My "Rename File from Metadata" and "Rename Folder from Metadata" screens don't look anything like what is in the online or offline help files.

Mine have windows with code in them, rather than simple lines with %tags%.

I can't make any sense out of how to set these correctors for the folder and file formats I want.

Maybe its the other way then Picard has saved files using ISO-8859-1, and jaikoz is saving additional fields as UTF16. But to do this you would have had to set Preferences/Save/ID3v2 Tag/Default Text Encoding to use when writing ID3v23 Tags to UTF16 which isnt the default.

If this is set change it back to ISO-8859, but if not do the following:

Take Picard out of the equation then,
Remove all fields in Jaikoz and save,
Send me the file (so I can clearly see whats the starting point)
Then retag from Jaikoz and see what you get
And resave the file. 


Paul,

The encoding was set to the default (ISO-8859).

I removed all of the fields (using Jaikoz) and sent you the file.

I then re-tagged with Jaikoz and saved the file. No corrupt characters.

Paul,

Doing what you suggested (changing the title field in Jaikoz) corrected the character display for that field.

I follow your theory of what is happening, but what I don't understand is why the field is ok after tagging with Picard but before using Jaikoz?

Yes, in this case the song title and album title just happen to be the same. I will attempt to re-corrupt the file and send it off to you. Thanks. 


Paul, I recreated the problem... and did it on XP instead of Win7. I emailed the file and the details off to you.

Thanks,
Josh

In this case, the title should be "This Is War".
I didn't notice this thread until I had already posted mine (http://www.jthink.net/jaikozforum/posts/list/1409.page), but I wanted to add my observations:

1) This issue has been occurring for me for at least two versions back, which I guess would be 3.50? I believe I may have even seen the issue prior to that.

2) It is clear to me that Jaikoz is doing something to a file (don't call it corruption if you don't want to) that causes problems in certain situations. One of those situations is viewing the file properties in Windows 7, and another is when the file is being parsed by Orb Media Server on Windows 2003. The files are fine before Jaikoz, cause Orb to crash after Jaikoz, and work fine again after I remove the "bad" characters.

3) It doesn't affect all files.

4) I had files showing these "bad" characters that were edited with Jaikoz on Windows Vista. I couldn't actually see what the corruption was, however, until I looked at the file properties with Windows 7.
Having a strange issue that I tracked down to "corrupt" characters in the "title" field after updating a file with Jaikoz.

I began having problems with Orb Media Server hanging on specific MP3 files. When I investigated these files, I found that the "Title" field (only when viewed via the file properties of Windows Explorer) showed bogus characters. If I get rid of these bogus characters, the hang problem in Orb goes away.

The interesting thing is that when viewing the file's metadata via Jaikoz or MediaInfo, I don't see any of these "corrupt" characters in any of the fields. Any ideas?

Here's a screenshot of one of the problem files (the title field was fine before updating w/ Jaikoz).



I'm using v 3.6.0, but this has been occurring for a few versions now (2 or 3?). I'm on Windows 7 x64.
