I’ve been using my ZOOM H4n for quick and dirty sketch recording for a good while now and I have enough files to need some sorting and weeding so I thought I can use MediaBay. It works except if I create my own tag or if I use the star ratings MediaBay won’t remember them if I rescan the folders, or else I do something wrong? Does the fact that I use MP3 files change anything? By pure luck / informed guessing I tried some testing BEFORE I tagged everything, so I’ve only used 20 minutes but I could have used 20 days for all I know just to find out MediaBay won’t remeber MP3 files. I tried to tag a handful of WAV files and they seem to stick better?
MediaBay lost track of the MP3 tags but not of the WAV tags when I removed the folders by unchecking it in the “Define Locations” lane at the left. When I scanned the location again the tags were gone.
You could argue that I shouldn’t uncheck the folders but what happen if I want to move the whole folder including subfolders not too far into the foreseeable future? It’s kind of part of the plan …
Are the tags kept in the MediaBay database file and not written into the files themselves?
Anyone knows more?
