[SOLVED] FLAC to MP3: Track field changed

Post by convertmania » Sat Oct 05, 2019 4:12 pm

Hello everyone, here's my question:

Converting from FLAC to MP3 (using the provided lame.exe with mostly default settings). The FLAC files (ripped from CD, not with XRECODE) have their track no. field simply as "01", "02" etc. but the resulting MP3 files become: "01/17", "02/17" - 17 being of course the CD's total tracks.

I've searched a bit in the settings but couldn't find something. Any ideas on how to preserve the original track fields? Thank you.

Could you, please, send one of those flac files to xrecode@gmail.com? You could use https://wetransfer.com, if it's too big.

I just checked the file. It has both TRACKNUMBER and TOTALTRACKS tags present - https://imgur.com/y5cYKTx that's why the track in mp3 was written as 01/17.

Thank you. Clearing TOTALTRACKS fixed it. None of my programs showed it by default. :(

You could also configure program to discard the /TOTALTRACKS part using the "Tags replace file" - https://xrecode.com/wiki/index.php?title=Metadata

Tags replace file then should only contain those 2 rows

Code: Select all

[Track]
<ANY>=%track2%
