Adding ReplayGain tags kills/moves original tags!

I can't seem to add ReplayGain tags to my mp3s without foobar mutilating my other tags. For example, depending on the options I've chosen (tag to write: ID3v1 only, ID3v1 & V2, etc), instead of simply adding replaygain tags (ID3v2), foobar decides to either:

(a) copy my ID3v2 tags over to my ID3v1 tags (artist, title, etc)
(b) delete my ID3v1 tags (artist, title, etc)

These are things I don't want it to do. All I'm trying to do is ADD ReplayGain tags, and I dont want any of my other tags touched, copied, or moved. Is it possible somehow?

I'm not the only one getting frustrated by this it seems... http://www.misticriver.net/boards/showthre...ed=1#post294203

[ 1st post - sorry if its in the wrong place. ]
[ I'm a lover of foobar, keep up the good work - I love the ORDER BY ARTIST feature in the playlist, which winamp doesnt have]

I just found foobar2000 and it actually does the one function I want it to do: write replaygain ID3v2 tags. I run linux and was able to load up 0.8.3 under Wine (the 0.9 beta painfully refuses to install because "win2k is required") and while fb2k does in fact run none of my ID3v2 tags (very standard tags, no custom ones) are recognized and in fact when I process a list of files fb2k successfully removes all my standard ID2v3 tags and leaves my files with *only* the four replaygain tags. And since I don't use APE or ID3v1 tags I couldn't care less if it mutilates them. By all means, remove them. But is it normal for fb2k to remove the standard ID3v2 tags?

Thankfully I am and always will be wary of tagging apps so I run a great many tests on a select handful of files to make sure my many, many, many hours of efforts getting my audio files setup just right are not lost to apps that seemingly do things of their own accord.

Failing a way to make fb2k write the four replaygain tags (and remove NOTHING) I will have to download the mp3gain source and figure out how it's written and add support for applying ID3v2 tags (it only write APE tags) unless someone knows another app that will write ID3v2 replaygain tags.

Umm, one of those sentences is definatelly too long. I am not sure if i understand you correctly. FB2K should theoretically behave as it says it would behave in the preferences (i.e. if tagging is set to "write id3v1 and id3v2" then according to the posted screenshot it should keep and write id3v1 and v2 - but remove apev2). If there is still something wrong going on, then you may want to search the forums for the keywords "id3v2 unicode system-codepage". It should clear some things up.

BTW: the default behaviour (as well as configurable behaviour) has changed in 0.9. There, "id3v1 and id3v2" is the default, instead of "id3v1 and APEv2". And you can also change some other things there. Sorry to hear that it doesn't launch on your system.
