    "Convert tag from filename" and "Edit tag"

    Hello all

    Whenever I add MP3 files to my music folder
    (path format : E:\Music\Genre\Artist\Year Album\Tracknumber Title)
    I use ""Convert tag from filename" to adjust the tags (ID3 v2.3).

    This has always worked fine - until just recently.

    With files more recently tagged in this way
    "Edit tag" (from the right-click menu in Windows Explorer)
    displays not only "Track" (i.e. the track number)
    (in the position and with the information I want and would expect)
    but also "track number" (lower case), as far as I can see
    with the same information.

    How has this slipped into the tagging ?
    (Older tracks in my collection do not have it.)

    How can I get rid of this duplication ?

    Best regards and thanks in advance for any tips
    Raymond Russell

    You are using just [tag from filename]?

    did you check if the mp3 had these tags before? you ran tag from filename?

    Hello Spoon

    Thanks for your answer.

    As you suspected, I had been mixing up the effects of
    [track]
    [track number] and
    [title].

    I have now listed the correct path information from which to derive ID tags and "tag from filename" produces tags as I wanted.

    Thanks again from Ray
