    DSD Tag Error Reading

    I used Perfect Tunes 3.2 to search for tag errors, in particular I knew I had some of these in Album Artist, plus others.
    After the time to 'read' the NAS, all the errors in PCM files were ID'd & I set about fixing.
    Problem was it did not 'find' DSD tag errors; I knew where they were & the tags do show in Perfect Tunes folder file view. but not in the tag read.
    Does 3.2 have this ability, not a problem if it doesn't, I just need to know if/what I did wrong.

    What exact tag value were you searching for and how were searching?

    P.Tunes ID Tags
    Sort Tags
    Album Artist Sort Tags

    It found the PCM (FLAC) Album Artist tags that were missing or other errors, but did not show the same with DSD tags that had errors that I knew were there
    It does read the DSD files & all the tags OK from the NAS.

    If you browse by:

    ID Tags >> Browse by Metadata >> Artist / Album

    are you able to find those DSD albums?

    Re: DSD Tag Error Reading

    Hi again, I think I've found a better/simpler way to show you the problem:
    Browsing the NAS by File & Folders >> Album Edit Mode
    It shows all albums including DSD in the folder tree
    It shows PCM (FLAC) album content details, header, art, tracks & tags etc
    It does NOT SHOW any DSD album content

    Your files have a .dsf extension?

    Yes, all show as .dsf
    dBpoweramp Edit ID Tags header shows as .dsf
    Windows 'properties' show as DSF File (.dsf)

    (All my DSD files are DSD64)

    Perhaps the codec did not install, try to uninstall PerfectTUNES, full reboot of Windows and re-install.

    If you look in the perfecttunes install folder there should be a decoder folder in there 'DSD SACD.dll'

    I've done as requested, no change
    Looked in Program Files>>PerfectTUNES>>Decoder .... there is no DSD SADC .dll

    Try copying the DLL from the dbpoweramp decoder folder to the perfecttunes decoder folder.

    Success !!!! I didn't copy the whole folder, just copy/pasted the DSD SADC.dll to
    P.Tunes Decoder folder

    Browsing the NAS by File & Folders >> Album Edit Mode
    It shows all albums including DSD in the folder tree
    It now shows both FLAC & DSD album content details, header, art, tracks & tags etc

    Thanks for your help
