Exporting ID3 Tag-Information from FM10 to MP3-files with AppleScript correctly.Herethemoderator
I am not sure, if I understand the post
correctly. The moderator TSGal writes, that data are imported for example of the track names from the field "TrackName".
Assuming that this refers to the very MP3-file, I wonder, if it was possible to do the revers. I have a collection of some 9000 titles from my music cassettes with all information available in a FM-Database (title, album, artist, typ of music). So far I have not seen any function in my FM Pro 10 that appears like a solution. As an other option I could imagine, to have an AppleScript do the job. Yet I am not sure, how to address the individual ID3 Tags. For example "TrackName" as term used in the other posting? Also, I understand, that the type of music is not stored as text but as code number (1-79?). Has anybody an idea where to get a translation table from?
As final result I would see a script like this
For 1 to 9000
select FM10-record # xxx
take from FM10 the information on Title, artist, type of music, tracknumber ...
search in folder ... on drive ... for file withe the name "titleXXX.mp3"
set ID3-tag "TrackName" to "titleXXX"
set ID3-tag "Artist" to "ArtistYYY"
......... and so on
