    Convert Music with Commnets

    I just converted a few Miles Davis CDs. My recent practice is to add the musician credits to the comments field (seeing none other as a better fit). When I converted the AIFF files (which had the commnets) to FLAC, none of the comments carried over. Why is that?

    Oh hold on. I misread that.

    Is the comments field a valid option for AIFF format?
    I have noticed that comments is no longer one of the standard fields when editing ID tags. Wonder if that has anything to do with it.

    I believe you have to specify which tags do, or do not, carry over. There are some that carry over by default; I'm sure Comments is not one of those.

    I thought all tags would carry over. How do you specify certain tags like comments?

    I'm sorry, I was thinking in terms of CD Ripper and thought that Music Converter would work similarly.

    There is an ID Tag Processing DSP you can add that should work as far as I can see, but I haven't used it. If I have time, I'll test it; in the meantime, I hope someone else will jump in to give you an actual answer, which I am now interested in as well.

    I should have read your original post more closely. I have been converting AIFF to FLAC for some time now.

    I checked my files and did a test conversion, and confirmed that comments are carrying over. However, while I can see the FLAC comments using Edit Id-Tag, for some reason File Explorer won't display them, as shown in the example you posted.

    Hopefully Spoon or Peter will see this and be able to fix the issue.

    It is just Windows not following the FLAC specification on ogg vorbis tagging, see:

    https://forum.dbpoweramp.com/showthr...h-dBpoweramp-s

    as to how to put dBpoweramps tag reader instead of the broken Windows one in place.

    CD Rpper:
    Only converts to the fourth song and hangs up.
    Example: only converts to the fourth song and stays hung, with all CDs.
    what is the problem?

    Thanks for your feedback.

    We'd like to know a few more details about your configuration:
    • Version of dBpoweramp application - R15.8, R16.1 or other?
    • Operating system (Windows, mac OS) version
    • Optical drive model

    So that I fully understand, Windows 10 won't display the comments embedded in FLAC files, but those comments are in fact embedded in the FLAC files. Yet, Windows 10 will display the comments embedded in AAIF files. So if I have a need to convert the FLAC files back to AIFF, the non-displayed comments in the FLAC files will be displayed in the converted AIFF files?

    Correct, you can test with 1 file.
