sorry for the confusion, I must explain:
I have mp3 tag installed on my mac through crossover...
where I was inquiring if it was normal that I cannot drag a file or folder from finder. It may be a limitation from crossover
I can connect and retrieve stuff from discogs from the mac set up
I also have mp3tag installed on my pc, where I get the discogs error connection
you pointed this link for me to check I guess:
I can't connect to the freedb server. What can I do?
First of all, make sure that your firewall doesn't block access to the internet for Mp3tag. If you are sure, that HTTP access is allowed for Mp3tag, you can switch to another freedb mirror at Options > freedb > Server. If you have still problems with accessing freedb, increase the timeout value at Options > freedb > Server to 10 and try again. "
I just checked and the freedb server works fine on the pc where I have the discogs connection error
as metionned the discogs goes through the first step opening a small window giving me choices... I pick one, then wait and wait...then the error connection message appear
now, about the increasing the time out value..will that help... I tried looking for this setting but I don't find it..and since the freedb server works fine, that perhaps won't change anything, or will it affect also discogs search?
