I had a problem with my computer & it froze on me while i was writing metadata to an album, I had to shut it down & turn off my external hard drive with my music on it.
where I had the album label meta data typed in the publisher fieldname, after turning my computer back on & looking at my albums, the publisher filed names do not show up & were replaced with organization
here is an example of what has happened,
before; in the field name; Label - Columbia Records has now been changed to Organization - Columbia Records. this is how I see them in windows xp when I hover my mouse over the albums in windows explorer.
the metadata is the same, but it has been changed to a new fieldname.
the odd thing is, when I load these albums into mp3 tag, the metadata is there, but it has been moved to the publisher fieldname.
I have over 300+ albums that this has done this too, it would be very tedious to go back & redo them all to the publisher fieldname.
is there any shorter way to fix this?
have the original flac song files been corrupted? is there anyway I can check for this?
I'm not sure that this will work as you intend. Because of Mp3tag's default vorbis comment tag mapping of ORGANIZATION to the internal PUBLISHER field name, both %organization% and %publisher% will reference a field named ORGANIZATION.
