I have a date set in the COMMENT field for all of my FLAC files - this was sourced from the file modified date, and will be used for playlist creation.
The problem I have is that some of the albums don't have consistent dates throughout the tracks. For instance:
Track 1: 15/08/2009
Track 2: 14/07/2009
Track 3: 15/08/2009
Track 4: 15/08/2009
Is there a way I can copy whatever comment is set in track 1 to the other tracks on the album? Also, I don't want to have to go through and check my 900+ albums individually for this problem, so is there a way to automate this over different albums?
Hmm, when you are in the Mp3tag list view window, then you can manually copy and paste from cell to cell. This works as fast as you can. The advantage of this method is that you easily can see where you have to repair a date.
Another possible way would be writing an export script, which creates a text file with each line containing comment and path data for later re-import the comments. By clever usage of the $loop() function it should be possible to fetch an albums's first comment's value and put it out to the following tracks.
