#169 "Write tags to disk when edited" doesn't


So I have an iPod chock full of MP3s. I have edited a bunch of metadata. But even after saving changes, when I use a tool to look at the ID3 tags on the MP3s on the iPod -- such as mid3v2 or id3v2 -- gtkpod hasn't updated them at all. My iPod *IS* my music repo; I see no need to keep a copy of everything locally, so editing local tags doesn't help me.

I only discovered this behavior recently after having used gtkpod for some time, and it has made it really difficult to have other tools scan my iPod's music.

I have both "Mass-modify tags when multiple tracks are selected" and "Write tags to disk when edited" checked. Use legacy format is NOT checked. This is gtkpod 0.99.14 with libgpod 0.7.0.

    Have you built everything yourself? If so, have you received any warnings?
    Do you use a prepackaged version?
    Does this happen in all the files? Does it happen when you add tags to "clean" files?

    The packages from from Debian.

    It does happen with all files.

    I don't know what you mean by a "clean" file.

    A clean file is a file that has no tags.
    I have verified that this indeed happens.
    This is one of the problems in the id3 library we're using, I'm in the process of migrating to a different one.
    Recommendations are welcome, but in the gtkpod-devel list and not here...

    Can you try the SVN branch named taglib?
