  • Genre metadata for some MP3s not importing correctly

    I have some MP3s that are being found as genre "ClassicRock" when they should be "Classic Rock". This is happening for several genres. I have duplicate genres (i.e. "Classic Rock" and "ClassicRock")

    Windows explorer and Windows Media Player both see the metadata as "Classic Rock" (with a space) which is what it should be.

    This is not happening for WMAs. Only MP3. This is only happening with genre data.

    I can provide examples if needed.

    thanks,
    dan

    There have been some Genre reading updates, but not really related to this...

    Sure none of the files have ClassicRock as the Genre without a space? If you go into it, it will tell you which files and then open them in something like the program GodFather and see what the exact Genre was...

    I had this issue and had to fix a few of my files, using the GodFather which is a great tag editing software...

      I'm very sure my Metadata is correct. I'm a metadata freak. I've spent the last 5 years of my life building a script that goes through all my music and normalizes the metadata based on folder structure.

      I see the correct genre listed in windows explorer (file properties) as well as Windows Media Player and most other apps.

        That's weird it would take a space out of the middle like you describe... just with Genre?

        I do no extra parsing of the string from the tag I get back, they should all be the same...

        this happening for anyone else?

            I wish I could be more help but I can't find the genre tag in the MP3 that is showing up incorrectly in centrafuse.

            I opened it up in textpad and I can see album, artist, title and all other metadata but genre is nowhere to be found (at least in clear text) maybe it's encoded but I dont know why everything else is visible in the header but not genre.

            I'll keep digging around. Let me know if you want some sample files to repro and I'll put them on my FTP server.

              also - just confirmed with Godfather that the genre is showing up correctly. No spaces. Cool software BTW.

                It happened to me, but that was when I was using old tag headers. I edited my entire collection to use ID3v2.3 tags using the program, Mp3tag. Now all is well.

                It could be that Centrafuse can't read the legacy headers.

                  I know this isnt the same topic but is there a way to just remove the Genre item from the list....Genre is the only tag is screwed up on my mp3s and i never use Genre...instead of retagging all my mp3s i would rather just remove the Genre entry from the media library list...

                    Any update on this? It seems like its a bug and it's not reasonable to expect all users to go through their music collection and update their ID3 tags to ID3v.2.3

                    thanks,

                      I also just confirmed that all my MP3s that are having the problem are already ID3 v2.3
