i ripped a classical box-set. archiv produktions 50 cd. in every folder ther is a front and back cover from the cd.
it´s named cd01, cd02 cd03 and so on. all in one parent-folder with another artwork-folder - all in one place.
what is nice roon did not clump it together- cause in this case it dosn´t make sense cause its a reissue of single-cd´s.
so everything looks great by acident but when i look into -edit-metadata to change the cover, it´s not possible cause roon take as “original” the cover from the artwork-folder?
hmm i don´t understand. normally i was expecting one big box-set with 50 cd´s inside and i have to manually ungroup- any idea
ok i was too fast in beeing happy…
i´ll try to get a bit deeper into my cover problem. maybe you can show me a solution. as describe i would like to unbox the archive-production 55cd box. in every cd-flac-rip there is adescibe a back.jpg and a cover.jpg
even if they are not clumped together i see 107 jpegs in every album available. in some cases this is nice. i like to avoid this in this case cause the boxset is just 55 diffrent cd´s so i would like to treat them as individuals but with the metadata from the boxset (maybe this is the difficult point)…
i tried diffrent things -
i put all folders cd1 cd2 cd3 and so on on top of the parent-folder with my other cd´s…now i lost the artwork from the boxset but all have now the cover from the first cd and bihind still 100+jpegs from the others…no success
i tried to rename them in a more complex manner “archive prod - 1947- 2013 cd01” “archive prod - 1947- 2013 cd02” “archive prod - 1947- 2013 cd03” and so on…stays the same
oh and i made shure to mark artwork from file…
i tried putting them back in one parent-folder and bring only 5 from the box above the boxsetfolder- now i get 50 cd´s with 100 jpegs and all have the same front and 5 with 10 jpegs and the same front from the first of the row and they are not clumped together…
i don´t understand how to beat the system plz help
and maybe you reopen the the post…
First of all, make sure you have a backup of the relevant music files.
Do you still have separate albums in Roon for each disc, or have they now merged into one album ?
Do you still have the following directory structure:
I see that Roon has a different cover available. Is that different for each album ? Do you want to use that Roon cover ?
If so, then:
Select All the relevant albums (right click on one, then top left menu)
Edit/Metadata Preference/Artwork/Prefer Roon
If not, and you still have separate Roon albums, then I would move all jpegs out of the parent and CD directories (into a storage place outside Roon’s watched folder) retaining only a single JPEG in each CD directory named cover.jpg. Then Select All and Prefer File. You might then add back other pictures if you want to access them in the Gallery.
-archive prod - 1947- 2013 cd01/1.flac, 2.flac, 3.flac… cover.jpg
-archive prod - 1947- 2013 cd02/1.flac, 2.flac, 3.flac… cover.jpg
-archive prod - 1947- 2013 cd03/1.flac, 2.flac, 3.flac… cover.jpg
now only one cover.jpg for each folder
and yes i like to use my cover.jpg files and not roon…
guess what´s happen …nothing all stays the same - all albums have the same cover from the first album…
this is a bug and not a feature sorry…
and yes albums are still solo in roon - that´s also kind a weird
yes its diffrent - if it would look like this everything would be ok…
i send you the informaion as pm…
and i don´t know why roon think this is a set. just to try somthing. i deleted the “main-cover” …the one wich is shown on all cd´s - made a rescan…all stays the same. this is not what i´m used too?..looking forward.
