeat the search each time: why can’t you just go straight to the release by ID?)
The documentation seems to imply that it ought to be possible though. One route is by loading CD stubs, but I cannot find any information on how to create them. The other seems to be by going via DiscIDs (or the TOC) which I have access to from Picard, for instance in the URL it passes to Picard when you look the second CD up. However, the DiscIDs available are only the one for the first CD or blank (you can’t enter one) and I can’t see how to get anything out of Picard that the manual entry tool can parse.
Please can someone let me know what I’m missing? Thanks.
