After extracting a music CD with Juicer, How do I edit the resulting Directory structure names?

Asked by Robert on 2007-10-29

Several CD's put out by "Putumayo" all result in the top level directory name "Putumayo Presents". The lower level directory names appear to be OK. The first CD extracted "works" OK but when I do a second CD by PUTUMAYO, it won;t extract since the top directory name is the same?
Can I (1) extract to a temp directory; (2) use an editor to correct names; (30 then copy manually to my Music directory?

You should edit BEFORE extracting, it is better.
When you place CD, change the name of Artist/Album/Track names before clicking "start".

Please help....have no idea. I can get in and edit the name but it won't save when I close it

When I click "Help" icon (blue circle with white ?) on very top line in Desktop,
then click on "Play & Organize Music" I get a screen which mentions "cowbell", then tells how to activate it.
This doesn't happen on Dell Ubuntu 7.04? I assume Canonical has junked cowbell?

I confess I haven't tried to edit first. Will try soon. BTW, I don't click "start", only "extract"?

The problem is still unsolved. No answers were received that addressed
the basic question: "After extracting a music CD with JUICER, how do I
edit the CD TITLE, TRACK TITLES, ARTIST, etc?". The keywords here are
"after extracting". One answer suggested correcting the information
before extracting but did not give sufficient information to enable me
to even attempt this. Please keep Question #16533 open.

As an example of the problem, I recently purchased CD4640, a 10 CD set
containing all 32 of Beethoven's Piano Sonatas. Music wise, the set
appears to be of excellent quality. Title wise, one disc was totally
blank, while the remaining 9 disks were divided into 2 types: 4 with
full correct identification (e.g., "Beethoven The Piano Sonatas #1,6,23
(disc 1)"; and 5 with partial information (e.g., "Piano Sonatas_10
[Claude Frank #2,11,14 'Moonlight'](disc 9)"). This set was issued by
Music and Arts Programs of America, Inc., Berkeley, CA.

Rather than bemoan the lack of standardization (even within a single
institution), I intend to supply my own. What I need is the name and
number of the fields of this perplexing data base?; how are the fields
delimited? and what editor should be used to correct the information
they contain?

Thanks in advance for your help - Bob T.

Dear Robert

You can try install krename.

# apt-get install krename

Maybe this program helps you to solve the problem.
KRename is a powerful renamer for KDE. It allows you to rename hundreds or even more files in one go. You can find more info here:
