Hi:

Thanks for reading.

When I convert files, I see that Foobar added to the "TRACK" field:
1st.- A backslash
2nd.- The total value of the album tracks in question

For example:
TRACK field: "03"
TRACK field after modified by Foobar: "03/23"

And I can not find a field (either type "Extended Fields" or Type "Information Fields") which shows the total for the album tracks, for in this way I can modify it, and so Foobar do not change my field "TRACK", that I would have previously prepared.

Thank you again.

Thanks:

Except edit file set (same album), and from only FOOBAR2000... not see any other way. Although it is a standardized field.

And to further complicate, working with CUE files. ... impossible

keep trying ...

Maybe I don't understand what you're trying to do, but for INDIVIDUAL files, if you can select a bunch of them, right click, properties, then you can modify the TOTALTRACKS field for all of them at once...

If the "tracks" are part of single file with embedded (or external) cuesheet then you probably are not allowed to alter that value because it will render the cuesheet invalid. After all cuesheets are meant to "take the picture" of an original CD and it wouldn't make much sense to alter the total tracks number of that...

Edit: removed "if" and "probably"

Edit 2: If you substantially alter your posts with your edits, my answers doesn't seems to make much sense either! smile.gif
