Changing tags (by themselves)

Post by methosan » Fri Sep 27, 2019 2:42 pm

Hi.. How do I prevent MM from changing tags by itself. The file has certain information.. Say:
Artist: John Adams, singer Bobby
Composer: James

I have changed as follows:
Artist: Adams, John
Composer: Bobby (because I don't care about composer but it's a field all players have and I want to organize by singer if needed)

But every once in a while MM reverts the tags and song name back to the way it is in the filename (embedded into file). I have too many songs to fix them all in a 3rd party tag editor.. How do I stop MM from swapping them?

Disable Infer File Properties under Tools > Options > Library. However this setting shouldn't change the tag if it's already present.
