That’s a lot of work. What does adding album and track IDs achieve? I wouldn’t bother unless you are missing something you want.I was told over on the Kodi Forum that the flacs need to be tagged with all three MBID's. So my issue appears to be with dBpoweramp as I think it only supports one MBID...I'll look at Picard, FB2K, and/or MP3 Tagger...
The old Artist\Album folder structure is still supported. From what I read they added extra support for v18 to resolve issues with duplicate artist names and their artwork, metadata etc
I have no idea. My thinking was I'd rather have them than not have them if the ripping program will do the work for me. Otherwise that will add an extra step and may not be worth the time as you said...Thanks, PKThat’s a lot of work. What does adding album and track IDs achieve?

OK, yes, I think I now remember reading that in one of your tutorials...Thanks again, PKThe old Artist\Album folder structure is still supported. From what I read they added extra support for v18 to resolve issues with duplicate artist names and their artwork, metadata etc
I’m not going to change what I’m doing unless I get something for the work.
BTW: The MusicBrainz AlbumID can be used to show albums if the albums are different releases (e.g DSOTM (Q8) vs DSOTM (BDA) etc although I just tag the album title as those two example titles and forget the AlbumID
Um, well unfortunately my Media Player Project got derailed some time ago. I was hoping my next post would be something to the effect of: "this is the greatest thing since sliced bread!" I just need a block of time to get things going again...I do appreciate all the time and effort you've put into this....Maybe I just need a kick in the ass to get moving again Thanks Garry!I read recently the MusicBrainz TrackID isn't used in Kodi
You input a source for music files in Kodi, correct? Like d:/music or something to that effect? Be sure not to confuse the video library with the music librarySo, after spending many hours configuring a folder structure and tagging all my music files, I copied everything to a portable hard drive and connected it to my Vero 4K+ media player that runs Kodi 18.5. When I go to Music, it tells me my library is empty, so I "Enter files section." There, I see my hard drive, "Auto-mounted drives," and "Add music." I've tried selecting my hard drive and the folder with all my music files and clicking on Update library, but nothing seems to happen. I've tried opening that folder, which reveals all my artist folders, clicking on Update Library, and nothing happens, I've tried selecting Auto-mounted drives and Add music, but it doesn't seem to navigate to my hard drive. The bottom line is that I can play music using the folder structures, but I can't get the library to update. I've looked on the Kodi wiki and forums, but everybody's setup is so different, I can't find out what I'm doing wrong. Is there something painfully obvious I'm missing?
try right clicking on an existing source and look for a delete option to delete a source you want to remove. What operating system does your device use?The problem is that when I select Browse, the USB drive does not appear. I tried entering a path (My Passport/Surround Music), but all it did was create what looks like another Auto-mounted drive called Surround Music, which I can't figure out how to remove. I guess I'll have to contact the Vero 4K+ support.
