    Ipod 4 character tags

    Yes, I did search and all I could find was a couple of posts saying that "Tag support" must be on in RR. Well, I'm not exactly sure which properties "tag support" refers to, but I assume it's id2/id3 mp3 tags which I do have set. Anyway, I hooked up my ipod into rr with the "ipoddrive=d" param. RR picks it up and everything plays. Oddly enough, in the music browser I see artist and track names, but in labels I only see the 4 character label:



    Here's the content of my RR.ini

    Interestingly enough, it looks like songs with ID3v1 tags work just fine; any others do not -- no matter what I set the tag support options to.

    That is just the filename saved from itunes.. if it shows like that is because RR couldn't read the file's tag.... RR can read WMA, OGG and MP3 tags natively, for anything else you'll need to put mediainfo.dll in RR's folder -- even so if the file doesn't have tags written within, then all RR can do is show the filename.

    hrm, I checked them; they are all mp3 with ID3V2 tags. I'll just use mediamonkey to copy all the ID3V2 tags to ID3V1.

    Thanks Guino.

    If the ID3 versiom 2.4, then RR won't be able to read it.. only 2.2 and 2.3 work.. maybe itunes is saving as 2.4 ...
