Questions / Really struggling to make sense of this
« on: October 20, 2021, 06:58:50 PM »
I am giving MusicBee a try as it was recommended by my computing magazine but so far it's hopeless :-

(1) Every one of my Dylan tracks is listed twice but every other artist is fine !
(2) When I search internet for an album picture it works but then it sticks the same picture on loads of other albums !
(3) In the midst of my Dylan albums it is putting some playlists that it seems to have invented all by itself !

Any ideas what I am doing wrong ?   Thanks for any help you can give.

I meant to say, by the way, Windows Media Player does it correctly.

There's no garbage in my files except what MB has apparently found.

I don't know how to prove it to you except like this :

One of the 3 files this link leads to was attributed to an album & artist I've never heard of.

I'm not sure which one it was now as I have corrected it by editing the tags.!Au50lNkTQJOkxG-0ayflR_iuyZ4t

As I said before, these tracks were self recorded and contain only speech (not me speaking).

Can I suggest you put these into your own MB and see what happens.

I can assure you they are virus-free.

Thanks Frankz.

I haven't actually tagged anything myself, all my tracks are either downloaded from Amazon Music (mp3 versions of cd's I've bought) or lifted directly from other Cd's I own.

My presumption is that the incorrectly attributed artists have recorded the same songs and MB has got the wrong album art from the web despite those artists not appearing anywhere in my music library.

I even have some self-recorded stuff - (i) foreign language practice (ii) my children playing instruments - some of which have been attributed to people I've never heard of.

So MB has not been very clever there !

Anyway, I hope to move the incorrectly attributed tracks to the correct artists using the Edit function.

Hello, I've just started on MB and like the look of it.

It has found all my music but has some glaring errors.

I have 36 tracks by The Spinners (English folk group now defunct, I think).

19 of them are attributed correctly - although the artist picture is of some black group I don't recognise.

The other 17 are attributed incorrectly to 15 different miscellanaous artists or groups.

That is, the artist & picture in the left hand frame are wrong although the artist is correct under Tracks in the right hand pane.

Is there any way to correct this mess ?
