Modifying incorrect track info?

Post by phule » Sun Apr 02, 2006 8:51 pm

How can I modify incorrect track info when part of freedb info is grayed-out?

I was correcting track titles on a CD I planned to rip/encode when I discovered that one track title contained 3 songs. But freedb lists the the track title as the 3rd song title. The 2nd & 3rd title are in the area devoted to the Artist name for that particular track and is grayed-out. The same artist performs on all tracks.

How can I delete the bad info in the grayed out are. All this info is obtained by cmd-I :?: :?:

To change the Artist, Album, Year, Genre, and Composer for individual tracks, check the Compilation checkbox above the track listing.

Won't doing this make the resulting encoded album be identified as a compilation, which it isn't?

True, it will. You could try my suggestion, then use Tag to remove the COMPLIATION tag, or just use Tag instead of Max for tagging.

Or, you could change all the info and then uncheck the Compilation box- the info will remain but the album won't be marked as a compilation.
