FS#11414 - .mod files - metadata in incorrect fields

I have a few .mod module files [1] on my iPod. Rockbox is able to play them, but it displays their metadata incorrectly: The module title is shown as “Artist”, and the “Title” field remains blank. (The .MOD format only supports storing a title, no other data.) This is very annoying, especially since it makes all .MOD files appear as a bunch of “<untagged>” tracks in the Database.

— Expected output — Artist: (none)
Album: (none)
Title: Floating Dimension

— Actual output — Artist: Floating Dimension
Album: (none)
Title: (none)

Fixed in SVN r28228

I can confirm that the title is indeed used as artist, there’s even a comment in the code: “Copy Title as artist”. I don’t know if this was on purpose or not.

In the SVN situation, there’s apparently some kind of fallback where the name of the file (minus the “.mod”)

I tried filling the title part with the .mod title and it seems to work, it does show up in the database under “track”, except now the WPS (cabbiev2) shows “(root)” for the artist.
Attached is the patch I tried.

   mod.diff (0.6 KiB)

The WPS could be fixed to show “(unknown artist)” and nothing for Album; this is not a big issue.
