Track# not updated.

Post by fenrir » Thu Mar 27, 2008 6:58 am

A lot of my songs have invalid track# (containing parts of artist name).
I selected all the invalid files and in the property window clicked the tick next to Track# (thus emptying the value). I even selected all the files and clicked Ctrl+S.

Yet if I clear my library and rescan it, the tags are back to what they were.

Please help me out

Its a known problem with the current MM build - a track with an empty track # field gets part of the artist name put into it when its scanned in. You have two options:

1) Install the newest beta, the issue has been fixed

or

2) Go to Tools -> Options -> Library and uncheck 'Infer track properties'

Hey,

Thanks for the suggestion, I've just downloaded the latest beta. One quick question.. if i install it over an existing version.. i wont loose my personal settings / modified scripts right?

Also, could you please explain a little more on what does 'Infer track properties' do?

Thanks again

If you hold your mouse cursor over the check box beside the option, a tooltip will explain it. :)

Installing a new version will not modify your settings/scripts, unless you've modified a script that is installed by default (if so I suggest you change its name so it is not overwritten).
