Problem with file Info on Wav files

Post by mikicasellas »

Hi does anyone has seen that playing Decibel with Wav files does not recognize the Albums info, it only shows the song name so it is very difficult to find some artist since only the songs are shown, the rest of the info shows "Unknown" and it does not happen with "Aiff" files, anyone knows how to fix this...?

Thank you!

Do the WAVE files contain tags? For example, if you open them in a tag editor such as Tag do the artist and album show up? iTunes doesn't save the information to the files themselves, only to the iTunes library. If you'd like to send me one for testing I will be happy to take a look.

I"m having the same problem. I have wave files I imported into iTunes, and Decibel doesn't pick up anything but the titles.

Do the files themselves contain tags? One way to tell is to open them in Tag (the new version) and see what tags, if any, show up.

I downloaded tag, and when I open the files I can see the same information for wave files - album, artist, track - that I see for AAC. However, it's only wave that are missing info in decibel.
