View Full Version : Tag issues

10-01-2006, 01:27 PM
I am using the Nero AAC codec to convert my mp3 to AAC, the problem is that the output file works fine but none of my programs is able to read the tags, except for db itself, what can I do? It is very annoying to have all my songs detected as "Unknown artist -..." and it's a pain in the ass trying to manage them on my phone (Nokia 3250), btw, the phone has no issues reading the AAC/mp4 tags of files that have been converted with the program that comes with it, only that the program is crappy and bad for converting songs.

writing .aac or .m4a?

.aac has no formal tagging standard, that will be why.

For some reason my answer got deleted... so here it is again, I converted to .aac

Ack! I'm sorry, I think I was viewing an outdated version of this page... my bad... I don't understand then, how come the other program (Nokia PC Suite) made .aac and the information could be detected? My songs did have all the information... anyway, if .aac won't work, what can I do?

Since there is no standard, the Nokia program and phone cannot read the tags that dMC makes. However, dMC can read their tags. Have you tried converting to m4a and then using the m4a to AAC codec (here: http://www.dbpoweramp.com/codec-central-mp4.htm)? Its possible that could work.
