Audio Extractors/Converters by HessiJames 608 comments

I am current trying to migrate my music collection for .wma to .ogg to take advantage of ReplayGain (and switch to entirely free software). When I load my collection into SoundKonverter, it is only able to read some, but not all, of my wma tags. I find this very weird, as they were all tagged using the same program, and other programs are able to read all of the tags.

The songs for which the tags are unreadable would have to be retagged by hand after conversion. I have already done this once and am not willing to do so again (it took 30 hours).

The same tags are always unreadable (a reboot does not fix the problem), and I can't find a much of a pattern in which are readable. For some artists, all tags are readable, for others, some tags, and for yet others, no tags. (All Pink's song's tags are readable, but none of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' song's tags are readable).

Is there a known problem/limitation with reading wma tags? Does anyone know of a way to fix this?

Hope all this info wasn't too confusing, and thanks in advance, - Jan 26 2009
