they always show “Unknown Artist”
Secondly, although a text editor is not an ideal way to assess the contents of binary files, your results show clearly that your player will only read Album Artist when it is stored in a TXXX (custom) frame, not when it is stored in TPE2. Thus, uncheck the option “Map TPE2 to Album Artist” within foobar2000’s Advanced Preferences, hold shift and right-click, choose “Tagging”>“Rewrite file tags”, and try the resulting file on your player again.
As already stated on March 24, it is of no avail entering the information into the field Artist Name since my portable player does not read it as well.
How can I write the tag information in the format my mobile players can read?
Or is there a bug in fg2k which makes fb2k write information to the file in a confusing form?
After some other characters I can find, with other characters in between, the string “LAME3.99” 3 times at the beginning of the file and more than 50 times at the end of the file.Does this maybe obstruct readability for my portable player?
