MP3erPro,

The Advanced ripper in Creator 2012 write audio tags to M4A files when it rips from CD. However Windows doesn't seem to read M4A tags.

Here are some MP3 and M4A files I ripped with C2012 as seen by Windows. See the difference between the types?

Here are the same files viewed with my tagscanner. See that there is metadata embedded in the M4A files?

Brendon



Edit: Only the Advanced (Roxio) ripper makes M4A files. The simple (Sonic) ripper doesn't, sorry.

I need to share an apology with the OP.

When I first looked at both the Ripper and Advanced Ripper I didn't see the m4a format as available.

After being questioned I went back and looked and I was wrong.m4a is an available format.
Don't know how I missed seeing it the first time but SORRY.

The Advanced ripper doesn't seem to insert track numbers in the M4A tags. Since m4a is an iTunes filetype you might have to add track number manually if you want it displayed.

What tag scanner do you use?

Riff54 was actually quoting from post #4 Steve, although the IPBoard software hasn't made that obvious. [Be kind to the eye :)]

Riff, I was using this little Freeware scanner in that screenshot. It seems very good.

If you do an Internet search for "tag scanner serkov" you should get at least a page of download sites and information.

Thanks Brendon. When you said "tagscanner" in your post, you literally meant "Tagscanner."  I located the scanner by Serkov.  I downloaded it today and spent a little time with it.  I'm going to need more time with that one, lol!
