I searched through the forum, but did not see this exact issue (maybe I missed it somewhere, if so, apologies), or I do not understand if the other answers relate to this issue.
Several MP3 files are showing either incorrect time (00:01) or nothing in the Length field. When I play them (Winamp), the time elapsed is displayed correctly as the song plays, but the Winamp info display shows the same (incorrect) length as the tag in MP3Tag.
In the files that show no time in the length field, I notice that the Frequency, Codec, VBR and Mode fields are also blank. In the files that show the incorrect time, the frequency field is populated (44100), and all other fields are populated as well. The file size is shown for all, and ranges from around 400 kB to around 30 MB.
I would like to run a command that will populate the Length field with the correct time. I tried the Action - Format Value "LENGTH" %_length% command, which returns a "Formatted Tags in 0 of n tags " message. I suspect I am missing something simple here, but my Newby mind hasn't grasped it yet.
Any help would be most appreciated.
