    LMS tagging problem

    Hi, bought an album in FLAC format and noticed that although the tags read fine in MP3tag, when scanned by LMS all the tracks have the same "title" tag (the last track on the album).

    Tried editing and deleting all the tags but LMS still uses the title of the last track as the title for all the tracks. This is not visible in any other program (foobar2000, dbPoweramp, MP3tag or Tag&rename). Have run several complete scans, deleted the cache, deleted logs, but all the tracks continue to have the same title on this album.

    Where could it be getting this tag from seeing as I have deleted them all and added them back manually? V frustrating!

    Yes, nothing there. I gound a reference somewhere to an app that kills all tags on a music file. Think I may have to go down that route.

    I wouldn't do this. IIRC if there are no tags then LMS tries guessing them.
    I'd rather try several steps like
    - do a full scan
    - removing the album completely, let LMS do a scan for changes, add the album back, do another scan for changes
    - delete just the last track from the album and do the scanning like above

    BTW, is there a .cue file for the album or just the flac files?

    Oh I would add the tags back again using mp3tag afterwards, but I would be starting with a clean sheet with, hopefully, the rogue tag killed.

    Done lots of rescans - no joy. Removed and readded, converted FLAC to mp3, you name it I've tried it. Kill all tags and manually rewrite them is about the only thing I haven't tried.

    No cue file, just the FLACs.

    In MP3 tag check that the flac files don't have both flac tags ( vorbis comments ) and id3v tags in the flac files .
    In that case remove the id3v tags .

    A brute force aproach would be to convert them to wav with something that don't support tags and then convert them back to flac

    A shot in the dark, but any chance the TitleSort tag is incorrect?

    What do you get when you remove the last track of that album and do a rescan?

    What tags do you have in the flac files of this album?

    You mentioned before that there's nothing in the 'extended tags' of mp3tag. Maybe this is a misunderstanding as the 'extended tags' view of mp3tag is a list of all the tags of the selected files (shortcut is ALT+T), so definitely there should be anything.

    And btw, you don't need a different tool to remove tags from files. Mp3tag can do this as well.
