I am curious about the tags and naming conventions that BlueOS uses on WAV files...
When I rip a CD to wav, the resulting rip is usually stored in a Directory that is named after the artist. For excample, if I rip a Stevie Nicks CD, then that CD is stored in a folder named "Stevie Nicks."
Within that folder, there may be several Stevie Nicks Albums, these folders might be labeled as so:
\\VAULT2I-52D0\shared\Music\Stevie Nicks\Bella Donna
\\VAULT2I-52D0\shared\Music\Stevie Nicks\Time Space - Best Of Stevie Nicks
Then in each of those Folders, the songs will be named:
01 - Bella Donna.wav
02 - Song Name.wav
03 - Song Name.wav
04 - Etcetera.wav
My questions are as follows...
Q1. Are the folder and file names important for the Vault to know what songs and artist they are?
Q2. Are the songs tagged in some other place (rather than file and directory names) and are the tags what are important?
Q3. If one of these albums was filed as Unknown and I use a tagging program, will BlueSound find the information when I rebuild the index, or do I need to manually change the folder and file names for BlueSound to find them and treat them correctly.
I guess that I am trying to understand how BlueSound gets the information and what I need to do in order to fix the 39 albums I ripped the other day when I was - somehow - disconnected from the internet and did not save any of them with artist name, album name and song information.
Thank you for your help! Sincerely, Tom Breakfield 4
