Hi, I'm new to the forums (signed up about a minute ago)
I've been searching for so long and I can't seem to find a topic that is somewhat similar to mine. So here goes:
I'm not really familiar with the program. I've used it for just two days. And the way I used it is this:
I launch it, I click on "change directory" choose the music folder I want to edit, I wait for it to load and then I edit everything manually.
I usually just delete the comments and track number sections because I prefer them empty.
So say I load "music folder A" with 20 songs (song1 - song20), Once they're all listed on the main window, I then proceed to manually remove all the comments and track numbers. After that, I press ctrl+A to select all the files and then click on the save button.
I then open up windows explorer to check if my changes were saved. The comments section doesn't really show but the track number does, so I usually base it there.
The problem is, once I save it, the duration disappears on some songs.
That being said, I'd like to clarify a few things:
- They all had durations prior to saving my "tags"
- I did NOT touch the duration column, I don't even go near it.
- I saw somewhere here that if files don't play, I should check the validity of the file. Someone suggested mp3val. I've downloaded it and evaluated all my files prior to "tagging" All were scanned and turned out OK.
- This does not happen to all the files. Just to one or two every folder. Say for "music folder A" with song1 - song20, after removing the comments and track numbers and saving, one song will somehow end up without a duration, rendering it unplayable.
Am I doing something wrong?
If so, please help me.. So far 6 mp3 files have already lost their durations, cannot be played and I must download again.
Lastly, I apologize if this was posted before. I'm very unfamiliar with the forums and I only searched the site through Google. I'm sorry if this has been discussed.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
