Unsynchronized Tags

(This post is related to other posts about Unsynchronized Tags, e.g. http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... =6&t=38623 and http://www.mediamonkey.com/forum/viewto ... =6&t=39634, but to avoid muddle those threads...)

I don't know if this is a bug or not, but it seems odd that MediaMonkey considers the tags in some files unsynchronized.

Steps to replicate:
- download and save http://www.archive.org/download/Malcolm ... to_Bed.mp3
- Add/Re-scan the Malcolm_X_Put_Them_to_Bed.mp3 track into MediaMonkey
- go to Files to Edit/Unsychronized Tags
- notice how track shows up and the fields Title, Artist and Genre are highlighted (Title=Put Them to Bed, Artist=Malcolm X, Genre=Speech)

I assume (but may be wrong) that the values displayed in the track listing and highlighted in yellow are the values that MediaMonkey has stored in the library/database, and not the values stored/existing in the tags.

Examining the mp3 file in Windows Explorer (admittingly, not the world's greatest tag editor...), shows the values are the same as MediaMonkey displays (Title=Put Them to Bed, Artist=Malcolm X, Genre=Speech).

If the values are indeed the same, why does MM consider these tags to be unsynchronized?

You will have to check the ID3v1 and ID3v2 tags in the file. If there is a difference between those the file will also be marked as unsynchronized tags.

From what I see of that track, the tag is an ID3v1 tag so if MM is configured to save to ID3v2 then the track should appear unsynced (because the DB has several fields populated and the ID3v2 tag is not).
