    FLAC Files Missing tags/Metadata

    My music collection possesses several albums whose FLAC files play, but which open blank, i.e. with no tags/metadata. Is there =anyway to restore the tags/metadata without possessing the original music sources?

    Thank you,

    Tom Swaman

    do the file names contain any useful info (directory/file name contains artist, album, track number, track title)?

    No Gary for the most part. Also, the computer, Windows 10 64-Bit, will not let me add album art, etc.

    Thanks,

    Too bad. Then you could have used tag from file name dsp to add tags. Odd about not adding art. I wonder if the files are marked read only. I have win10 (64) and do not have this issue.

    Garym,

    \How, exactly, can I find out if some of my approximately 320,000 items are marked "reads only"/

    What is indicated by what has the shape of a FLAC file, but is blank in the center?

    Thank you for your help.

    You can simply select all the files, right click, choose properties from the menu, then untick the read only option. This will remove that lock from any files that have this and wont bother ones that dont.

    Not it sure what you mean by second question.
