I just tested on the latest release, and it seems to work fine.

I think your problem is based on MediaMonkey treating ";" as a reserved UI delimiter/separator.

For WMA, MediaMonkey stores the multiple entries as discrete tag entries in the WMA container. XP Explorer doesn't read them (by design: only the first entry), but Vista does... as well as Media Player 10/11. The latest Mp3tag release (2.4) will read them, too.

Do note that WMP 10/11, Vista shell, etc. also reserves the ; character for the UI. (And I don't think there is an escape method, but I'm not sure.)

Meaning you cannot reproduce the effect reported?

Read the rest of my reply. It works as I expect it... the metadata (the stuff after the semi-colons) is indeed written.

You obviously want MediaMonkey to change the UI design.

Ah. Thanks for the non-confirmation ;)
