Hi Sean,

With Easy CD-DA extractor, when you insert a CD, it is supposed to gather the artist name, album title and the song titles. I guess that some CD are not listed with the artist, album and track information. Usually this happens if I purchase a CD from a private artist. Another reason is that I can record a LP with GoldWave and burn a CD. Generally, the recording will be on the hard drive anyway. However, if my son record a LP for me on his computer, and burn me a CD, I then have to rip it on my computer.

He usually provide me the artist name, album title and song titles. I have a catalog software for all my CDs and when I manually enter the information there, I copy the CD information to MS word since the catalog program is MS Access and I cannot copy it directly to Easy CD-DA Extractor.

Once I have all the information in MS Word, I copy the artist name and paste it into Easy CD-DA, then that is followed by the album title and each song title. I have to go back and forth (alt-tab) to open up the artist name field (F2) paste it and hit enter and go back to Word to retrieve each title and go back to Easy CD--DA and open up the song title field (F3) and paste them.

As I mentioned, this is time consuming with so many key strokes, I was thinking of a shortcut key to shorten this process with a script.

Below is an example of the script to do this. I don't know if it can be further enhanced to do a better job.

Script PasteSongTitle ()


string cKSF3,

string cKSESC,

string cKSCV

let cKSF3 = "F3"

let cKsESC = "esc"

let cKSCV = "CTRL+V"

TypeKey (cKSF3)

TypeKey (cKSCV)

JAWSHome ()

Pause ()

EnterKey ()

TypeKey (cKSESC)


I hope that you get the idea what I am driving at. Let me know if you need anymore information.

Hi Sean,

I mainly use the ripping part of Easy CD-DA Extractor and occasionally
use the converter, but I use other program like Roxio to burn a CD.

So, to answer your question, I would like to see a more friendly use of
the ripping part with Jaws. Besides the check and unchecked part of each
song title, (that part is working okay since I labeled the
graphics) I would like to hear the song titles as they are being ripped
since I am having a problem trying to put a frame around the window when
it opens.

Another suggestions is to have a shortcut to insert artist and titles
when Easy CD-DA Extractor does not find any information about the CD.
I do this by having the titles on MS Word and as I copy each title, I
have to alt-tab to the extractor, hit F3, paste the title, hit enter to
accept it and alt-tab back to word to copy the next title. As you can
see, this can be time consuming especially if there are a lot of tracks
on the CD or there are more than one CD.

I have not use the converter lately to offer any suggestions at this

I hope that I have given you some ideas. Let me know if I can be of any
further help.
