Ok, here goes. I've been trying to create a wholefile md5 for a warren zevon show that I had to rename to conform to etree standards. I think that it has to be wholefile since I want to archive it on LAMA. I cant get md5summer to create a file that works. Can someone give me a walkthrough or point me to a REALLY simple FAQ/tutorial-- its my first time trying this proggy and every forum and faq just confuses me even more. I really want to learn this stuff for the future. Its recognizing my md5 as a .shnf

Also, how do you switch directories in dos? I want to do a sbe check also with shntool. The only thing that I have ever done with respect to this program is create a shntool md5 using dawg's batch file. Any help? TIA

BTW, I'm on a windows xp machine

For md5 and verification, the best bet is downloading this program

I think the function that I want is shntool info (to check SBEs, right?), but yeah basically

Thanks for the trader's little helper link, I was able to create verifiable md5s. I'll try the sbe check next.

Very handy program!

To use shntool on WIN XP, use the cd command and drag the file you want to check into the dos window

This works like a charm...

A batch file for SBE check with shntool and it puts a txt file with the results in your show's folder. Just make a batch file with the following, drag and drop gthe show's folder onto it, wait a few seconds, then insdie the folder will be the txt file named as such: "<foldername>.shntool.txt" :

@<hidden> off
%~d1 & cd %*
for %%T in (shn flac wav ape) do if exist *.%%T shntool len -u mb *.%%T >> "%~n1.shntool.txt"

Thanks to uhclem and others for their help in me getting this batch file going.

another trick I found useful when you're in command line is to type cd <space> (meaning hit the key c, then d, then the space bar) then drag the folder you want to jump to onto the cmd window and hit enter. you can also use the up arrow key to get your previous command again. less typing!

there is also the right click menu option "CMD Prompt Here" if you click on the folder you want to work in... that is after getting THIS (http://download.microsoft.com/download/whistler/Install/2/WXP/EN-US/CmdHerePowertoySetup.exe) from M$ (more about it here) (http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/powertoys/xppowertoys.mspx) for XP
