Update/Save Won't Work


Posted Jul 16, 2010, 10:27 pm
After a trial period with everything working fine, I just bought ID3 Editor v.1.15.12 (2927).

Now the program will not update or save after making changes to the data.

When I click the update button - there's a quick screen flash.
When I hit command save or save from the menu - same thing.

When I try to close the edit window, a dialog window comes up saying something like, "Do you want to save changes . . .If not your changes will be lost."

Click yes, save - same quick flash and then it loops back to the same window - "Do you want to save changes . . . etc."

The only way to exit the edit window is to click "Don't Save"

This behavior is new. The previous trial version worked fine.

I used it quite a bit so I'm pretty familiar with the program, so I feel it's unlikely the problem is operator error (but ya never know.)

Any clues? Fixes?

I'd really like to use this excellent program, especially now that I've bought it.

Thanks for any help,

If you remove the tag, update, then add the information and update again (preferably on a copy of the track), does it then save as expected?

I am also having the same problem with ID3 Editor versions 1.15.26 and 1.15.27 on a 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro with 2 GB of RAM running Mac OS X 10.4.11. But I noticed it only seems to happen when I try to change anything in the Lyrics panel. I can make all other tag changes and save OK. Even when I delete the whole Lyrics panel, I still can't save it. The same quick screen flash happens. I didn't have any problems with version 1.10.7, but I upgraded to be able to put ISRC codes in the ID3 tags. Can you help?

Thank you.

Do you have the problem only when you change the lyrics, or also when other fields are changed at the same time as the lyrics?

Is the V2 tag check box enabled when the lyrics fail to save?

Thanks for the quick reply!

Both the V1 and V2 Enable Tag boxes are checked.

I've only noticed the problem when changing or deleting anything in the Lyrics panel. All other changes seem to save fine without a lyrics change.

Now I just noticed that if I make another tag change after the lyrics change, then it saves. What a surprise. I guess that is a workaround that I can put up with to get it to work. Maybe your next update will take care of this problem. And I'm thinking of updating to Mac OS X 10.5, that might help too.

Thanks for asking about making other changes at the same time as a lyrics change.
