    Unhappy what happened to discogs.com?

    Several days ago OrangeCD Suite stopped downloading info from Discogs.com - all I had was an "Unknown error". Yesterday I installed the newest version of OrangeCD (6.4.8.16916 - before it was 6.3.smth), and it searched Discogs.com (and found what I was looking for) but I coudn't download anything - it just showed "downloading information" message and nothing more... Is anything wrong with Discogs.com or OrageCD or my computer maybe?

    It is expected that old version doesn't work with Discogs. New version should work fine.

    Is there a session log? When something's wrong, usually you should see an error message with separate tab for session log. Feel free to forward me the log at [email]orangecd@firetongue.com[/email] and I'll take a look.

    I'd better post it here for others to seee - it could be useful for somebody else.

    So - I try to download info about album "Relict" by a band called "Mind Eclipse" from Discogs.com. Dearch goes OK, the release is found at once. Then I try to download the info - I wait for a couple of minutes and get timeout error and a log:

    Connecting to api.discogs.com

    Nothing else.

    Then I try it again and after some time I get timeout error and the log goes like this:

    Another thing that could be of interest - up to the January 15th everything worked fine with an old version of OrangeCD. Now it doesn't with neither old nor the old version...

    According to the log, there was a connection error while fetching artwork image. I don't have any trouble getting that image.

    Are you using any antivirus or any software that can block network access? I'd try disabling it for a moment and see if it fixes the problem.

    Sorry, but that doesn't work.

    I tired to turn my NOD32 off but it didn't help. In case something changes - here's the log with antivirus turned off:

    Full reinstall didn't help either

    BTW, import from FreeDB and Amazon.com works fine - with or without images.

    Hi,

    I tried Discogs a few minutes ago. Downloaded with no problems.

    You have to first login to Discogs from the login page and then authorise OrangeCd to get "the add albums from discogs" pop up.

    Default Same issue with Discogs

    I have version 6.4.6 and have been able to down load with Discogs. Based on what I am reading, do I need to upgrade to a new version of Orange? Is there any way to get my version to work again with Discogs?

    Please help.
