RE: ID3 tags error

Yep, I installed the latest build, and sure enough, it fixed the problem.

On another note, one of the Rockbox boys mentioned that the firmware
recognizes both ID3 Tag V1 and V2. So I decided to check it out. I edited
one of my MP3 files which had both and displayed correctly on my AJB 6000
and removed the V1 info and just had the V2 data (less than 300 characters).
Unfortunately, it displayed the infamous <no artist> and <no title> data.
Did I do something wrong?

Please try the latest daily build. There was a bug with ID3 v1 tags not
being read properly in some cases which was fixed this weekend.
