Mp3tag Version: 246

Hi there,

I have installed mp3tag to my new pc which is running windows 7 64bit.

When scanning a directory of mp3-files, the process hangs after roundabout 800 files (stops counting) and never comes to an end.

Is there anything special to be done with win7.64? I have also tried to start as administrator but no help.

Has anyone found why is this happening?

I have Win 7 64b and the mp3tag don't even starts, hangs forever on start up.. Killing it in process manager it seems a bit diffucult too, because it still stays forever there.

Please fix the problem with mp3tag, I really miss using it.

... think that intercepting a kill signal is not a good ideia...

How do you know the developers have done that?
Have you investigated your environment? W7 ist particularly autistic during network access and harddisk operations. On the same line it allows more or less everyone to access files - esp. if WMP is involved.
Marauding access rights, slow network connections, external drives with a mind of their own... so many possibilities to slow down the system.
Could you check, if the "hanging" also occurs if you do not open MP3tag via the Explorer context menu but open the folders/files from within MP3tag (and its functions to access the filesystem)?
On several occasions modifying ones workflow solved the problem.

I'm having a similar performance issue here: Win7 x64, DELL Vostro laptop, 20 months in use.
Have been using several progressive versions of mp3tag on this machine without problems.
Only the past few days (no Windows update took place, no new 3rd party software installed) the writing of mp3 file tag info started acting very strange. Track numbers and song titles would suddenly take forever to write to the file, freezing the app and/or concluding with an exception message "Failed/Cannot write to file <...>.mp3".

I tried starting mp3tag from the desktop shortcut instead of using the context menu, this "relieves" the situation for a short while but after a handful of tagging operation the misery starts again.

I tried disabling the virus scanner (McAfee) but this also made no difference.

Help...! My productivity at tagging files dropped to near zero!
