I’m in the process of tagging my whole Hip-Hop collection. I’m getting frustrated with changing the track format. When I’m copying a whole discography across, the track formats are all different. I don’t suppose there is anyway to change the format of everything without haven’t to re-number the tracks? I hope this makes sense.
AFAIK this is not possible.
You need to select all the tracks of one album first, then click on the menu Convert -> Autonumbering Wizard.
In the wizard you can choose the format you want to see for the selected track numbers, like the leading zeroes for tracknumbers. This settings
Often this happens with different file types.
Album 1 - XX/XX is usually found in mp3 files, using the id3 spec
Album 2 - X is typically m4a format, where there is a separate track total tag, and no leading zeros
Album 3 - XX is typically FLAC and other formats, where there is a separate track total tag, and allows leading zeros
Fortunately mp3tag is very flexible and will show us all of these formats. And when writing them will put correct details in the appropriate tags.
