Subject: Re: MP3 tag empty field problem

Date: Mon, 06 Jul 2009 18:08:49 +0200

Hi,

I think this is what you are looking for:

Open the settings and go to the advanced tab. Here, find the items "only rename if all used...".

> Now I have just encountered a problem when trying to rename some MP3s. I generally structure music MP3s with filenames like: - - - . I was doing a group of six, and pre-edited the tags in a media player to have the right information to read, but then one didn't show up in the Preview column as having something to change to even tho it currently said just <Artist> - <Title>. Experimenting I found that it had no track number (because I didn't know it), while all the others did, but if I entered a false track number it would show up in the Preview as being changeable. I therefore conclude that <a style='color:darkblue' href='http://www.rlvision.com/flashren/about.asp'>Flash Renamer</a> currently refuses to change MP3 filenames where a field is required that has no entry in the tag. <br>> The thing is, I am sure this used not to be so. I have memories of renaming many MP3s with empty track numbers and often album titles. In this case there is an album title entered, but it won't change the filename to include that either - just because there is no track number entered. <br>> Can you change <a style='color:darkblue' href='http://www.rlvision.com/flashren/about.asp'>Flash Renamer</a> to allow MP3 renaming when not all identified tag fields have an entry? It would be really handy. It just means missing it out in the result e.g. <Artist> - <Album> - - <Title>. <br>> Thankyou <br>> Matthew<br> </div> <p><br> ◄ <a href="index.php">Back to Knowledge Base</a> </p> </div> </div> <!-- End Page Text ---------------------------------------------------------> </FONT> </TD> <TD><IMG SRC="../../images/spacer.gif" WIDTH=10 HEIGHT=1 BORDER=0></TD> <TD BGCOLOR="#747474"><IMG SRC="../../images/spacer.gif" WIDTH=1 HEIGHT=300 BORDER=0><BR></TD> <TD BGCOLOR="#cbcbcb" VALIGN="top"> <!--<TABLE WIDTH=119 BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=4 CELLSPACING=0>--> <!--<TABLE WIDTH=126 BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=4 CELLSPACING=0>--> <TABLE WIDTH=136 BORDER=0 CELLPADDING=4 CELLSPACING=0> <TR> <TD>  · <A HREF="../../index.php" class="menulink_big">Software</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../downloads.php" class="menulink_big">Download</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../register.php" class="menulink_big">Order</A><BR> <BR><IMG SRC="../../images/graypx.gif" WIDTH=126 HEIGHT=1 BORDER=0><BR><BR> <!-- <a class=menubold href="../../profile.php">RL Vision</a><BR>-->  <span class=menubold>RL Vision</span><BR>  · <A HREF="../../profile.php" class="menulink">About</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../contact.php" class="menulink">Contact</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../news.php" class="menulink">News</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../blog/" class="menulink">Blog</A><BR> <BR><IMG SRC="../../images/graypx.gif" WIDTH=126 HEIGHT=1 BORDER=0><BR><BR>  <span class=menubold>Shareware</span><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../flashren/about.php">Flash Renamer</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../pdfwiz/about.php">PDF Img Extract</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../exif/about.php">Exif Tag Remover</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../dupli/about.php">Dupli Find</a><BR> <BR><IMG SRC="../../images/graypx.gif" WIDTH=126 HEIGHT=1 BORDER=0><BR><BR>  <span class=menubold>Freeware</span><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../genius/about.php">Replace Genius</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../officewiz/about.php">Office Img Extract</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../notepad2/about.php">Notepad2 BE</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../photosift/about.php">PhotoSift</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../spots/about.php">Hot Spot Studio</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../snap2html/about.php">Snap2HTML</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../snap2img/about.php">Snap2IMG</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../bubblemath/about.php">Bubble Math</a><BR>  · <a class=menulink href="../../dinnerwiz/about.php">DinnerWiz</a><BR>  · <A HREF="../../misc/nsf_tool.php" class="menulink">NSF Tool</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../misc/beep.php" class="menulink">Beep.Exe</A><BR> <BR><IMG SRC="../../images/graypx.gif" WIDTH=126 HEIGHT=1 BORDER=0><BR><BR>  <span class=menubold>Misc.</span><BR> <!-- · <A HREF="../../misc/source_code.php" class="menulink">Get Source Code</A><BR>-->  · <A HREF="../../misc/changelogs.php" class="menulink">Changelogs</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../misc/titleq.php" class="menulink">TitleQ</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../artgem_about.php" class="menulink">ArtGem</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../tutorials/index.php" class="menulink">Graphics Tutorials</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../misc/windows_7_font_bug.php" class="menulink">Win7 Font Bug</A><BR>  · <A HREF="../../misc/kb/index.php" class="menulink">KB</A><BR> <br><br> <center> <font class="mini">Like my Freeware?</font> <A HREF="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_s-xclick&hosted_button_id=B4LPB59LHDTNW" class="menulink" target="_blank"> <img src="../../images/paypal_donate.gif"> </A> </center> <br> <center> <font class="mini">I'm on GitHub too!</font> <A HREF="https://github.com/rlv-dan" class="menulink" target="_blank"> <img src="../../images/github_button.png"> </A> </center> <BR> </FONT> </TD> </TR> </TABLE> </TD> </TR> <TR> <TD COLSPAN=3><IMG SRC="../../images/main_bottom.gif" WIDTH=586 HEIGHT=25 BORDER=0><BR></TD> <TD BGCOLOR="#747474"><IMG SRC="../../images/spacer.gif" WIDTH=1 HEIGHT=1 BORDER=0></TD> <TD BGCOLOR="#cbcbcb"><IMG SRC="../../images/menu_bottom.gif" WIDTH=136 HEIGHT=25 BORDER=0><BR></TD> </TR> </TABLE> </TD> </TR> </TABLE> </TD> </TR> <TR> <TD VALIGN="middle"><font color=white size=-2> © 1998-2017 RL Vision</FONT> </TD> </TD><TD> </TD> </TR> </TABLE> </CENTER> <!-- Piwik --> <script type="text/javascript"> var _paq = _paq || [];
