Subject: id3v2 incompatibility
From: Jon Drukman (
Date: 2004-01-09

i've been using this utility to tag my mp3 files.

it seems like rockbox doesn't like the id3v2 generated by this utility. i
confirmed this by tagging a file with K-MP3, then loading it in
rockbox. the artist/title shows up as just dots. i then removed the v2
tag using winamp. the id3v1 info shows fine. i then added a new id3v2
using winamp and the info was also fine.

i like this little app because it is small, fast and free. is it
generating bad data or is rockbox just not compatible with it? the files
seem to work fine in winamp. i haven't really checked on anything besides
winamp and rockbox.
