Access to ID3v1 tag information


I'm just starting to use MP3TAG and must say it offers a lot of functionality.

One thing I'm strugling with is the ID3v1 comment tag information I have in my files which is not copied in the ID3v2.3 tag.

So I was wondering if there is a way I can access the ID3v1 information of the comment field and copy it into the ID3v2.3 field?

I don't want to completely overwrite the version 2 filed with version 1 info ...

Thanks in advance.

This is possible via these steps:

  1. Enable reading of ID3v1 only at Options > Tags > Mpeg
  2. Export the comment fields via :mt_export: File > Export... using an export configuration like $filename(txt)$loop(%_path%)%comment%
    $loopend()</li><li>Enable writing of ID3v2 at <span style='color:green'>Options > Tags > Mpeg</span></li><li>Import the comments from the exported file via <img src="/uploads/default/original/1X/fb599927d56a3dea5261627b2c420f3f21fabb2d.png" width="16" height="16" alt=":mt_tff:" title=":mt_tff:"/> <span style='color:green'>Convert > Text file - Tag</span> with <!--fonto:Courier New--><span style="font-family:Courier New"><!--/fonto-->%comment%<!--fontc--></span><!--/fontc--> as format string</li></ol>

    Kind regards,
