Cleaning Your Tags

From MediaMonkey Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

In some circumstances, it may be necessary to clean MP3 tags. This is the case when:

  • Tags are malformed resulting in failed attempts to write/update the tags. In this case it is generally advisable to clean ID3v1 and v2 tags.
  • The Tracks are to be played on a device that gets 'confused' by some tag types. In this case you can simply clean ID3v1 or ID3v2 tags, as required.


In these cases it is possible to remove the MP3 tags and then rewrite new tags with information contained in the Library. To do so:

  1. In the Explorer, select the Tracks whose tags you wish to clean.
  2. Click Tools > Advanced Tag Management > Clean (ID3v1 | ID3v2 | ID3v1 and v2) Tags.
  3. Important: If you've cleaned ID3v1 and v2 tags, remember to synchronize the tags after you've cleaned them.
