Thanks so much for looking at the file for me.

But now I'm flummoxed. Should I get a program that converts all my tags from ID3v2.4 to ID3v2.3? A brief Google search has turned up Tag Tinker and MP3 Tag Clinic - any suggestions?

Or will that take care of it at all? If the existing TCON tag is an ID3v2.3 tag but just formatted incorrectly like ID3v2.4, does that mean that one of these conversion utilities won't do anything to help?

Am I just stuck with re-ripping my collection with a different ripper-encoder? Boy, that would be a pain.

Sorry for all of the dumb questions - I'm not that technically savvy but am trying very hard . . .
