sound-juicer scrambles cd track order on HD


I am using sound-juicer2.22 to rip DC's to hard drive. When ripping is complete, the track order on HD is not the same as on the order on CD. This makes SJ useless for ripping classical music. How do I prevent this?

Its probably your filesystem that is just listing them in alphabetical order. You could go into your preferences on sound juicer and tell it to include the track number as the first part of the name for the ripped file, that way they'll list in the same order.

Did that. Now track nos appear in file names but they are still scrambled.

I solve this with track numbers, numbers that don't have anything to do with the track titles. It's easy enough to set things up so each track gets a new file name with a track number assigned in such a way that alphabetic sorting is assured:

track_001_track title.mp3
track_002_another title.mp3
track_003_yet_another_title.mp3

... and so forth. Remember also that the only reason things look alphabetically sorted on the hard drive is because "ls" alphabetically sorts by default. Your player program should also sort the tracks (most do) when listing them.

If "sound juicer" isn't assigning track numbers, that speaks very poorly for the program. You can always write a simple script to read, convert and save the CD tracks in a way that automatically assigns track numbers as above. Like this:

Code:
path="/path/to/original/tracks"

n=0

find $path -type f | while read filepath
do
   name=$(basename $filepath)
   echo "New name: \"track_`printf %03d $n`_${name}.mp3\"."
   ((n++))
done
This is obviously not complete, but it should give you the basic idea. Just add commands to convert from the original CD music format to mp3s and save them using this naming convention.

I had to go through this same process because my music is also classical and needs to be played in a particular sequence.
