thanks but that cannot be the problem - I always type in English! I am not Spanish, like the other guy.
From what I've seen on the net, this is a common problem with no solution, so I'd like to avoid the comments field altogether.
Now I want to transfer all my text there to another field, maybe grouping or composer.
Can MP3 Tag do this? I've seen an old post that offered a solution (http://forums.ilounge.com/itunes-mac-pc/176331-copy-id3-tag-info-one-field-another-composer-comment-field.html)
but this might relate to an old version of MP3tag cos I can't see how it can work now.
please help - I need to change thousands of files!
