Conversion forgets tags if metadata contains '?'

Post by dave » Thu Feb 09, 2006 9:10 pm

Hi,

I just converted several thousand tracks from FLAC to Apple Lossless. The vast majority transferred over fine but a few didn't.

I believe the common link is question marks. Any song with a question mark in it's tags, got converted okay but was added to iTunes with no tags.

I had one album with a question mark in the actual album title and that caused every track on the album to lose their tags.

I'm not convinced that it's only question marks that cause problems. R.E.M's Green album failed (every track) so I'm guessing the dots may have caused trouble. Song's with double quotes are also a potential problem area, though I'm not sure if they were 'smart' quotes or not.

Thanks for the software, it really helped me out,

cheers,

dave

Also, albums tagged with disc numbers (e.g disc 1 of 2, disc 2 of 2 etc.) seem to have their track numbers overwritten by their disc number.
