    Finding all tracks with nothing intheir "Album" mp3 tag

    Jeff,

    Much thanks!!! It takes the LMS process well over an hour to run through my
    collection. I could have let mp3tag attempt to load the entire thing but
    was obviously hesitating ... I could find nothing on mp3tag's website about
    any limitations it might have.

    I'll set it up to load the whole thing tonight when I get home from a
    daytrip to Chicago. I use mp3tag all the time. But usually my left-clicking
    on a folder to load the tracks in it to edit track tags. So I'll be happy
    to use it going forward.

    Best regards!!

    Guy

    d6jg, Thanks for the recommendation. Doesn't fix the current problem, but
    useful for the future.

    Finding all tracks with nothing intheir "Album" mp3 tag

    Thanks everyone ... mp3tag is the ticket. I'd be using it in any case to
    do the tag editing. Note it took MUCH longer than 10 minutes to load my
    collection, but load it did and I've exported the lists I wanted (to
    have them).

    Now for the really hard part -- the actual tag editing :-/

    Regards!

    Finding all tracks with nothing intheir "Album" mp3 tag

    Well, I tried using phpLiteAdmin, supposedly a SQLite version of
    phpSQLAdmin, but it does not 'recognize' library.db as a SQLite db. I
    even copied the entire ./Cache folder and nothing doing.

    But I'm good now -- using mp3tag is the way to go.

    Thanks.

    In case you need to load the full library into mp3tag more often, you can advise mp3tag to create its own db for caching the tags to speedup subsequent loading. See https://help.mp3tag.de/options_library.html

    I have over 70K tracks (about 50:50 mp3:FLAC) and mp3tag loads the whole lib no problem. I deliberately bought a 2TB Samsung QVO-series SSD for my music files, since it used to take over an hour to load up mp3tag with a spinning HD. With the SSD, it all loads in 5-6 minutes. If you tag often and heavily, at today's prices an SSD is not as overkill as it once was

    Finding all tracks with nothing intheir "Album" mp3 tag

    I have my library on a NAS with "normal" mirrored 4Tb drives. It takes
    mp3tag about 45 minutes to load the whole set. But I've added the NAS
    mounted locally to mp3tag's Library option so that won't be a problem later.

    I confess I was skeptical (and mp3tag did die once), but I made great
    progress last night in fixing missing titles, genres, and albums. It
    really is a terrific tool. Now I've figured out how the "filter" option
    works it was a pleasure to us (and the forum is active and extensive,
    which is also a plus).

    Thanks.
