Are id3v1/v2 tags synced?


#1

I had all my mp3s tagged in only id3v1 and now I have used mp3tag to tage them in id3v2. But how do I know that the id3v1 tags are the same as the id3v2 tags, except truncated to their 30 character limit?

It seems if your mp3s are tagged with id3v2 then mp3tag will only let you view the id3v2 tags and not the id3v1 tags seperately. Or maybe am missing something? I want to make sure everything is synced up correctly.

Mp3tag keeps the tags in sync if you enabled writing both ID3v1 and ID3v2 at Options > Tags > Mpeg.

It displays the tags in this order of priority: ID3v1 < ID3v2 < APEv2. If you only want to display the ID3v1 tags, you have to disable reading of ID3v2 and APEv2.

Kind regards,
