FS#13205 - ID3 tags inside of AIFF files not being detected by the database

I’m currently trying to set up the database on my iPod using AIFF files with ID3 tags. However, AIFF files will not be detected when the database is initialised or updated. MP3 files with identical contents and tags are detected correctly, and I am able to see MP3 files sorted by album/genre/etc in the database.

Please find attached some sample files from my testing. They should have identical ID3 headers, and they contain a 30-second sine wave, which is being used purely as filler. The AIFF file is not detected during a database scan; the MP3 file is.

I have observed this bug on stable version 3.15 and on development build 7F3142fc5c-200621.

If any further clarification is required, please let me know.
