mp3 with wrong duration

Hi everybody,

My question has probably been asked before (sorry) : I have an MP3 with a wrong duration of 22:08, when the song is actually 3:48. How can I restore the correct duration ?

Thanks.

If you are depending on WMP to tell you the length then that is your problem. Microsoft software is notorious for not displaying the correct length of VBR files.

Nope, I'm using foobar. Try again.

Right click on the file in Foobar and go to Utils > Fix VBR MP3 Header...
