  1. AIFF music files not showing details in File Explorer but MP3 does


    Hello. I have Windows 10 Version 1709 (build 16299.248) and I recently learned that MP3 is a lossy format so I started re-encoding in AIFF but I noticed that in the music folder it only shows the track name. It's indirectly sorted by track order by putting a two digit number at the beginning of the song title (eg. 01 first track 02 second track) but it isn't showing the track number artist name, album name or any of that other information.
    I contacted Windows support and they did call me back and on the telephone they told me to contact Apple support, and that it may be a compatibility issue. So, I told themI posted this on their boards and the poster also stated that it's a compatibility issue. I don't doubt that this is the case but is there something that I missed? I'm including two screenshots. One shows file explorer with an MP3 album and another with the files in AIFF. I did use MP3Tag and opened up an MP3 and it was using Id3Tag v2.3 where my AIFF's are using v2.2. But I would think that they'd be downward compatible.

  2. Help with USB Flash Drive reformat issue or playing .aiff files on Windows 10

    iTunes will not only play .aiff files but will convert them to mp3 which Windows Media Player does recognize and can play.

  3. mp4 music files>right tagging

    Hi,

    Mp4 files are not music files. They are video files. Music files are recognised by .mp3, aac etc.

    Converting music files mostly erases all the details. Do not convert them.

    Use only mp3 files for all music details like album, artist...

    You can also change the details of mp3 files from your computer using Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7 by opening the properties of the MP3 file and adding required info in details tab.

    Hope this helps you.

    AIFF music files not showing details in File Explorer but MP3 does

    Hi, I managed to find an aif file (not aiff) to download and my Details pane shows

    Maybe you could upload an aiff file?

    Note: flac is not lossy.. also the perceived loss with mp3's can be noticeably different dependent on parameters such as the bit rate. At 320kb/s you may well not notice the loss.. and it depends on your speakers and hearing of course.

  5. Wow. I didn't know there was a difference between AIF and AIFF. I assumed that AIF was Windows' abbreviation (the same as HTML for MacIntosh is abbreviated .HTM for Windows). ITunes doesn't offer AIF as a format.

    I did try to upload one of my AIFF files but it told me "invalid file"

    When I click on the file properties they all read as .AIF even though iTunes doesn't offer that. I selected AIFF and Windows shortened it.

    Also, I did in fact want to import as FLAC, but iTunes doesn't offer that. All my MP3's are at 320Kbps (or is it 320KBps?), so is it even really worth this headache to re-encode? I noticed the file size for AIFF is considerably larger indicating that there isn't as much compression so I once again assume that it's better audio quality. So, if I can't get this straightened out, what do you recommend to encode in FLAC format?

    This attached image shows the options that iTunes gives me.

    You'd need to zip the AIFF file for site compatibility to upload it.. and it may be too big, in which case via some upload site and post a link.

    Unfortunately when I convert an AIFF to ZIP and I upload it doesn't add to my upload file manager. But that's OK. You guys found me a solution especially that article about the Apple compression. I think that's going to be my ticket. Thanks guys!
