    Check View -> Preferences -> Internet

    If the cd download does not read

    [url]http://freedb.freedb.org/~cddb/cddb.cgi[/url]

    you should correct it.

    At the same place, be sure Enter CD data manually is NOT checked (mine is set at Prompt and it works fine)

    Try another freedb server from the drop down menu. If this does not work too you may have a firewall conflict/setting.

    I have been using the latest version since uploaded and had no problems adding CDs from Freedb.

    If you have more than one CD drive please make sure that OrangeCD is directed to the correct drive.

    Good luck,

    Joe

    Check your firewall settings. It's possible that your firewall is blocking OrangeCD access to Internet. OrangeCD needs to connect to various servers (such as FreeDB, Amazon, etc.) via port 80 (http).

    The name of OrangeCD executable is c:\Program Files\OrangeCD\dadbapp.exe

    Default Still not working

    i am not very good with technical jargon but have checked my firewall and it says that orange cd is a programme allowed access.
    i am using a firewall supplied by my internet provider (virginmedia) and have the windows firewall turned off.i am obviously doing something wrong but as i say i am not technically minded so any other ideas would be appreciated.
    thanks for all the help so far

    If the firewall software displays an icon in the taskbar, usually right-clicking the icon in taskbar will display the options for disabling or exiting firewall. Try to disable it temporarily and check if it fixes OrangeCD problem.

    Andrei, kaj174 has already told that the windows firewall is turned off so there is no point to disable it again.

    You internet connection making problem I am damn sure, contact your internet service provider and tell about it.

    Of course, but I meant temporarily disabling provider firewall as well.
