I would like to be able to set the artist and album sort tags to work with iTunes. But, I am encountering difficulty. I have set mp3tag to write id3 v2.4 tags (which it is my understanding I must as iTunes will not otherwise see the tags) and set the ALBUMSORTORDER and PERFORMERSORTORDER tags (as described in the table on id3 tag mappings in the mp3tag documentation). What I've found is that in some cases it appears that iTunes can't read the tags at all as they come up blank in iTunes. I have read that iTunes has some id3 v2.4 compatibility problems, so I am presuming this is an example of this. Is there another way to get the sorting information into the tags such that I can avoid these problems? For example, can I somehow write out id3 v2.3 tags?
Thank you very much for your help!
