First time poster, but have been using MP3tag for years, great little program for what small tasks I need to use it for.
OK, here's the issue I'm facing. I just got a new HD player, the Astell & Kern KANN Alpha. I just transferred a number of "Mixes" to the players internal memory. These are compilations of various songs from various sources, all of which I have edited the tags to conform with that particular mix, essentially making them their own album and putting each mix in their own folder. For instance (and is one of the files in question) I have an "'80's Mix" where I changed the album name for all files id tags to the name of the '80's mix. (Yes, I also have all of them checked with a "compilation" field as well since it's all different artists.) But for some strange reason for this mix (and another one) the KANN Alpha player is reading 1 of the files album field as the original album name I got the song from instead of the album name I changed it to in the id tag!? This is causing the player to read it as a separate album (just one song) and not including it with all the others in that mix/album. Yet, when I look at the id tag using MP3tag or dbpoweramp's tag editor, it shows as the '80's Mix name and not the original.
I have never run into this particular problem before and it has me scratching my head a bit. I assume it has something to do with the way the KANN Alpha reads the file tags? Is it reading some remnant of the original/unedited tag or another tag imbedded in the file? (Can there be more than 1 tag?) I have these same mixes from the same source in itunes/ipod, on my android phone using Poweramp app to read/play and even on the older model KANN and all of them read these files tags correctly, as 1 album, as I have edited them. I tried deleting and reinputting the tag info in the files tag using MP3tag, no good. I even have a couple other songs from the same original album I got this song I'm having this problem with, yet their id tags are being read correctly!
So if anyone has any suggestions on how/what to look for to fix the tags, I sure would appreciate it!
