I recently bought a new vehicle (2019 Ford F150) and, of course, no CD player anymore, so I've been ripping my CDs and fixing the tags on my MP3s so everything doesn't show up and "unknown". For the most part it seems to be working OK, but I've notice some peculiarites.
I have an Artist: "S.O.D. (Stormtroopers of Death)" and for good measure, have Album Artist set the same. It comes up fine in VLC. In the truck, it comes up as "Stormtroopers of Death" , no, "S.O.D." or brackets.
In an attempt to group sountracks, I've set both Artist and Album Artist to "Soundtrack" and the Album to the movie title. "Soundtrack" doesn't show up in the artist list. Going to change to "Sound Tracks" to see if that works better.
The movie Evil Dead 2 for some strange reason comes up as "Sneakers (Soundtrack)" . No idea where the word Sneakers came from. Can't find it anywhere in the tag with MP3TAG.
The tags all show up as ID3v2.3 (ID3v1 ID3v2.3). This is using a USB key. Thoughts? Is there something I'm doing wrong?
