Wow!  I've been cleaning up my music collection in the past few weeks and have messed around with various rippers/taggers/converters, mostly for linux (but some that run under wine too), and have been mostly disappointed by bugs, lack of features, or non-user-friendly interfaces.  Finally I have found a tagging program that does exactly what I want, exactly the way I want it!  Plus it runs just fine in linux using wine.  Thank you so much!

Not all tracks contain additional information. Also sometimes additional info can't be parsed.

Ok

This is a great application

Does it downloads additional covers like back cover,disc cover?

Only covers. Most of albums in online databases contain only front cover art.
My concept is that the front covers is a necessary and sufficient condition for comfortable work with music files in any software and hardware.

I really like this program with the little bit of time I have spent with it.

I'm having a problem though. When I go to clear out the comment sections of tags I get constant crashing, especially when they say what they were encoded with.

Any suggestions?

any chance to add TagScanner to the context menu? (like "scan this folder with tagscanner")
I liked that about Tag&Rename (which I abandoned now :>)

When I use TAG Processor for an album, I get the track info in this format: xx/xx (or x/x, or xxx/xxx, depending on the settings).

Is there a way to get simply XX?

Another question: maybe I'm missing something, but... is there the chance to get the cover art (folder.jpg) downloaded automatically when importing tags from online databases? I know that to click on "save cover art to externalk file" is not a big problem... but often I forget to do and so I miss lots of covers...

You can clear total tracks in tag editor, just select files, clear value and click Save.

Program embed coverart into files when you get album info from internet. If you need also external files ? you can rightclick in filelist and select Export cover to file function.

Thanks, I just hoped in an automatic setting for those functions.
Still a great software, btw!!

With version 5.1.555 track numbers are incrementing by two instead of one when saving through tracks.  Is this a bug or am I doing something wrong?

Can it automatically number the tracks from 1 to [total number]? How?

Select the first track with with you wish to start, enter the beginning number, click on the track button and then continually click save through the subsequent tracks.

I sometimes like to renumber multidisc sets so that the numbering continues on from the previous discs.  This is how I discovered the problem.  I reverted back to 5.0 since it doesn't have this problem.

This problem already hotfixed in current build, just redownload program from homepage.

Select files, enter first track number, Rightclick on filelist and click Autonumbering.

Every time I try to use Tagscanner to do a search of freedb, tracktype or amazon, I get the error message: "could not connect to server: socket error #11004.

I let tagscanner reorganize my entire mp3 collection, however, like an idiot, I let it add Folders with the Album Name and then the mp3's inside that folder.  Is there anyway to get rid of the Album Folders and just have the songs listed in one master folder?

Activate [Restructure] feature. Select root folder and set format string for new filenames. Also you may select [Delete empty folders] to delete old folders.

Hello,

I just started using Tagscanner. While I really like the interface and the software as a whole, I stumbled over the exactly same problem I am having with every other tagger I tried, except for the build in tagger from foobar2000.

How do I put multiple entries into one tag? I have tried / // \ \\ ; , with and without spaces, to no avail.

Please help.

Best Regards,

Wacko

It is such a shame that this tool has zero documentation. It has lot of potential, but since you cannot find anything (how to add/show custom tags; export list placeholders etc) it is useless to me.

I'm a newbie to using TagScanner and so I'm likely missing something obvious.  I'm using 5.1.630 on a Windows XP with a Netgear NAS.  When I browse to the folders on the NAS, Tagscanner does not display any of the tags or any of the files.  As a test I put a folder on my desktop and opened the tags just fine with TagScanner and then moved the folder to the NAS.  Using TagScanner again there were no tags for any of the files in the folder.  Is there some kind of setting I need to do this?  I've gone through TagScanner manual, done online searches, etc. but can't locate this information.  Does this have something to do with the NAS operating system (OS is based on Debian Linux.)?  Any help will be appreciated.  Thanks.

I'm new to TagScanner and I'm having some problems.

1. I can create new Test Transforms, and they work, but if I close the program and restart it, they disappear.

2. I'm trying to get TagScanner to capitalize titles according to the rules for English.  Someone has probably already worked out a fancy regex to do this.  Roughly, certain words must be lowercased but the first and last word are always capitalized.

3. Is there a way to run transforms just on the tags, not renaming or tagging from filenames?
