Hi wink.gif

Since I have few different versions of CD that have the same album titles and track titles (eg: the sames songs are sung in different languages), I would like to store the barcode number (EAN/UPC) in a specific tag when ripping CD's to flac and/or mp3 files (eg: instead of or in addition to specifying " [Irish Edition]" in the album title).

Some of you put the barcode in the comment tag. I also noticed that EAC add a CATALOG tag to store EAN/UPC in cue sheets but I don't use cue files. I noticed that the MusicBrainz component adds a <BARCODE> tag (I don't use this component). And dBpoweramp creates a <UPC> tag which is not really accurate since most of my CDs have EAN numbers (13 digits instead of 12)

I've been using a custom tag <EAN> until now... unsure.gif

Any suggestions or advice? Thanks smile.gif
