A nice feature might be a quick key press to set the preference field....

Just a thought

Way Cool!

The ID3 Info screen has lots of new fields, and they seem to work as
advertised. I've seen Genre and Track Number with data that wouldn't
display before. I don't have any unusual years that I know of, nor do I use
the Composer field. Having the Genre work with text data is particularly

The 4 new WPS tags don't display *anything*, however. I made sure I was
using the right WPS file, and I made sure I was using your build. Maybe I
did something else wrong?

Anyway, I think this is great progress

I tried the Chopper Thingey.

I set...
   Chop File Prefix: Yes
   At or After First:
   Character of Type: Punctuation

I could not change the middle setting, since there was nothing to set.

On "Character of Type", the setting "Letter or Digit" displays as "Letter or
D". Perhaps on the player it should be "Ltr / Digit", or maybe "Ltr or
Digt", since that fits the 11 character screen.

My files look like "01 - Filename.mp3". With the above settings I get
"- Filename.mp3".
