[WS] Discogs (pone mod)

OK, thanks very much! I'm now at step 7 but can't see the option to create scripts. Apologies again; I'm very new/stupid to these things. Thanks!

You're welcome!

It's in the menu bar: Actions > Discogs Pone > Create Scripts (after editing the settings mp3 file)

At the same place where the "Update Settings Mp3 File" action of step 5 is.
If it is not there, you have probably moved the files in the wrong folder at step 2:

  • the .mta files must go into the ...\Mp3tag\data\actions folder
  • the .mte files must go into the ...\Mp3tag\export folder

I think I have it set up now, Pone. There were some files in the wrong place. Thanks very much!


Pone - Your scripts are proving invaluable addition to mp3tag for correcting my recently re-ripped CD collection. :music:

I have a suggestion for enhancement when dealing with discogs lookup;

Most, if not all of my compilation cds are 2 CD's or more. All the tracks are within the same folder.
eg \Disco Kandi. In the folder there are two track 1's, two track 2's etc etc.

Using the Pone discogs search I find the Disco Kandi release, which ultimately gives my the discogs track display on the left and my ripped tracks on the right. However, my tracks on the right are not ordered by cd disk number.

Would it be possible to request an enhancement to pone disocgs script so that list on the right is ordered in first instance by disk number, then by track number? It would save a lot of time!

The file list on the right is ordered exactly like the file list in the Mp3tag main window. This can't be changed by the script. But you can change it easily in the Mp3tag main window before using the script. To sort by discnumber, you may have to add that collumn if you haven't yet:

from the FAQs:
You can also add additional file list columns for extended tag fields via View > Customize Columns... and edit the tag fields directly in the file list.

just forgot to mention my thanks for your replies above. they are helpful. so.. thanks! :laughing:

The newest changes on Discogs broke the script unfortunately.

Update 3.7:

Discogs changed the way they present Label & Catalog#. This broke the script. Fixed now.

At some discogs releases there where additional spaces in the TITLE field between the track name and the name of the remix in parenthesis. This is fixed now.

The search scripts presented the data in the wrong columns at the index window when the year is missing at a release. This is fixed now.

Wow Pone you are fast !! I think 99% of the users haven't noticed yet that Discogs made changes, and it's already fixed !


Hi, halfway through tagging 40Gb of music :music: but the Discogs script has changed and I can't tag from the ID release any longer.

Is there an update available or a particular thread to watch?

Thanks in advance :smiley:

There is a update from today and this is the right thread to watch.
Have you downloaded the 3.7 update?

At first: Thanks for the mod. It's a great help all the time.
And thanks for fixing the changes so fast.

But with the last update, no covers are shown with a search in discogs. :rolleyes:

I exerienced this too. I'm not 100% sure, but I think it's not the scripts fault.
It's not a constant behaviour. Out of ten tries, it works rougly two times. When I open the discogs page in a browser and click on the "more images" link, I noticed that also there some of the images are missing sometimes. When I refresh the pages, they suddenly appear.

So I think most probably discogs has a little server problem which came with the lastest changings. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.

Works perfectly now. Seems as this was a temporary problem at discogs.com

I did, but found it complicated and messy - think I've sorted it, but there's no artwork and some of the fields were tagged very weird with silly little comments. Like you say, if it's a server problem at 'Cogs and IF it's been ironed out, great!

Thanks for all your hard work :slight_smile:

@pone, I've done a guide on the forum I use please feel free to join (we're a friendly bunch) and comment on it as we're all noobs using mp3tag.
Most members have got an incredibly large amount of music to tag (and we like it done properly :wink: )!!!

So any pointers would be gratefully accepted :slight_smile:

Yes, my script is a bit complicated to install if you use it for the first time. Instruction is given in the strating post of this thread and in various questions and answers in it. If you still have questions about it, feel free to ask.
The artwork problem is sloved. Seem to have been a server problem at discogs.com yesterday.

But there should be no fields "tagged very weird with silly little comments". What do you mean by that? Did you solve it?

Nice Forum. I think I will register since I'm also very interested in the oldschool of electronic music. But for question about the script, please post a link there to this thread or/and the one for dano's script. All the questions there have been discussed here in the forum serveral times. It's a bit ineffective to explain things at different places if all could come together in one place. So I would prefer to answere questions here.

I see your forum is a lot about DJ Sets. Maybe another web script I have done is very interessting for you. It is form MixesDB.com and gets basic tags like ARTIST, ALBUMARTIST, ALBUM, TITLE, YEAR, GENRE and also Coverartwork and a Tracklist if available at MixesDB.com.
The UK sound is a bit underrepresented at MixesDB.com, but it's growing.

Yeah, I'll link a couple of threads to here but you are more than welcome to join our community too and as moderator I'll guarantee a warm welcome :smiley:

In the comments box stuff like, "U know quality" and "Excellence 2009!!!"

Doesn't matter now - if it's fixed many thanks :slight_smile:
