Problems with Auto-Tag from Web

Post by ahamade » Mon Jul 21, 2008 10:52 pm

Hi everyone, I was wondering if someone can help me with the Auto-Tag feature. If I right click on a song and tell it to Auto-Tag the search box typically has incomplete information and does not search properly.

Here is an example. I have a song from Alice in Chains called Don't Follow. Media Monkey can correctly see the Artist and Title are specified in the ID3 Tag. What I am missing is the album. So I right click the song and tell it to Auto-Tag from Web. The search box pops up with 00 and the wrong information comes up. I guess it is getting the 00 from the file name since the file name is "Alice In Chains - 00 - Don't Follow.mp3".

Can anyone help me with this issue? I would like to use Media Monkey to update the ID3 tags but having to re-type everything in the search box is making it time consuming to say the least.

Have you tried using the "Drop Down" results when you do a Auto-Tag Search?
Click on the "Down Arrow" to see more results.
Or, once you are in the Auto-tag screen, enter in the artist in the Search Field and start a new search.
