Hi All,

Through being A DJ for years, I have converted all my CDs to MP3 and am running digitaly.  What I now need is in 2 parts:

Part 1:

A script or utility that will go through the 15000 plus mp3s and put all the ID3V2 data on each MP3 in a CSV file.
Specific info required in CSV file are the: Artist, Title, Genre, Year, Album Title, Comment and duration fields.
Part 2:

I will then have a database of actual MP3s that I need to compare to the CD database to make sure none were missed, so a utility or script that will compare the 2 databases and return a list of differences.  (IE: if songA is in DatabaseA but not DatabaseB then it's on the list, but song2 being in both is not on the outputted list.)

I am VBScript literate, but anything else will completely lose me, so step by step instructions would be great!

Thanks in Advance

I should add, I usually use MS Excel or Access for the database file.

Use this to rip the tags:

Then import to Access.  In the same Access DB link or import your other database of songs to compare.  Then you would do a LEFT JOIN from the the table of your ripped tags to the complete song table.  The column of the songs you are missing will be blinks in one of the column.

Thanks Ram...

That is one awesome piece of software... wish I'd have known about it 3 months ago when I began ripping these disks!

Haven't done the access DB stuff yet.. but I'm sure it'll work out.

Thanks again
