HOW TO? Update a song in the list view?

The few mp3's that had unicode in the ID3 tag were listed with the incorrect bit rate. Now that the tag is fixed, how do I get MP3boss to update that info. I tried to scan again, but it said no new song were found, and the bit rate was still listed incorrectly.

If I delete the song, then put it back it is listed correctly, after I do a scan, but that is a lot of work. Is there an easier way?

Just make sure that you have unchecked:
[ ] Add new files ONLY

on the MP3-Boss scan page.  That way it won't skip over the song.  Did the filesize change when you fixed the tag?

Not sure. I didn't notice that. But it did report the correct info.

Once I add MD5, I'm thinking about "MD5 check" as an additional option...so the file will rescan even if the filesize hasn't changed.

Good idea?

Re: HOW TO? Update a song in the list view?

v0.608 adds MD5 check as an alternative to bit-by-bit check when scanning for duplicates -- it is at least 10x faster than a bit-by-bit check.  I've made MD5 the default verification mode for duplicate checking.

To do this MP3 Scan check though, I'll need to add an MD5 field to the stored information about each mp3...so that means a table update.

Pretty soon I need to bite the bullet and add all the new fields for WMA, OGG, etc.
