MP3 tags not showing correctly

ID3 tags, which are used for MP3 files, can be of one of several different versions. EasyTAG supports ID3v2.4, ID3v2.3 and ID3v1.1. The default version in EasyTAG is ID3v2.3, which is the most compatible.

Many applications support the most recent version of the ID3 standard: ID3v2.4.

Some applications and devices may support only ID3v2.3 and ID3v1.1 tags, and a few may support only ID3v1.1 tags. If another application or a device has a problem reading tags from your files, you should try changing the ID3 tag version settings in the preferences:

  1. Select Edit ▸ Preferences

  2. Select the ID3 Tags tab

  3. In the ID3v2 section, choose the ID3v2.4 setting in the Version drop-down list to use the most recent version of ID3v2, if your application or device supports it

  4. Make sure that Write ID3v1.x tag is checked in the ID3v1 tags section, if your application or device only supports ID3v1
