    My screen looks the same as yours and it autoconnects? Maybe try Max?

    thanks, yeah I dont that of toast etc... etc... but is too large process... and I have a .ape merge songs... and .wv etc...

    large process
    so first I need extract with XLD to .wav, later go to toast, save it... mount it.... open itunes... GREAT LOAD GRACENOTE! and import! to apple lossless

    short
    XLD converts to apple lossless! fast... great!
    problem? dont load gracenote, so miss composer field of albums!!! that database of xld dont load that field.

    so thats the problem for me, for that I want connect XLD to gracenote :eek::confused:

    I dont like Max, XLD is better, I feel more simple and robust... and I think that max dont connect to gracenote too...

    I still don't understand why you wouldn't use iTunes to go straight to apple lossless.

    Idn, maybe I'm special but both connect for me and I didn't do anything in terms of those settings. I agree that XLD is much simpler...

    Umm, one thought that comes to mind is that Apple Lossless is not supported by some applications Virtual DJ rejects half of my Apple Lossless rips. I use XLD to convert downloads from the internet (Like Dispatch shows from Archive.org), but Gracenote would not work with that.

    To get the Gracenote data with XLD, you need to have iTunes open while you are using XLD. XLD will copy the data from iTunes.

    XLD is the only secure ripper currently available on the Mac.
