Can't save tags


I’m a new user of Musicbrainz and I’ve been looking for a solution for more than 2 hours for my problem:

  • The “Rename files” fonction works great
  • The “Move files” fonction works great

But the “Save tags” fonction doesn’t work. Musicbrainz is supposed to be designed mainly for that no?
I hope someone had the same issue as me and would help me to resolve it.

Here is a screenshot of what happens when I press the save button:


So I thought about it and resolved my problem by myself:

Just go in the file proprieties and don’t tick “read-only”

That was simple in fact…

Hope this will help someone else

Thanks for this useful post.
It would be really helpful if MusicBrainz showed an error specifically that the the file is read only.
I was unable to access or see the message that flashed in the status bar at the foot of the screen.


You can always look at the messages in the error/debug log available in the help menu
