Zach B Posted March 26 Share Posted March 26 Hello! I have recently installed Poweramp, full version, and have been using it in tandem with Musicbee. It has worked great overall so far, very impressed, but there are a few stinkers in my collection that won't read right: I'm on Android 10, OneUI 2.5, Galaxy S9 Using a 512gb Samsung Micro SDXC card With Windows 10 and the most recent version of Musicbee On Poweramp 956 (Music is saved to "Music" on the root of my SD) The tags are verified, they work perfect in Samsung Music and other players, but in Poweramp they have varying degrees of issues. Some read with no album art, some have album art, all of them have missing track info (track number). See below for an example of one with album art: Screenshots from PA: Note the missing track number and album artist. Also worth noting it says there is No Embedded Album Art, so it's just pulling that from the folder instead of reading the tag correctly. Same song in Samsung Music: Album artist and track number read fine! So strange. Basically, I have tried multiple times and multiple methods of copying (USB wired sync, wifi sync, sync straight to the SD card, manual drag and drop; reinstalling PA and trying full rescans every time), and the files are still not agreeing with PA for whatever reason. Also worth noting, all the albums I am having this issue with ARE pretty old (circa 2015 or 2016) and most of them are CDs I ripped straight to iTunes myself back then, but I verified they have the ID3v2.3 tags, so I'm not sure how their age/original tags may impact things. I went and retagged them in Musicbee multiple times already, even trying to change the album name and album artist just in case, but no dice. Making changes this way fixed maybe five or so other old albums, but there are about ten remaining that are giving me the issues listed above. I DO have a setting checked in Musicbee that says "Also create ID3v1 tags", so maybe I need to uncheck that? Might those tags conflict and confuse PA? Any other thoughts on how to get PA to read these correctly? Should I just try and download new MP3 copies of all these albums, retag them from scratch? Thank you for the help!
