some apps, like winamp, will merge several things for display. so it will read many, prefer one if multiple exist, and write only to the preferred one. i believe winamp writes it with the space, but for id3 its a bit different, as 4 char codes are used, TPE2.

mp3tag meanwhile, does not merge them, unless set to in the tag mapping options. by default, it wants it without the space.

in mp3tag, i "unmapped" them, gave each their own column, and deleted all the ones winamp doesn't like after making sure the info was in the ones winamp did like.

winamp will not automatically write any tags without being instructed to.
