Last time I looked into the details of this, tags and .wav files could not
coexist. The wav file contains just the music data, with no place for tags.

Have you considered FLAC format? It is lossless, so you can recreate the
original wav file, bit perfect, at any time, and Flac uses ogg-tags, which
are much more flexible than early ID3 tags.



Dbpower http://www.dbpoweramp.com/dmc.htm has a means of tagging wav's which
slimserver certainly used to recognise, I stopped using this though as
slimserver does a good job at figuring things out from the directory
structure.
