On both a Windows 7 and a Windows 10 PCs all CD data is missing. The program worked fine for two weeks, then suddenly stopped working on both machines at the same time. It fails no matter what CD I try to rip.

usualy when power2go show "unknown" for audio cd ripping data, it means this audio cd is not a commercial audio cd and it has no more info to show from its music database.

Adding to this, Power2Go pulls the song information from the Internet (it is not on the disc), so you must be connected to retrieve it. If you are connected and it is no longer working for you for commercial CDs, check if Power2Go is being blocked from retrieving the info, i.e. blocked by a firewall, etc.

Thanks Dave. I have the program white listed with the firewall. Also it worked fine last week, but then stopped and iTunes has no trouble with the same comercial CDs.

While streaming is quickly becoming the most popular way to enjoy music, many of us prefer to own our favorite tunes, rather than lease them. Purchasing and ripping CDs, or buying digital tracks to download, remains the best way to build large digital music collections that you can listen to any time, anywhere, on almost any device, even if you don’t have an internet connection.

If you’re like most people, however, you probably own some obscure tracks that never quite made the music database services from which these apps pull their metadata. Maybe you have a collection of tracks you ripped many years ago, when these services weren’t available, or maybe they’re your own works. Either way, I’ll bet you have more than a few tracks that pop up in your music player as “Unknown Track” by “Unnamed Artist.”

If you’re as geeky about music as I am, you’ll find unlabeled or mislabeled tracks really aggravating. The answer is metadata management the ability to add, edit, change, and delete the metadata stored with audio files. You could try listening to every mislabeled track, figure out exactly what obscure remix it is, look up the official tracklisting, and then use a tag-editing app to update each file. But that’s going to take a lot of time. Allow me to show you a smarter approach.

What if there was an app that could “listen” to a selection tracks in your media library, compare the results to a worldwide music database, then automatically retrieve detailed track, album and artist information for you? What if it could also update tags and file names for you, and then relocate the files to an appropriate location in your music collection?

I agree with wat you said and I have solved the problem on my Windows 10 PC by re-installing Poer2Go 10 and thern re-installing Power2Go 13. My problem has always been about ripping brand new commercial CDs like the sound track from Bohemiam Rhapsody and others, all commercial CDs. The progran still will not work properly on Windows 7 no matter what i do.

As I know, Power2Go uses internet database for getting CD track and artist name, so it need someone upload the info onto that database.

Alternative way to get this info is to get via CD-Text, if your commercial CD have made the CD-Text for it. (perhaps it's only available for old CDs)
