Add a tag (= edit only one tag)

Post by kallculator » Thu Nov 02, 2006 12:55 pm

Maybe I'm really blind but i didnt find anything about my little problem.
I want to add batch-like to my mp3s the genre field. but when i do so it sets all tags to blank too.
how can i simply add the gender field with the other fields remaining?
i dont want to read and then write...

You need to read the existing tag(s), merge your new data into the existing tag data, and write it back.

Unfortunately you need to read the tags before writing.
