You haven't specified what file type. Regardless I'd advise you to share this particular problem track with MM support.

Are you working in the My Computer or one of the library nodes?

MediaMonkey can read them, but doesn't write them.

Don't know about MusicBee but MP3Tag allows for ID3.2.4 tags. I only ever use 3.2.3 because AFAIK MM4 can't use 3.2.4 tags, so I'm not sure what MM4 does if there are 3.2.4 tags in an MP3 or other ID3-using file type.

Update: I was able to get MM to reflect the changes by Synchronizing the files (showing the incorrect tags) in MediaMonkey first, and then Synchronizing the same files (showing the correct tags) in MusicBee. Hope that makes sense.

I believe that MediaMonkey won't replace values with empty ones on rescan. However removing the track from the Library and rescanning the file in should show it with the empty tag.

Hey, I just wanted to say I'm having the same issue, except I tagged the files using MusicBee (not Mp3Tag). Windows Explorer, Windows Media Player, Tag&Rename and iTunes reflect the updated tags, but MediaMonkey does not for some reason. Tried rescanning the Music folder, but to no avail. Tags are still the incorrect old ones, both in the My Computer node and the Music node. Any help would be much appreciated.

Positively no misspellings in the filename. I've checked and re-checked.

MP3Tag shows everything correct.
I'm new to MM & seems like I'm having an identical issue. Updated tags in MP3tag will not show in MM. I have read through this post and tried removing and re-adding the files - no luck. Any suggestions for this newbie? Thanks!

1) Auto-Tag from Filename and Auto-Organize Files both under the Tools menu.

2) This is probably the reading of your Now Playing files which is done from the files tags themselves (and thus slow).

I definitely tried that. That's what so weird. I'll delete the files as well as the whole artist folder in the tree, but when I re-add the files, an artist node with the old, misspelled name reappears. Like the Reanimator. The old misspelled artist name just won't go away.

What about re-building or optimizing the database? I haven't tried those because I'm afraid they'll do some sort of re-organization that I don't want, such as making new folders or whatever, like iTunes will do if you let it control your folders, which I don't want.

(1) I used too - up to the moment I tried tagging with MM. MM is as good as MP3Tag :D

But - using a database, MM is faster :)

(2) But keep in mind - changing tags with MP3Tag you have to wait until MM is updating his database.
(1) Does MM have a way to automate conversion from filename to tag, or tag to tag? I use those functions constantly.

(2) The updating takes maybe 30 seconds when MM starts. I don't have real-time updating turned on. I guess I usually close then re-open MM if I'm tagging files already in it.
