    WAV ID tags not displayed properly in Windows Explorer

    Hello! This is not a dbpoweramp issue but a Windows explorer one. I did use dbpoweramp to edit the tags of a collection of wav files in Greek (track and album title) but they are displayed as a series of English letters and question marks in windows explorer. Out of curiosity I converted the entire album to flac and the tags are displayed just fine. It's the wav version that's messed up. Also the pop-up info window shows the correct tags, so the issue is strictly wav files in explorer. I am adding a screen shot. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

    What do you have setup in dBpoweramp Control Center > Audio Codecs > List / Options > Wave ID Tagging?

    They are the default settings:
    Tag creation (default - LIST & ID3)
    LIST chunk Position [data] [LIST]
    LIST Album Tag IPRD
    LIST Track Tag ITRK
    LIST Padding Type 'JUNK' Chunk
    LIST Padding Size 2KB
    ID3v2 Version V2.3
    ID3v2 Text Encoding ANSI

    Thanks for your reply. The registry trick didn't work

    Windows will only show the ID3 List tags in explorer, this format is limited to A-Z characters. dBpoweramp also writes a id3v2.4 tag, but very few programs will read that.

    Thanks again Spoon. I can definitely live with that minor issue. The important thing is that the correct titles are being displayed by the audio player app on Windows or anywhere else.
