Comment tag not showing in aiff files

Post by blabibo » Tue Aug 06, 2019 6:31 pm

Hi,

I bought this album from a digital seller and it is in .aiff format. Mediainfo says there's a comment in the metadata (the band's url) but when I load the files in EZCD there's no comment.

I rarely have aiff files so I don't know if this is because of the format or something else.

EZ CD Audio Converter can only recognized ID3V2 tag from AIFF files. ID3V2 tag has a standard comment field. If there are additional metadata in the AIFF file ID3V2 tag then you will see it in the advanced metadata editor window (click ... or right-click, edit metadata).

Ok, thanks. Then I guess they didn't use ID3V2 because the comment field doesn't show in the advance metadata window either. The other info are present (artist name, date, cover image etc), just not the comment field.
