Hi rainer,

It depends on who suffered the most frustration and needs to celebrate. Could be one person or everyone!

Chris: Yes, the Lambrusco could go in there, as long as I don't use that field for the title.

And Monica: Ay! I went looking for my Pig Latin dictionary... and can't find it! Oynoway!!!

David :mrgreen:

Hi Chris, Monica, and rainer

OK, here is what I did in AVS Audio Converter:

Composer: rachmaninov-scale-april.mp3 (Note: mp3 is automatically added by AVS, so I didn't duplicate it. But once it is exported, Windows adds mp3 again!!! So I had to delete the suffix entirely from the file so that it will only appear once as affixed by Windows.)

Title: Rachmaninov - Scale in C major, Op. 1, No. 2

Artist: David April

Genre: Classical (it's a pull-down menu selection)

Year: 2012

I went to Windows Explorer. All that does is point you to the file location which I already knew. I right clicked on the file and selected Properties, then Details. It produced a display totally different from Monica's, but nonetheless it appeared that all information was there. I attached it here. If it doesn't work, I give myself up the the guys in the white coats. :mrgreen:

David

Almost there now :D
The Composer tag should read "Rachmaninov", not "rachmaninov-scale-april", and the Album tag should read "http://pianosociety.com". All else is perfect now.

Yes, very good. Leave the Veuve Cliquot on ice and celebrate your partial success with a bottle of cheap Cava. :)

I'm puzzled by why you would use the same chunk of text "rachmaninov-scale-april" both for the filename and the composer field. I'm unfamiliar with AVS AC, but if it automatically links these two, perhaps as a result of your having unwittingly configured it to do so, then ideally you should try to figure out why this anomalous behaviour is happening. But perhaps meanwhile the expedient thing to do would be to ensure the composer field is right, and to let AVS call the file by the same name if it really wants to. Then once AVS has finished with it, you could just rename the file in Windows Explorer.

Alternatively it may be possible (others have, I think, said so) that you can use Explorer not just to view the tag values but to change them.

Hi rainer

Yes, probably I shouldn't have used the Piano Society nomenclature though, I agree, as it's actually causes an extra step for me. That is, on the file itself I'll have to rename it to conform to my own naming convention for all my recorded music files here. So next time I'll definitely avoid that, which should automatically solve the duplicate "mp3" issue during the upload. Anyway, I'm glad it worked!

They are out of Cava, but Andre is comparable and should do the trick!

Thanks again for your assistance!

David

Can you stuff a big bottle of Lambrusco in the 'Comments' field for me ? We don't use that and there is lots of space :)


You should be able to stuff a case of Lambrusco in the 'Comments' field. 8)

Hi Scott,

As it turned out, it took two cases!
