Hi, N_C_H_josh. Yes, under Automatic Tag Writing, the option for "Copy track information from the CD database into the output file audio tags" is indeed selected. I never concerned myself with that option because I haven't been dealing with CD's when using Switch. So I went ahead and un-checked that option, and then converted 2 other WMA files to mp3 files, while leaving the Genre field blank. Unfortunately, "(148)" is still showing up in the Genre field in the final mp3 files.
After the Switch Sound Format Converter completes the conversion of WMA files to mp3 files, I usually don’t input any tag into the Genre field. Nevertheless, when I don’t input a tag and when I later view the converted files detail using Windows Explorer, the Genre field will show “(148)”. What does (148) mean? How can I prevent Switch from automatically putting this “(148)” tag into the Genre field when I want the field to be blank? Thanks.
