No Convert, Just Sort?

  • Nobody/Anonymous

    I am mainly using BonkEnc as a sorter for mp3's I have laying around on my desktop(Not to mention CD Ripping). I am extremely happy with this program and I really appreciate the effort that goes into it. My question:

    Is there any encoder/encoder option to do no converting/encoding, just sort files into folders based on Artist Name etc?

    Would there be any way for me to configure a current encoder to do this, or will i need to download a new coder config of some sort? Or, would you need todo something on the development end?
    There are no good tools(at least easy ones) for file sorting without converting that I have found.Currently I have to simply set LAME to insane quality and que my music up!

    Thanks in advance,

      Forgot on the post above,
      Is there a way of sorting such that it eliminates dublicity and, at least, re-rips the better file and deletes the others. I have come across different files ripped with different programs that were set up differently. As I am trying to clean out my files, I have come across instances where I have apparently ripped an album more than once at different fidelity and they were in different hard drives.
      Finally, is there a memory limit to the number of files or total MB that Bonkenc can handle. On avg, it seems to crash at between 1000 and 1300 files. All files being re-ripped are mp3

      Hi, sorting files without encoding is not possible with BonkEnc, yet. However, it sounds like a really good idea, so I will try to add it. I put this feature on my to do list.

      Thanks a ton for the response! I really appreciate it. If anyone else knows if there is any app that can satisfy this need in the meantime, let me know.

      Thanks again,

      Wow, I was thinking the same thing. I am "re-coding" right now and also ran into this problem (
