Strange Characters In Tag 2013-06-03 06:48:19 Hello,A buddy of mine found a disc with some MP3s burned on it. When we returned to the vehicle I played the disc in the Alpine receiver. All the tracks seem to play normally, but some of the tracks had tag problems. It didn't matter which tag was selected, YPO or some other YPx three letter combo was displayed. Later when we returned home I check these "bad" tracks with Mp3 Tag Tools and WinAMP. Both apps showed available tags. Next I compared the "bad" tracks with "good" tracks in a Hex editor. I noticed that every problematic track the tag was preceded with two characters, ÿþ. The tracks that displayed properly in the vehicle were absent of these two characters. These two characters appear to be the source of the YPx that was displayed in the vehicle. What I'm wondering is:Is there a purpose for preceding each tag with ÿþ? Which program may have created these messed up tags?Thanks.
