Ripper X - how to get track list
« on: July 19, 2008, 06:15:18 am »

Hi there, trying to set up Ripper X to download a track list - so that when I rip CDs I will have a list of tracks marked by name.  When I try to connect to the CDDB I get the following error message:

Error Code 20
Could not connect to CDDB server

Any ideas/alternatives?

Maybe check if the address is right in the preferences, or maybe a firewall thing?

How to access

It's really simple:
Configure your CDDB1- or freedb-aware software to point to (Random freedb server) as your CDDB/freedb-server.

All official freedb servers are running cddbp at port 8880 and http at port 80. The path for http-access is /~cddb/cddb.cgi.
