Song year location

Hi all,

I'm using a tool alongside mp3 tag to set the year on my music files. I have set the date to 1984 and confirmed it shows that date using mp3tag but windows explorer shows a date of 2013. I moved to file to another computer an it's still showing the date of 2013 in windows explorer.

The tags I'm using are

            audiofile.tag.original_release_date = 1984-01-01
            audiofile.tag.recording_date = 1984

Here is how it looks -

I can't find any reference to the date 2013 inside of mp3tag. If i remove all of the tags and then set the date it's displayed inside of windows correctly.

Where could this data be stored?


What does the extended tags dialogue Alt+T show?

Please see screenshot.

still no sign of that date

And now a view at the Options Ctrl+O Tags>Mpeg: do you write IDv1 tags? Or do you only write the V2.4 tags?
You could switch reading ID3V2 tags and see what is saved in the V1 tags.

Cool thanks. Removing V1 tags sorted the issue
