Under "Tools/Options/Tags/..." we can specify which tags to remove when pressing CTRL+R. At least for "Mpeg" and "Ape, Mpc ..." type files (which are these, exactly?).
So I decided to finally get rid of my ID3v1 tags, since these were only in my files for "old compatibility" reasons and found out some horrible truth:
We cannot specify what to do with OGG and WMA files! ... And MP3Tag will happily go along and erase whatever is in there (like the OGG Vorbis Comment or the WMA Tags)! This may also be the case with other file types, like .flac or the like, but I didn't test.
So watch out if you have a larger collection with more than only one file type!
I figured I could specify "Tools/Options/Tags/Mpeg/Remove..." only ID3v1 and APE and leave all ID3v2 tags alone. This worked beautifully on MP3 files and erased all info in all OGG and WMA files!
(To be honest: Of course I didn't wipe my collection, but I tried first using 3 or 4 copied files... Good to be a little paranoid, at times...)
Could we please have
- -either- (preferably) Tag options like for Mpeg/Ape, Mpc ... for ALL supported file types
- -or- at least something like "I won't erase anything I don't know"?
