It might be an encoding error. I have a wide range of music in my collection including music with tags in Greek, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Arabic and Hebrew. Although I tend to amend titles in their native tongues with Roman type, as I can't actually read any of these except for Russian and Japanese, I like the "authenticity of having the correct titles, etc.

Often, I'll find that if I'm using music that someone else has tagged (because I'm too lazy to personally digitize my vinyl collection) there will often be issues with the tags if they were initially tagged using a localized OS.

I believe the phrase for this is "Mojibake".

Anyway, if that's the issue and you need to convert them to the correct Hebrew unicode, use the following steps:

  1. Go to "Actions"
  2. Create a new Action
  3. New Action Step of "Convert codepage"
  4. Field "_TAG"
  5. Select the appropriate codepage, in your case Hebrew 1255
  6. Save and then apply to the works with which you have issues.


This "ought" to solve the problem. If it doesn't there's something more (or at least different) at work.

Mallthus,

Which TAG Format do you use ?

ID3V2.3 UTF-16 or ID3v2.3 ISO-8859-1 or .....
