V2.27 - Music Transfer does not transfer ID3 "Album Artist" tag

Postby goke313 » 10 Oct 2018 12:29

Transferred my music from iphone 6plus(ios 11) to iphone Xs Max (ios 12). About 100 gigs of music. Unfortunately compilations, soundtracks, and riddims suffer the most. Since the album artist tag is listed as VA/Various/Various artist. When I export a particular track back via 3uTools I can view the original ID3 Album Artist tag.

Pretty much not listed by album artist, instead by track artist on Music
However if I sync with iTunes or Media Monkey its listed by Album artist

So I guess my only solution is to export via 3uTools, delete music from iPhone, then sync the music using iTunes or MediaMonkey

Thanks for your feedback.
So you mean when you transfer music via 3uTools, music is transferred disorderly(Not by album artist)? Would you mind sending me the screenshot(3utools@gmail.com) so that we could improve it?

When I transferred music from iPhone 6plus(iOS 11) to XsMax(iOS 12) the files ignored the "Album Artist" ID3 tag. Soundtracks and compilation albums(i.e. Various Artist) were scattered and arranged by track artist.

I had to:
1)Export my music via 3utools from iPhone to PC
2)Delete all the music from my Xs Max
3)Transfer the exported music with another tool (mediamonkey) to my Xs Max
