I installed 6.5 over 6.22 today and since doing a full rescan - have noticed that it is picking up genre data that is not in either the id3v1 or id3v2 tags. I did an uninstall and re-installed in new directory. Same behaviour. Also noticed that it is also seeing album data that is not in tag. For example - have made cd 1 and cd 2 albums into single album but today it is seeing cd1 and cd2 and counting as 2 albums. Was not like this under 6.22. Have checked tags and cannot find the genre or album data it is finding. Is there an old database that it could be reading from?

Got me beat.....any suggestions?

Even if you think your id3v1 tags were correct - get rid of them. This
should fix the issue.

Thanks for suggestion Michael. Tried it on a couple of the affected albums but hasn't changed anything. It's really weird.... Seems that there is some historic file information that is being picked up from somewhere but I haven't been able to find the source.

Regards,
Mike

ok - I've found the problem but haven't fixed it yet. When I look at the tags using Tag & Rename - everything looks fine. However, when I use Foobar 2000 and look at the file properties - I can see another genre but not the one that I can see with Tag & Rename. Slimserver is picking up both the genre in the Foobar metadata and the id3v2 tags I entered in Tag & Rename. I can go through each album and fix them in Foobar but there must be an easier way......

Just make sure you have id3v2 tags, and only these. The other day there
was someone whose tags were missing alltogether. Turned out they were
stored as WMA tags.
