Title: TAGS not readable on HD
Post by: Adil on 2021-06-13 21:24:54
Hi there.

When I convert a CD image (CUE/FLAC) to .flac tracks, CUETools (v2.1.9) doesn't print the tags to the files. foobar2000 can see the tags, but they are not visible on the hard disk.

When I do the same conversion using foobar2000, the tags are visible correctly, both on the hard disk and on the player itself.

What do you mean, tags on hard disk? You mean file names?
You have to configure how you want file names to be created, from which tags, in which order.
CUEtools use foobar tag references.

Windows' File Explorer doesn't show 'Artist', 'Album', 'Genre', etc...

But if I use foobar2000 to convert a image CD, File Explorer shows all tag information.

Please provide Mode checkbox info, Audio Output settings (encoder) and tagging settings
http://cue.tools/wiki/CUETools_Advanced_Settings:_Tagging
(no problem here with libFLAC, cuetools - Win10Pro v2004)


Edit: Note: Also be aware that CUETools writes tags last (after all files are encoded) so tags won't show in explorer until everything is complete.

Encoder: FLAC (cuetools)
Mode: Tracks
Advanced Settings: default (everything)
Windows 10 v20H2 (x64)

What Windows version? For 7 and below, you would need a so-called "property handler". You can get one from https://www.sevenforums.com/music-pictures-video/174276-windows-cant-read-flac-tags-3.html#post2264132

And here you find some Microsoft dude's excuse for Windows being so fucking retarded: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_files-insiderplat_pc/why-microsoft-is-not-adding-a-property-handler-for/d0786b06-510a-479f-87c5-bff58cddf843
FLAC like MP3 is "pirates-only" and therefore Windows did ... uh, support MP3!
Nah, the real reason was probably that Windows wanted WMAL to take over the lossless segment, and ...

Thanks for your information!
Like I said above, I use Windows 10 v20H2 (x64).
I can't understand why foobar2000 can see all tags but File Explorer doesn't.
I think it's probable a problem with the latest update patch of Windows 10.
Anyway, when I convert a CD image by foobar2000 all tags are correctly read by File Explorer.

Eff, I scrolled up to see if you had posted it.

What if you try the property handler and see if it changes anything?

Windows' property handler works fine!

I solved the problem. The tags weren't showing because I was inserting album arts with more than 8MB.

Everything went back to normal after I applied the Optimize file layout + minimize file size feature.
