Scanning ID2 before ID1

It appears that MP3 Boss is scannning ID3v1 and ignoring ID3v2 tags. For example if the genre field in ID3v2 is 'World' and the ID3v1 tag is blank then MP3 Boss will leave the genre field blank in the list view.

Re: Scanning ID2 before ID1

Check your Configuration/Main tab -- there is a checkbox "Ignore ID3v2 tag information"

It is off by default, but some people like it because sometimes there is a lot of junky ID3v2 tag information out there...

Re: Scanning ID2 before ID1

"Ignore ID3v2 tag information" is unchecked.
and
"ID3v2 information overrides Directory Organization" is checked.

Re: Scanning ID2 before ID1

Could you send me a file that shows the problem?

I think the problem might be that Genre is limited to a pretty limited set of categories (defined in ID3v1, with some additional items defined by Winamp).  The ID3v1 tag requires that the Genre be linked as a number (0-255) that defines the category.

Re: Scanning ID2 before ID1

The year is shown in detail view of the ID3v2A tab -- I'll make sure to copy the year from the ID3v2 tag if the ID3v1 year is empty.

The ID3v2A tab also shows the content type as:
Club/Dance Contemporary R&B Dance-Pop Hip-Hop Pop

Although the complete field is:
Club/Dance Contemporary R&B Dance-Pop Hip-Hop Pop R&B R&B/Soul Soul/R & B Soul/Reggae/Rhythm & Blues Urban

There really isn't any good way for me to map this into one of the available genre fields.  How about I set the Genre=12 (Other)? 

Other Suggestions?
