Artist, Album, Year, Track Number and Genre information. LinuxMCE by default

Incidentally, the ripping script doesn't use the quality settings for
MP3 or Ogg rips. I don't know if a Mantis report has been filed, but

In any case, the script should now work correctly for MP3, FLAC, and Ogg rips. Again, paste the
included ripDiskWrapper.sh in your /pluto/bin directory. Save your

don't know what I'm talking about, after copying type chmod a+x
ripDiskWrapper.sh Please let me know if you have any issues.
On another note, Lame wasn't installed by default, so ripping to MP3
