I've been using mp3tag for years and it has so far been working out great for me.
I just purchased a Windows Media Center PC and I'm struggeling with getting it to recognize my music correctly. I think the reason is that WMP11 uses a weird logic when building the database on how a song relates to an Album and an Artist.
I found this article on the subject
I have tagged my mp3s with
Artist, Album, Title, Year, Genre and sometimes comment
I let mp3tag generate the file names using this convention
Drive:\Music\%artist%\%year% %album%\%artist% '['%album%']' $num(%track%,2) - %title%.
so that all my tracks are first in directory by Artist\Year Album\Song
It seems that WMP11 uses the tag Album and Album-Artist to build the relationship. Is there a way that I can use mp3tag to copy the Artist tag information to the Artist-Album tag for all my files?
I haven't been able to figure out how see the Album-Artist tag in mp3tag, so far I've only been able to see it in WMP11 and most of the time I do not have the right information or it's blank.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated
