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.

Excuse me for editing my post: He wrote his post, while I edited my last post (I corrected "individual files" by "the same set of files album")

The solution proposed, has the problem of only it is valid, if it is working of album to album (one by one). With programs like "Mp3tag" as handled standard fields, if you can work with multiple albums at once. Provided that the the software second (Foobar 2000) recognize this field.

But yes, if you go from album to album .... no problem

Nekab,

I just tried altering the TOTALTRACKS properties of several tracks belonging to different albums comprising a mix of "single track per file" and some belonging to a "single file per album with embedded cuesheet".

There were tracks where the TOTALTRACKS properties was 14, 8, 11 and 17, the last one, 17, being the one of the tracks from the "embedded cuesheet" multi-tracks file.

I selected *all of them* at once and changed the TOTALTRACKS properties to 1 in a single operation.

Result: all "single track per file" tracks had their TOTALTRACKS properties set to 1.

The tracks within the "single file per album with embedded cuesheet" maintained the original attribute of 17, which is absolutely correct. You can't change that. As a matter of fact I don't think there is a TOTALTRACKS attribute STORED for cuesheet files (embedded or not). The value is derived from a count of the tracks present in the cuesheet.

Now, can you please try to explain what are you trying to do and what is not working for you?

If your scenario is similar to the one I described above and things are not working for you, is it possible that you made any changes to your foobar2000 configuration, especially as far as regards the "Advanced -> Display -> Properties dialog -> Standard fields" configuration?

Regards,

Sergio
