FS#12280 - Error reading ID3 tag of MP3 file with cover

Once I embeded a cover into some of my mp3 files and remove it, Rockbox can scan ID3 tag from it. However, I can use Foobar2000 to read tags.
The tag is written in ID3 v2.3.

And finally I’m sorry to say that I’m in China and not able to use Dropbox or Mediafire.
I uploaded the file here: 03.鳥の詩.7z

Reason for closing:  Not a Bug

I was not able to access the file from there.

Edit: Alternatively you could just cut off the first – let's say – 200 KB of the file and attach it here.

OK, I split it into several files.
Please Help me upload.

First 4 part here.

And the rest of the files.

It seems to work fine here, at least playing the track in the simulator (not that I can tell if it actually shows the right characters, but the title at least looks similar to the filename above). It even looks better in Rockbox than in Foobar2000 (1.1.7), where the title doesn't show up properly.

Could you explain the problem in some more detail, please? Also, which version of Rockbox are you using?

Generally seems to work for me as well when selecting a font that supports the character set (for the test I selected 16-GNU-Unifont.fnt). Can you tell us if the displayed Title and Composer is correct?

The title and ablum is correct, but can't display artist. Instead it displays the foldername.
I updated to custom r30563 and it seems to work correctly now.
