Mp3 Tag question

I am having an issue with Mp3 tags. Before getting WinAmp Pro I ripped about 30 cd’s with MusicMatchPlus version 10. It is supposed to use the same MP3v1.2 encoding, but the file names are in a different format and the tags don’t show up on my car Mp3 disk player.

Is there any easy way to convert tags on a large about of files? Any suggestions for how I can deal with these tracks? They were borrowed cd’s so I cant re-rip them very easily.

are you talking about mass tagging id3 tags? or are you talking about converting formats?

for mass tagging i suggest mp3tag or the godfather. both can be downloaded from the links in my sig.

as for converting format...if thats your question, i dont know.

hehe I am not positive what I am talking about! All I know for sure is that a bunch of tracks ripped with MusicMatch10 have tags my car player cant read.

Ones I ripped with an older version of music match are fine. All files ripped with Winamp Pro are fine.

I need to figure out how to re-tag the offending files in a format that matches WinAmps tagging.

billyvnilly,
Thanks for that help. The Godfather appears to do the trick I can update all of the offending files and change the tag encoding. I can’t test it right now (its -15 and my car is pretty frozen), but I am comparing the tag info of the changed tracks with ones I know are ok and they look the same now. Im pretty confident I have it figured out.

Thanks again!
