Help Wrapping and Unwrapping Audio Files.

Mp3 Album Maker, this program is a freeware wrapper/unwrapper.
Can't Media Monkey handle.RAR.ZIP and AlbumWrap Files? I am not too worried about AlbumWrap MP3 files, because even FooBar can only play the AlbumWrap.MP3 file as one big track until you unwrap it using AlbumWrap Extractor or AlbaExtractor. But.RAR and.ZIP files are another story.
My collections is all albums and many of my albums are zipped up in either a.rar or.zip file. FooBar will handle either one and play the individual tracks inside the.zip or.rar file. You can right click the.rar or.zip and select Open with Foobar which will play the individual tracks WITHOUT unzipping it to anything but maybe temporary files you never see. You can even drag a.zip or.rar into FooBar to add it to the que. Keeping your individual track files makes your disk easier to organize and probably helps to speed up your computer since the operating system has that fewer number of files to deal with until you need to access the music of that particular album. In fact Windows itself will SEE what is in a.zip file without using WinZip. Just do a search on file name (F3) and it will find the track or artist you are looking for if the track is named properly inside the.zip file.
MediaMonkey does not see these.zip or.rar files at all. It won't even show you a.zip or.rar file in MY COMPUTER NODE view.
I dread thw work of unzipping all my.rar or.zip files so MediaMonkey will recognize them. I would pay extra for this feature. If Media Monkey could open and play all the tracks in a.rar or.zip file, like FooBar can that would be nice. In FooBar you just drag the.rar into FooBar or right click } Open in Foobar and it handles the whole thing automatically. It does not leave the unzipped files anywhere except for temporary storage so you don't have to zip them back up again.
MORE IMPORTANT to me than playing that music inside Media Monkey is the ability to at least SEE the.rar and.zip files in the Media Monkey Library interface. Otherwise I won't even know they exist, unless I use Windows Explorer. To keep it simple Media Monkey could use.zip or.rar FILE NAME CONVENTIONS so that it doesn't have to peak inside the.zip or.rar file to read TAGS.
All my music is organized in folders named Artist and within those folders the folders are named Artist - Album if they contain individual track files. Bs en 1090 2 pdf download windows 7. If the music is in a.zip or.rar file the file name is Artist - Album.rar and there is no need for the subfolder Artist - Album inside the Artist folder.
