Okay, I'm assuming you're talking about the 'Scan to Library' option in the context menu. Now we're on the same freq.
To better explain the background of my question and requirements: my situation would allow Joe Average to insert and rip CD's on XBMC, without an internet connection having to be up always. As a matter of fact, this one HAS no regular connection; the scraping would be done at a later date when I come by and bring my tablet and bring up the hotspot. That's the flexibility I'm looking for. In essence a time shift between ripping and scraping.
Indeed, what you describe seems to be the problem, and just the issue that led me post here. I ripped one CD while being offline. I remember you get a popup then, saying something to the effect 'Error  Socket error', and I think it then proceeds to rip the CD, and store it with generic names and basically an album that's a number and tracks that are in the form of times.
So my understanding (i.e. hope) was that, on a next time when there's a connection up, I would be able to manually do a scrape for this previously ripped CD, whereby XBMC would fetch the info 'now'.
That's what I'm trying to achieve and at the moment trying to get a grip on, if that's possible at all. My experimentation tells me it doesn't look good, but I can hardly believe that XBMC would be shortcoming in this regard. It must be me.
For me, if that works, I can setup XBMC at a place where I am not always myself present, and where there is no regular internet connection. If this doesn't work, XBMC is out. That's what it boils down to, and if it would somehow be the latter, that would be a letdown, and --as I personally see it-- a high priority issue for XBMC. There must be more situations like mine, where the scraping could be done only at irregular times, with very intermittent internet connections.
