    id3 question

    I can't get road runner to show my id3 tags. Some times a few show up, but most songs just show up as the file name. If I load winamp alone everything shows up fine in the playlist window. What am I missing?

    edit: My configure is set up to prefer id3 v2, id3 playlist and browser are checked only, Playlist is formated %artist% - %title%, I have winamp set to all default settings, All tags were created simultaneously with itunes to v2.2, and I am using void 3.31

    ok I was looking at the track info and I noticed that under comments there was this code: 000002AC 0000029D 00002EA4 00003C85 000107C6 00014C0A 000079C4 00007877 0001C48D 00020368. If I delete it then RR shows the id3 info. What is this? Also when viewing id3 info from itunes the comments don't come up, just winamp.

    chances are itunes is writing ID3 info in some way that's incompatible with RR, but compatible with winamp -- then when you removed the comments (probably in winamp) -- it re-wrote the ID3 in a compatible method and now it works... I do not own an ipod or even have/care for itunes myself, so I don't know what's writing but I'd recommend just using something like ID3-TagIT to convert/fix your ID3 tags all at once.

    There are a number id3v2 formats... id3v2.2, id3v2.3, id3v2.4, etc. Although WinAmp can display them all properly, I believe RR can only display up to id3v2.3 and iTunes writes in id3v2.4. I have one of those free id3 tag editors that I use to batch convert all the tags in my itunes lib to id3v2.3, and then they display great in RR.

    Yeah they were 2.1. I fixed the problem by loading all my files into the winamp library and updating the tags.
