Discog download...what is downloaded?

I have been using CATraxx for many years however wasn't "serious" about including information such as perfomers, composers, etc. I have some time on my hands and am using the "Album", "Update - Manual Query" command to download more information from Discogs on albums I've already entered into the library using the "Add - Download from CDDB" command. However track credits, album credits and other information I can see on the Discogs website is not updated in CATraxx.

Should this information be downloaded? If so, I would appreciate help on how to do so....what am I doing wrong? Thx in advance for any help.

Hello pacoinmass,

The Discogs download (internet.dll) does not download the credits. Just general album and track info.

There are some tricks I've learned to help enter the credits from Discogs and I'm thinking of doing another video going through those steps. Technically still "manual" but in an "automated" way...
