I’ve mistakenly being storing sub-genres as several custom tags in MBs database and as I’ve no started to use some other software that can handle this info I really want to transfer the sub-genres (contained in the custom tags) so that they feature in individual tracks. That’s to say, rather than forming part of MBs database I would like the sub-genres to be contained, as metadata, in my music files.
I’ve read various threads about creating custom tags, but couldn’t find anything about this particular issue.
I had concluded that it would just be a matter of creating a ‘new Custom Tag Definition’ and then changing ‘the save to music file as tag’, from ‘Save to MusicBee Database Only’ to the appropriate custom tag; and while this caused my collection to be rescanned, the process failed, with only a very small number of custom tags being converted across to the music files. Fortunately, on that occasion I had backed up MB so nothing was lost, though I would now like to have another go at this, and this time get it right. Has anybody any pointers? Am I missing something?
