Hi Guys,

Newby here and apology's if this has been answered... It may be quite simply but im not finding tag.exe's documentation very easy to understand...

Im trying to batch encode all of my .ape files with id3v1 tags...
The filenames are as follows:

eg. c:\music\The Al Di Meola Project - Kiss My Axe [EAC APE]\The Al Di Meola Project - Kiss My Axe - Global Safari.ape

I want to populate the tags with the Artist - Album - Title information.

Evertime i refer to the A L T scheme i end up with the following information in the ARTIST field in the tag:

The Al Di Meola Project - Kiss My Axe [EAC APE]

when it should just be:

The Al Di Meola Project

I take it that TAG is pulling the Artist information (A - scheme) information from the foldername...

Is there anyway to tell it NOT to pull this information from the folders and filename and from the cuefile?


failing that, is there anyway of telling it not to look at any of the information BEFORE the "-" in the folder name?


* Maybe theres another command line tagger i can use that will pull the fields from the .cue file as oposed to folder and filename???

Glad to hear it! smile.gif

What program did you use to do the splitting? Did you use anything else besides that and tag.exe?

Your eyes cannot hear.
