Alright, I've been trying to tag pictures on to my MP3s, and for a while I was able to do so without difficulties. Recently however, anytime I attempt to tag an image on a file, it seems to be writing it to the music layer itself.
I first noticed this after attempting to tag album art on ten songs from the same album. After tagging them, I saved the files to my music player. In an attempt to listen to these new songs however, my music player could not read them. I reconnected the device and pulled up the files in my audio editor, and discovered a loud, high-pitched tone at the very beginning. I removed the tone and tried to listen to it again. My music player played the song just fine, with the exception of missing album art. Noting the missing art, I retagged the images using Mp3tag. Attempting to play it now, I discovered that my music player could no longer play the files. Pulling them up in the music editor confirmed that the tone had indeed returned. Having a hunch as to the cause of the problem, I pulled up Mp3tag and removed the artwork. Now checking it in the editor, the tone was gone. I had hopes that this was only an isolated incident, so I proceeded to attempt to tag other music files with other images, and discovered the same problem.
Now believing this to be a software problem, I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Mp3tag, but to no success. Any attempt to solve this problem on my own have turned up unsuccessful. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
