ID3v1 and ID3v2 tagdata


Is it possible to edit ID3v1 data and ID3v2 data individually?
I'm asking because I need unicode suppport for my ID3v2 data (used in my iPod) but not for my ID3v1 data (Used in my Carradio's mp3 player - does not support unicode).

Hello Lars!

Yes, you can disable ID3v1/ID3v2 writing at Options > Tags > Mpeg.

Btw, ID3v1 Tags are always stored in the system codepage, because they don't support Unicode.

Thank you Florian for your answer!

As far as I understand the ID3v2 tagdata are shown if both ID3v1 and ID3v2 does exist in the mp3 file?

I use CDex for ripping. Do you have other recommendations for CD-ripping?

I wonder if you know of a forum that more generally discuss mp3 items?

Lars for example.

Yes, but it's not very handy when I need to change it often...

Could you check my suggestion here please - /t/2385/1

Also support from other users is welcome. :slight_smile:


Yes, I could use this "easy change" between ID3v1 and ID3v2 too. One might do it by adding a tab-like component on the left side showing the tag-data: 3 tabs showing 1) ID3v1 2) ID3v2 and 3) ID3v1+2. When choosing these you see and at the same time choose which mode you want. :rolleyes:

Sorry, but different tabs for different tag versions are definitely not planned.

Just tabs are not planned or whole idea of "switching tags"?

Why? It's very important for me, it's just about moving existing features (ID3v1/2.. read/write) to some toolbar buttons. I think it would be easy to implement. Now it's all very annoying...
