I just did a complete uninstall/reinstall to version 5.531 to see if a persistent problem with MusicID would go away - it didn't. The error is that whenever I try to access Gracenote, I see:
Accessing Gracenote CDDB(R)...
connecting... [seconds pass, overwrite]
No matches found
Reason: Unknown error
Not terribly illuminating. I'm using a Thinkpad T42P with a Matsushita UJDA755YDVD/CDRW drive, running XP Pro SP2. AnyDVD is installed, but enabling/disabling it makes no difference. I'm currently at home, with only a D-Link DIR-655 between me and my ADSL. I've tried with the laptop both inside and outside the D-Link's firewall, to no avail. McAffee firewall software is also running on the laptop itself, which has never interfered with any of my apps before.
(This problem also happens at work, when I fill in my standard HTTP proxy info into Prefs.)
My in_cdda.dll says "Nullsoft CD Plug-in (MusicID 2.5) v3.6". Reading farther up in the tutorial, I see there's supposed to be an in_cdda.cdb file, which I can't seem to find anywhere - then again, maybe it simply hasn't been created? This particular error's been going on for a long time now, and I'm wondering what I could possibly be doing wrong...
Can anyone help?
