    HELP !!!
    iTunes has the option to playback your whole MP3 collection at the
    same sound level. That looked nice, but it changed my MP3 Tags.
    Windows-Mediaplayer or WinAmp will give the next problems

    A - My added info in "Comment" is lost, it will show codes like:
    000000CF 000000F4 00000689 0000088A 00022325 00004E4E
    0000298F 00002E53 00022325 00022325
    I suppose this is the code for the sound Level.

    B - A lot of MP3 (ID3v2 Tag) info cannot be changed at all.

    I found out, that copying, the info from 3v2 Tag to 3v1 Tag and later
    back to 3v2 Tag, solves the problem. My God, I have to change a
    Is't a trick from Apple?, so we have to use iTunes for ever. Please
    does someone knows a solution to delete these codes fast, or to
    uninstall this terrible iTunes sound level program.

    Plenty of programs that claim to "help you" tend to completely **** up your
    MP3 tags.

    I've found "id3TagIt" to be one that's very good at 'untangling' what other
    tag editors screw up. Mainly it's great at ripping out the 'compressed'
    headers that make tracks unplayable in WMP10. But if a tag editor
    completely removes data there's no program that will put it back.

    Things like musicbrainz are trying to promote more consistent metadata but
    it's an uphill challenge. People don't realize they need metadata until
    they have too much data that lacks it and then they complain about it being
    too hard to go back and fix it. Well, garbage in... garbage out.
    Musicbrainz attempts to decipher what might be needed but it's a lot of

    The fact that itunes destroys data should be something to worry about.
    That's not a good thing.
