Convert. Text file - tag


#1

I am using mp3 tag 2.37f and am trying to use the Convert. Text file - tag feature but I can't get it to work. Am I doing something wrong or is it a bug ?? please help !!

My text file looks like this:

01 - Neil Sedaka - You
02 - Neil Sedaka - Laughter In The Rain (Original)
03 - Neil Sedaka - Shake A Hand
05 - Neil Sedaka - The Show Goes On
06 - Neil Sedaka - Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen
07 - Neil Sedaka - Lovely Leba
08 - Neil Sedaka - Love Will Keep Us Together
09 - Neil Sedaka - Been There, Done That
10 - Neil Sedaka - Oh Carol
11 - Neil Sedaka - I Fell In Love With A Dream
12 - Neil Sedaka - You Mean Everything To Me
13 - Neil Sedaka - Laughter In The Rain
14 - Neil Sedaka - Run Samson Run
15 - Neil Sedaka - Next Door To An Angel
16 - Neil Sedaka - Sad Eyes
17 - Neil Sedaka - Should 'Ve Never Let You Go
18 - Neil Sedaka - Bad Blood
19 - Neil Sedaka - New York City Blues
20 - Neil Sedaka - That's When The Music Takes Me

My format string looks like this:
%number% - %artist% - %tittle%

The preview seems to work it looks like this:

"C:\Documents and Settings\Mike\Desktop\NEil\cd1\01.mp3" ->

Check your text file: there is a gap between tracks 03 and 05:

"C:\Documents and Settings\Mike\Desktop\NEil\cd1<b>03.mp3" ->
number: 03
artist: Neil Sedaka
tittle: Shake A Hand

"C:\Documents and Settings\Mike\Desktop\NEil\cd1<b>04.mp3" ->
number: 05
artist: Neil Sedaka
tittle: The Show Goes On

You have 20 files in your folder but only 19 rows in your text file: so all is ok up to track 03, tracks from 04 to 19 are tagged with wrong (skipped) values and mp3tag doesn't find in your file the 20th row to be applied to the 20th track (and signals this to you with the alert box).

Cheers and sorry for my poor english! :confused:

Be aware that you are going to create a tag field called 'TITTLE'.
