I'm in a nightmare trying to standardize my music tagging and apparently there's a subset of several thousand mp3 files that have both APE and ID3 tags. I want everything to have Id3 ONLY.
The problem with these doubly-tagged files is that the APE tags and the ID3 tags don't always overlap; the APE's have info that the Id3 doesn't have, and the ID3 has info that the APE doesn't. Is there a way to merge the data from both sets of tags and then re-save it all as the one ID3 tag that I want? This flipping back and forth between the read/ write/ remove options dialog, refreshing the view, copy-pasting by hand, etc is maddening with so many files to update... would be nice at the very least to have a split screen view to be able to view both sets of tags simultaneously and compare. I've been slowly chipping away at it over backup copies because I'm so paranoid of messing things up really badly... Many thanks for any help!
