Artist and album info not showing up

Post by vxl65703 » Thu Aug 15, 2013 6:33 pm

I used Media Monkey to update the missing metada from my music files, but Windows media player and Windows Media Center are not seeing any of the updates. I click on the files in explorer and select Media info and all of the data shows up. but when I look in the preview window at the bottom of explorer it only shows the song name.

Not sure how to insert a screen shot.

Thanks in advance.

Use http://imageshack.us to insert screenshots.

Also note that the programs mentioned may run of a database that requires updating (rescanning of files) before they see any changes made by other programs.

Windows explorer does not read tags for wav files.

MediaMonkey will convert WAV to FLAC files, just see Tools > Convert format

However, windows explorer does not display FLAC tags either. It only displays tags for mp3 and wma files.

No hitter, thanks the convert tool works perfectly.

Do you know if Media Monkey has the ability assign album art to Flac files. if so does it give me the ability to scan and automatically assign the album art to the respective file ?

Tools > Options > Tags & Playlists allows you to set how Artwork is saved.
