Hi great device had an x10 for 2 years previously

For an unknown CD is there an option planned to eject the CD earlier than currently as every track is scanned before ejecting as unknown?

Thanks

Jh

Quick reject would be better for unknown albums: according to support there is a better option looming via update.

Actually i spoke to support & they explained it it uses finger printing to rip & or play to find the metadata if the other option fails or the metadata isn't found. Some system use this method too ...that is why the cds doesn't eject upon failing to find the metadata the 1st time (if of course the metadata doesn't exist yet). Having said that, you could just eject it to halt the process :)

So, are you saying you'd rather never rip a CD if it is unknown? Personally, I'd rather rip it and then manually enter the metadata via the web interface, rather than never be able to play a CD.

To implement an immediate rejection would be a terrible idea, unless it is just an option.

It's just a method it checks & rips fine, but if it's not found it uses another method only found on the pro x100 - finger printing but it rips it in the cache.
The user can eject it (if you don't want to wait for that...)!!!
So many 'Unknowns' are not a good idea.

The device creates a folder of the unknown cds.
If you open the folders you will see the folder with a number or code.

The X100 is surprisingly good at identifying most western albums and their album art. Where it often goes wrong is:
- Asian CDs, especially older ones
- Compilation CDs, including those that come with magazines
- Single track CDs
The "fingerprinting" is rather unsophisticated, it seems to me that it just looks at the length of the song, hence the problem identifying singles correctly as there could be more songs that happen to have the same track length.
I ended up purchasing dBpoweramp which gives me full control of the ripping process, including album art and track artists selection. I'm a bit OCD that way, things have to be perfect. After I'm finished with a perfect rip on the PC I simply copy the album back in the X100. Sometimes the X100 realises there are new albums and lists them but most of the time I have to force a rescan.
I am happy with this workflow because it gives me most control. I'm happy that I got the X100 because it is an "open" system that can accommodate albums ripped elsewhere.
