LAME v3.97 (beta) Tagging

Just a quick question. I'm using this preset:


-V 2 --vbr-new --add-id3v2 --pad-id3v2 --ta "%a" --tt "%t" --tg "%m" --tl "%g" --ty "%y" --tn "%n" %s %d


Everything is fine with it but the only thing I'm not too keen on is when I check the finished MP3 file in ID3-TagIT or another program it has the genre listed as (7) ?
Is there anyway of changing that to so it lists the PROPER genre so to speak? It shows up correctly in foobar though. It might just be me trying to be a perfectionist and probably can't be changed? If not it's probably just me worrying over nothing! If so if anyone could tell me as to why this is I'd be curious to know as to why the genres are listed as (1) (2) etc? Maybe it's just that particular piece of software? Cheers.

Each genre has a corresponding number.  Use:

LAME.EXE --genre-list

to view the genre text and corresponding number.

I can only assume that these programs are incorrectly reading the number and not converting to the text equivalent.  As you are writing ID3v1 and ID3v2 this may be causing them problems, although it shouldn't.
I'm on a horse.

Appreciate it peeps. Thanks for the quick response. One final question and this will be my last (for the meantime) I promise! If I use just the -V 2 --vbr-new command and check the 'Add ID3 tag' box under the 'External Compression' tab and a few other check boxes under the 'ID3 Tag' box everything comes out exactly as I like... except! The track numbers come out as 01, 02 etc. And again, me being an annoying perfectionist I'd prefer them as 1, 2, 3 etc. Any ideas on how to remove the extra 0 before the track number? Thanks again guys (and gals). Sorry for being a pain.
