Hi, I have all my music tagged using ID3V1, is there a quick way to convert all files to have ID3V2 so I can add cover art? Thanks

  • Select all files having ID3v1
  • Ctrl + X to cut the tag to the clipboard OR Right click to see the local menu - Tag Cut
  • Ctrl + V to paste the tag from the clipboard OR Right click to see the local menu again - Tag Paste
Suggestion: always test your actions on a small amount of files (file copies) to see the result if you are not sure what to do.
