For some reason track number is tagged in the following format:tracknumber/totaltracks, e.g. 5/12How can I have Picard tag the track number only?
Try unsetting total tracks in your script:
The reason is, that the tagging format in question (I think it is only ID3 and Ape tags) expects the total tracks data to be written that way Other tagging formats do it differently.
I don't understand what yuou mean by tagging format. MP3Tag doesn't do it with ID3.In any case your suggestion worked.Thank you
If MP3Tag cannot write the total number of tracks that's an issue of MP3Tag, but the ID3 specification says this can be done in the format Picard does.
Just to not bad mouth MP3Tag, I re-checked and it can do it, but it is not the default
