Not really a MP3TAG specific anomaly but I figured I'd post here asking if anyone else has encountered the following issue.
Note that I've used MP3TAG (latest version) to process all my MP3 Audio Tags which included removing ID3v1.x metadata from the MP3 file. I'm not using v2.4 as I still have legacy players that require pre-v2.4 tags to be present.
Onto the anomaly ...
Just wiped clean my iPad and installed a net new (fresh) install of iOS 14.2 using macOS Mojave running iTunes. The iPad only contains the default apps - nothing else at the moment.
If I drag an artist album from my network (read only) share over to the iPad (via iTunes), the files get copied to the iPad as expected. However, each track (song) is it's own Album. What I've also noticed is that the Artist category is missing.
If I delete the tracks (song) via iTunes and re-copy them, all the tracks (songs) appear as a single Album as expected and the Artist category is now visible in the iOS Music app.
It's seems like 'Artist' is not being processed the first time around. What I'm wondering is do I need to add additional metadata to the MP3?
Appreciate any insights anyone can offer.
