tagging woes (truncated text)
i've only just noticed that my hardware mp3 player is truncating the text on the title of some mp3s. thinking this was a limitation of the player display i didn't think much of it. but then loading the files into windows media player 10 truncates the titles in the exact same way. so now i'm slightly miffed. what gives?



i'm not fussed about windows media player but i would like the full info displayed on my mp3 player if possible. (tis an archos xs202s)

30 bytes of ASCII for the title: It's ID3v1.

foobar2000 0.9.3.1 writes tags in ID3v2 2.4, encoded as UTF-8. WMP probably doesn't recognize it.

thanks for the speedy reply. 

i suppose i can understand my mp3 player only supporting id3v1 tags but wmp? what a joke. i even have the rc1 of vista and that can't even read the full tags either.....

WMP supports ID3v2, it just doesn't support ID3v2.4.

foobar2000 is one of the few players that understands ID3v2.4.  Some zealots call it a feature.
Is 24-bit/192kHz good enough for your lo-fi vinyl, or do you need 32/384?

Well WMP has always been far behind

Now could someone tell the OP how to get foobar to write ID3V2.3 tags?

foobar 0.9.4 can write to id3v2.3 by setting it up on the advance settings window.
