    fre:ac does not look up any database information when converting files. Only when ripping audio CDs.

    To just convert the files while keeping the original file names, try a filename pattern like this:


    Or maybe (depending on your current folder structure) something like:


    You can read about the <directory> and <filename> placeholders and what you can do with them here.

    Thanks Robert. I've sorted that and some of the issues with missing files come down to things like dulicate track numbers.

    Yes, I thought so. The <directory> and <filename> placeholders will allow you to convert your files anyway, keeping the original filenames. But of course it's better to add the missing track numbers
