    Yep !!! I mean the Track-Tag !!! I've put 2 screenshots as attachment which show no tracknumber.

    First screenshot: The Tracknumber is 0
    Second screenshot: The Tracknumbers are 100A, 100B and 100C

    I've been using TAG ID3v2.

    Thanks for your help !!!

    Tracks are treated as numbers, as this is the way we need it in our database.
    So when reading the Track tag, we check if the track tag can be converted to a number.
    When this is not the case, we use 0 as the track number.
    100A, 100B and 100C are definitely no numbers and i asume that the track with track number zero, probably contains "0 " or " 0".
    The application you used is there for testing purposes.
    In the MediaPortal implementation, you get back 0 as the track tag.

    so the only way is to correct the Tag. Characters, like you used above are definitely not supported and will always return 0.

    Thanks for your answer hwahrmann. Unfortunally the automatically email notification didn't work so I missed your answer.

    Love the new tag reader. Fixes my issues with WMA files.

    Any guestimate of when this will make it into a stable release?
