Titles getting chopped?
Hey all,
Basically whenever I add files with 'longish' titles, they sometimes get chopped. I've checked, and rewritten the tags for the files, and they're all full length, and even when i reload the tags from file it still chops the end off, any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Not so fast.  Don't do that.

If foobar is displaying truncated titles, then that's the data it has in the db, and if you rewrite all the tags, it will write this truncated data to all your mp3s.  Not good.

Could you be more specific about what you're using to tag your files?

IIRC, foobar can't read ID3v2 tags without the ID3v2 plugin (available in Case''s installs, and maybe in the special edition on the main page).  If it's chopping titles, it's likely it's only reading ID3v1 tags, or the files only have ID3v1 tags..
