    Default Mezzmo tag reading issue

    It appears for some reason that Mezzmo does not read/interpret tags properly. On a number of pieces of music it throws them in the "Other" folder. I check on the folders on my computer and within MS MEdia Player and the tags are all fine. I can manually retag them in Mezzmo, but when I rerun the Maintain each night, it moves these files back into the "Other" folder. I have read the posts on Smart Playlists and am wondering if I should just manually create my folders to ensure accuracy, or is there some configurational thing I am missing? Also, I really don't care for all of the artist folders it creates under each genre, as some songs are there, and some just dumped into the genre folder. Should I be deselecting the "subfolder" option under Maintain? I am thinking overall I should just be doing Smart Palylist creation, but as in MS Media Player I would like to just automatically key off of the tags. I have spend manu hours tagging my music properly and it seems a bit like extra work to now create playlists when tags are already in place.

    I'll try and get it tomorrow. All I simply do is via MS Media Player, entry the genre e.g.: Rock; Soundtrack. In MS it sees both tags and the song will show in under both genres. I like to do this being some songs bridge different genres.

    Do you just need a copy of the music file?

    I am not sure why intially many were set as "other", but I learned that if I change these withing Mezzmo to be correct then just update the missing data rather than reloading all data it works fine.

    Corrections within Mezzmo are only stored within Mezzmo of course, so just keep that in mind in case you'll want to start your Library from scratch.
