    It looks like you already posted over in the MP3Tag forums and have an answer from MotleyG for how to just get the MP3 files from your library.

    I tested this method and it works fine.

    EDIT: I see that you're on a Mac. Didn't know it was unable to do a specific type search like "*.mp3" like can be done in Windows File Explorer.

    Yes, I'm on macOS. macOS maps the nas drive over SMB (smb://hostname//foldername), as far as I can tell smb mapped drives are not indexed, or searchable in macOS. I need to find a way to index smb network shares, or dust off an old windows laptop I have and try that.

    Do you see why I'm asking now if LMS can just ignore id3v1; kicking that can down the road, lol.

    I might also blanket remove mp3's from LMS, via "File Types"->"Disabled Audio File Extensions", and be done with this chapter of my life lol. My mp3's are very old files from god knows where (even amazon mp3 purchases have id3v1 tags!); over the last couple of years, with cheap, ample storage options, I've been much more diligent by going flac/mp3tag/dbpoweramp.

    agree. And once you load your music folder into mp3tag you can filter (I recall at bottom of screen) for mp3. In options, tag settings, select read from ID3v1 and ID3v2, and APE. Then set WRITE to only ID3v2.3. And DELETE to all but ID3v2.3.

    back to sorted mp3 files, select them all, then select the big red X in the menu along the top.

    I have no problem removing the id3v1 tags in mp3tag, the issue is how to efficiently find and load mp3's in a sea of other *networked* flac/mp4/mp3. Unfortunately, there's no easy "just search for mp3" with an smb mapped share in macos. Still sleuthing/googling for a good solution to this, and will report back if I find it.

    Can you map the NAS as a network drive. If so it is easy to point mp3tag at that mapped drive, filter on mp3, then done, all with a couple of mouse clicks.

    Yes, the drive is mapped (via SMB), and as far as I know is not indexed (or searchable) in this manner on macos. I'll try my windows computer this weekend, SMB is a microsoft thing, so perhaps Win 10 can search for *.mp3 on mapped/network drives.

    The networked synology NAS I use for music storage also has AFP/NFS services, but I settled on SMB as that is (most) widely supported by Windows/Mac/Linux (minus file indexing on macOS).

    Yes it can.

    Also in MP3Tag you can do this from View -> filter -> then type ".mp3" (without quotes) and it should filter out all but the MP3 files.

    Aha, it is possible to find/filter just mp3's in both macos finder, and mp3tag.

    In mp3tag, File->Open, select the folder to search, and in the search box use "kind:mp3", which is the macos finder keyword for finding only the mp3 files! It's possible, but when I do this, my macbook fans spin up , mp3tag stalls, and I get the macos spinning balloon ball of stalled death, too many mp3's! At least it's possible, however.

    Actually, this times out in mp3tag (must have a built-in max timer to allow searches), so it fails from within mp3tag. In macos's finder, however, the search does produce only mp3's, it takes forever, and apparently 16GB of RAM is not enough to drag/drop the results into mp3tag.

    For me, finder produces 5541 mp3's.

    odd. In windows In the past Iĺve loaded up 50,000 mp3 files and done a batch edit with a 16 GB machine. 5541 files should be nothing for mp3tag. But perhaps doing all this across your internal network is the problem.
