When I first started to rip my classical CDs onto my Unitiserve, the metadata of correct album was identified and detailed most of the time. It was uncommon for the wrong album to be detailed and, when it was, I could generally sift through the alternatives available and find the correct one.
I am now finding that, when I rip my collection onto my Core, not only is the metadata wrong for at least a third of the CDs, but the options offered are ludicrously irrelevant and I can search and search and fail to find the correct album more often than not. I now rely on being able to read the printed data which comes with the CD.
The metadata providers must be aware of this and know thar their indexing is so arbitrary and illogical that users will give up searching.
I wondered whether it was because many of my CDs are old but I find that even newly released CDs cannot be found.
Also, on the rare occasions when I can find the correct metadata, is it possible to save it so that I don’t need to search again next time?
Am I missing something or is this an accepted failing of the metadata provision?
