I recently purchased an used Naim Unitiserve and am in the process of ripping CDs. I have a question about ripping. If I rip a CD and later re-rip the same CD, does this overwrite the previous rip or default to the original? From the best I can tell it re-rips since it appears on the app as recent rip. Does anyone know for sure?
It re-rips it and saves it using the original name so the first rip is overwritten.
You can avoid this - if you wish - by renaming the first rip before re-ripping.
You can’t do this actually because you are not allowed to rename Naim rips as this will almost certainly break the indexing. And changing the metadata naming with n-serve has no effect on what happens if you re-rip the CD.
Hi David, I do not want to argue with you, but are you really sure? It’s quite some years back when I used to own an HDX which is similar to the UnitiServe … IIRC, you needed to use the DTC in order to make changes to album names, etc
I am afraid David is wrong - I think. You can edit the title using nserve and rerip. Or at least I have managed to do this.
You can edit the title, as you say. But the album identity remains the same - the number the US or HDX reads off the CD. That’s why a re-rip overwrites the first rip.
The reason I know this incidentally is from trying to rename a two CD set because for some reason both ripped as the same CD. But whatever you did with metadata made no difference. In the end I had to rip the second CD on a PC and add it as a download. That sorted it.
Can’t you edit the first rip then copy it to a usb stick then rip the second cd then put the rip that’s on the usb into the down load file ?
A lot of steps but should work if really needed
Yes of course you can. That’s similar to what I said above really.
