I just had to register and post this is incredibly annoying problem I have had since v5.2.

Get a large MP3 (50+Mb) (preferably with no tags already saved). If it does already have them, clear the tags and save. Then paste a lot of info (like a tracklisting) into the ID3v2 comment box and fill in the rest of the tags as normal then save again. Crashes almost every time. Sometimes it still writes correctly, but crashes anyway.


I'm not sure if this works for smaller MP3's, as I have never needed to do the same operation with them.

Win XP64 with latest updates
AMD 3700+ San Diego
Asus A8N SLI SE (using onboard sound)
DirectX 9.0c
Just wondering if anyone else still has this problem or if it's being looked in to? I suffer with it on a daily basis. It does also happen with smaller MP3 files - I even had it happen on a 10 meg file.

This error message is also sometimes displayed...
