Hi Audio Technology fans. I'm trying to convert Flac and other loseless files to wav for my Creative Nomad Jukebox 3. However when I play some tracks on it I get some horrible NOISE!!! at the end of the track. I believe this is because the tags. I have checked the output wave files in windows 7 explorer and see artist and album information in the respective fields. I believe that indicates that tags are being used. Is there a way to keep foobar from writing tags to converted data?

I love the output directory/file naming abilities of foobar. It makes adding this information back into the jukebox later a breeze. Foobar is the best. Thanks!

I seemed to have answered my own Question. During Conversion you leave "Show output tracks when done" checked. When it's done you select all. Press ALT+ENTER. Click Tools. Click Remove Tags.

Edit: I apologize. I was inquiring about foobar2000. I thought this was specifically foobar forum. I believe I have posted in the wrong place. sad.gif

IMHO, average user won't be able to guess that converted WAV is not playable by some app because foobar wrote the tags (that's if average user is able to user converter)
More sensitive approach would be to write WAV without tags (so to speak - as expected), and then add yet another option in converter's "Others" dialog to transfer the tags for users that do want to WAV with tags

My two cents: As an owner of the same ancient but long-lasting DAP, I hope you're keeping those lossless files store somewhere else, as larger files could mean increasing your chances of having one them landing on a bad sector on its aging hard drive.
