    How do I setup the CD Rip plugin ?

    Road Runner Users

    Requirements:
    -The CD Rip files: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/down...id=52&act=down
    -VB6 runtime (VB6SP6 Runtime) -- You do NOT need this if RR works already (since RR also requires it)
    -ASPI support from Adaptec's site
    -A skin that includes wait.skin and cdrip.skin screen, otherwise you can copy the files under the "skin" folder onto your CURRENT SKIN's folder.

    Setup:

    -Double click/Run the presetup.bat file on the CDRip folder
    -With the latest version of RR and Brushed skins: all you need to do is edit ExecTBL.INI and set the path to the CDRip application on the line that starts with: "CDRIP","PLUGIN;RRCDRip;<PATH>"
    -With other skins: You'll need to create/change a button in any skin file (wherever you want it) to execute a button code "CDRIP". This button code will be defined in ExecTBL.INI by adding this line (change <PATH> for the CDRip plugin's path):

    "CDRIP","PLUGIN;RRCDRip;<PATH>"

    In order to prevent the CDRip from being "hidden" while working on the background (In case you exit/close RR), you should also verify those two lines exist in ExecTBL.ini:

    "QUIT","SendMsg;RRCDRip;showplugin||bye"
    "BYE","QUIT"

    Other Front-Ends

    Requirements:
    -The CD Rip files: http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/down...id=52&act=down
    -VB6 runtime (VB6SP6 Runtime) -- Only needed for older windows versions (i.e. Win98).
    -ASPI support from Adaptec's site

    Setup:

    -Double click/Run the presetup.bat file on the CDRip folder
    -Edit general.ini on the skin folder (wherever you unzipped it onto) and set the size and position of the skin according to your needs. This should allow you to leave part of the screen reserved for your front-end's control buttons.

    You should read your front-end's documentation to check if/how it is possible to setup an external application.

    Multiple CD Drives

    If you have more than one CD drive you should perform those steps to select which drive to use:

    -Delete CDRIPCLS.INI off the folder of the CD Rip plugin
    -Run the CD Rip Plugin, Then simply close it
    -Open CDRIPCLS.INI and find the line on the format [<DRIVE NAME>] that identifies the drive you wish to use.
    -Count the number of SIMILAR lines until that one above starting from ONE.
    -Set that number in CDRIP.INI (cddrive=X) -- This typically should be 1,2 or 3 (for up to 3 CD drives), those steps are only to identify the order of the CD drives in your machine.

    Other Settings

    You can also setup extra settings by editing CDRIP.INI -- This should allow you to hide the mouse pointer when using the plugin as well as setup the folder/file format to use when saving songs. GenrePath, ArtistPath and AlbumPath allow you to automatically create a folder structure according to the CD information (starting at the musicpath location), while the songformat allows you to save your songs' filenames accordding to your preference.

    Example Settings

    In case of problems you should compare your files with those attached on CDRipFiles.zip ... This is a WORKING set, and all you should need to get it to run properly in RR is to change the path to CDRIP.EXE in ExecTBL.INI. Make sure the .skin files go in your SKIN's folder and ExecTBL.INI goes in your RR folder. If your settings are exactly the same (asides from the path of cdrip.exe) and it still doesn't work: You either have an old RR version or an old CDRIP plugin version.

    If you run into a problem that the ASPI install from Adaptec doesn't work, chances are that your system may have been tempered with and/or that the aspi support is partially/incorrectly installed. In such case, you can try to download this file: http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dl...shtml?wnaspi32 , then place it in windows\system32\ and thats it (no reboot necessary)... There are reports of this working on computers that Adaptecs' stuff refused to work with....

    It's been reported that on newer versions of Windows the ASPI support from adaptec may not work correctly. In such case you can try to download/install the version from this link:
