Audio Tag Editor

Question

I ripped a commercial CD that I own to my computer, then tried to edit the tags with Audio Tag Editor. None of my changes were saved - the original tags are still there. Why weren't my changes saved?

Two possibilities here

1: The CD may be protected (in which case there's nothing you can do)

2: Did you try setting them in properties (right click on the file and go to properties/summary)?

 

If 2 won't work - then they're protected

Hi - thanks for replying.

 

According to the songs' Properties (right-click, select Properties) they aren't protected.

 

I am able to change the tags in Properties. (The changes are saved, and the changed tags display correctly in Audio Tag Editor.)

 

Which leads me to ask the rhetorical question: If the Audio Tag Editor can't edit tags on non-protected content...why use it?

 

Have a happy and healthy new year.

I honestly can't answer that (I always set my id3 tags manually through force of habit really) but maybe someone else will know the answer here

Here is the information from the help menu. (V9 tag editor shown).
