Change of genre


#1

Working with ver 2.90a I am unable to change the genre of songs. The genre returns to the original value when I try to save the change.

could this be the cause?


#3

Thank you for responding. My tags don't disappear they simply cannot be changed regardless whether I do this for one single file or for a block of files. E.g. a song is tagged as Rock 'n' Roll and I want it to be Pop, I click on the genre window arrow, select Pop in the dropdown and the window no shows Pop. When I then save the change with Ctrl+s the tag Rock 'n' Roll reappears in the window and nothing has changed.

Greetings,
Peter

Please check which tag versions you read and write in
Tools>Options>Tags>Mpeg.
It could be that you read APE tags but you do not write them.
(This was also part of the linked thread)

I use a list of custom tags (since about one year) and this has not been changed since. This worked fine until the last time I used MP3tag (some 2 month ago). After updating to ver 2,90a recently I use MP3tag for the first time today. MP3tag recognizes my custom genre table only it doesn't apply it.


#6

Could you try to delete the genre field and then add it again?
I still think that this has something to do with the update of the tag-panel features.


#7

Can you please check whether you have any duplicate tag fields listed at "Options > Tag Panel"? If so, please remove the duplicates and try again.

I wanted to attach a screenshot of my settings but this didn't work so I give it like this
mpeg
LESEN: ID3v1, ID3v2 not ape
SCHREIBEN : ID3v1, ID3v2 not ape
below that only radiobutton ID3v2.3 UTF-16 is selected

ENTFERNEN all three (ID3v1, ID3v2, ape) are selected.

As you see I Use the German version and LESEN means, READ, Schreiben means WRITE and ENTFERNEN means REMOVE .

In fact I had 8 duplicate entries in Tag-panel &Genre amongst them.
Now let me try with the duplicates eliminated.
