I'm trying to update a bunch of my karaoke files (MP3 + G). When I open them in MP3TAG, the track number is not displaying in either the left panel or in the Track column. Yet, the track number shows up in Winamp and in Windows Explorer correctly.
Looking at one of the MP3's file properties in Winamp, track number is present in Basic Info and ID3v1 format but it is NOT showing in the ID3v2 panel (both panels are checked to be included in the file).
These files were not ripped by me but I need to change the file names to include the track number. Something is goofy here. Shouldn't MP3TAG read the track number regardless of whether it is in v1 or v2 format (or both)?
How do I get the track number to show up so I can manipulate it?
UPDATE: OK, I note that changing MP3TAG's Options / Tags / Read and UNCHECK ID3v2 will show the track number correctly. HOWEVER, should I really have to do this for these specific files? Can't MP3TAG read the ID3v1 tag if the ID3v2 tag is blank? Or is it just seeing that there's "stuff" in some of the ID3v2 tags so it only reads whatever's there and ignores ID3v1 completely?
Is there a way to automate this? Like display BOTH ID3v1 & v2 track numbers in the column view?
