Not sure if this is the right place to throw this out, but this is where I'll start.
Have recently been having issues with song tags, when importing songs into a media library. Songs will take on the tag information of another song, or I will have a string of songs all take on the same (and all wrong) title.
This week, I was building a media laptop for my brother, and needed a light-weight distro, so I used TinyMe, an offshoot of PCLinuxOS. I installed Songbird, and had the above issue. Uninstalled Songbird, and installed Amarok. Same issue again. I thought that this was related to only TinyMe. Until last night.
Last night, I went to burn a cd on my LM5 Xfce desktop, using Brasero, and as I tried to add files to the song list, numerous song titles changed. I burned cd's a couple of weeks ago, and had no such problems.
I'm fairly new to Linux, and still fumbling my way around.
Being that the problem lies on at least two different distros, three different media programs, and two different computers, is there something out in the repositories that has changed recently, to create this problem? I've done some looking for an answer, but if the answer's out there, my search-fu is weak on this one. Any answers, or ideas on where to look next, would be greatly appreciated. Having to individually go through, and edit some 400 tags, did NOT make for a fun afternoon.
