Date writes to two frames??

Post by Davo »

Date appears to write to TDAT & TYER. This causes the date to be duplicated in other apps, eg Foobar
I believe this was an issue in MM4 & the solution was to add the following lines to the .INI -
[MP3Tagging]
DisableFrames=TYER;TDRC
EnableFrames=TDAT

Is their a solution for MM5?

Yes: http://oldsvr.mediamonkey.com/support/i ... year--date

Have you added this to the ini and it doesn't work for you?

I added it to the INI & saved. However when i exit MM5 then open again. The changes in the INI are gone. ?

Hi David, you should make ini file changes when the application is closed, to avoid the app overwriting your changes as it saves state during closedown.

@Barry - Tried that - Changes to the INI don't persist.

I cannot reproduce, ini setting is preserved, only the edited part could be written to different part of INI.

But this setting is wrong:

Code: Select all

[MP3Tagging]
DisableFrames=TYER;TDRC
EnableFrames=TDAT
TDAT contains only day and month, so in case you have only year, it is not written at all. TDAT is disabled by default, you should choose one frame and disable the second. E.g. if you use only year, you can disable TDRC, which contains whole timestamp, by

Code: Select all

[MP3Tagging]
DisableFrames=TDRC
In case you use also month and day, use:

Code: Select all

[MP3Tagging]
DisableFrames=TYER

@MiPi - Thanks for the clarification, I didn't realise that changes i added at the end of the INI would be written to a different part. My duplicate date problem is solved now.
