View Full Version : Problem with certain FLAC files. (1.1.2)
It just skips them when I try to play them and goes to the nearest song it can play. This goes for an entire album. I can't upload it though as uploading copyrighted music is illegal in my country. (Strangely enough, downloading isn't.)
Anyone have any experience with this?
PS. The album is 'With Teeth' by Nine Inch Nails.
Make sure the only thing in the tag field is FLAC (FLAC). If there is ID3v3.x (ID3v2.3 (ID3v2.3)) in the tag field remove it.
You can use Mp3tag (http://www.mp3tag.de/en/) to check the Tags.
Thank you so much, it also wouldn't play my Pink Floyd FLACs, and I think that is indeed the issue.
Now, just to be clear, I have to remove the entire tag right? And then search for a new tag (Just did it with one album using freedb, it worked). Or is there some faster way to simply remove the ID3V2.3 from the tagfield? Thanks in advance.
No, you just have to update the information in the Tag Field.
If you are using Mp3tag, Mp3tag always removes ID3v1- and ID3v2-tags from files. You can change these settings via Options > Tags > Mpeg.
First change to a directory containing supported audio-files by using the command File > Change directory...
The file view now contains all the files of this directory. If you also want to display the files of the subdirectories, please enable the option Subfolders in the change directory dialog
Now select the file(s) by using the mouse or the keyboard.
Remove the Tags of the selected files by using the command File > Remove tag or use the delete button at Mp3tag's toolbar.
You can also select multiple files after you have your options setup.
Hope this helps...
Yeah, I'd done that, I just opened my MUSIC folder on my D2, thanks. Is there any workaround for incomplete albums? For now I'm just looking up the albumID on freedb and then manually putting the songs in the right position with the albumID sequence.
(I'm talking about tagging files with FLAC tags instead of ID3v* tags, so when I've removed the old ID3v* tags and am putting new tags in.)
Thanks a lot for your help so far.
You do not want to change the tag information on the D2. Do it on your computer and then copy the files back to the D2. That way you will make sure the database on the D2 gets updated...
What tagging program are you using?
If you are using Mp3tag you can use the Tag Sources on the tool bar.
Not sure how good it is, as I rip my CD's using MediaMonkey Gold and use the tag information MM provides. Then I edit the information using Mp3tag.
I am using Mp3tag, but I can't find the button Tag Sources on the toolbar (Mind you, I am using a Dutch version of the program.) Also, the D2 seems to check for database updates every time it boots after it's been connected with the computer. (Since 3.55.) So I'm not sure if I need to copy it again, as the files I've done so far all seem to work.
I changed my Language from English to Dutch. Look for Tagbonnen on the Tool Bar.
The Hotkey is Ctrl + I
I guess that is one of the changes to 3.55, updated progress bar for the databases. I use 2.51.
