Database and ID3...
Topic: Database and ID3 tags
In most cases VDJ will not updated the ID3 tags (especially comments and key) if they have been changed since the first time VDJ loaded the track. Doing batch tag reload has little effect.
Also allow VDJ to read ID3 ratings.

Batch reload and re-adding to search DB most of the time does not update comments and keys.

This should work.....

In my case, I would change one or both of these tags in a existing VDJ folder using a utility (e.g., Tag&Rename) and then run Batch>Reload tags on the folder or on specific songs. Invariably, VDJ would miss some of the files some of the time, all of the files some of the time, and sometimes even do all of the files correctly, but there was no rhyme or reason as to when it would fail. When it did "miss" some files, those files usually showed up in the middle of the list (for some strange reason) when I viewed them in the VDJ browser. I have noticed that closing the folder in the VDJ Explorer tab, and then reopening it, sometimes refreshed the tags and made stuff update. However, this didn't always work either. I've even gone so far as removing the folder from VDJ, updating the database, moving the folder back in, updating the database again, then rerunning Batch>Reload tags, and it STILL didn't pick up the new tags!
I don't think this is an issue where nobody believes you and I - it's just that people like us haven't been able to document the problem in such a way that it is repeatable. If the folks at Atomix can't replicate it and make it happen consistently. they can't create a programming fix for it.
[My gut feeling is that the cache that VDJ uses is not being updated properly when this issue occurs, but how can I prove it...?]
See if you can duplicate the issue consistently under the same circumstances. If you can, write it up with all of the particulars and post it under the PC Version Technical Support forum. I will certainly support your effort!
FYI - I am running ver. 7.02 CUE on HP DV9620us laptop with 32-bit Windows Vista and 2 GB RAM and AMD Tl-58 1.90 GHZ chip.

One incredibly annoying alternative is to delete the files or entire folder from the database and have it re-scan it (while losing all cue points).
Its kinda like wiping your memory every time you get a headache.
(P.S. the way i do is that i copy/paste the xml file text into google docs and then change the folder name by doing find and replace. this way vdj is forced to check the database and re-learn where those tracks are and re-load them).

If im buying a 10 year old Datsun with no air conditioning i know exactly what to expect. However if i am buying a brand new Mercedes and when sometimes i turn on the AC it blows hot air in my face, it is gonna drastically reduce the quality image assigned to the brand.
VDJ is a Mercedes class software so its features should function accordingly without me having to take it to a random mechanic.

You are Not correct, the only problem here is that. when you bought it....it wasn't offered with that feature and was not available as an option eithere, so.... that doesn't make the software substandard which you are inferring in your scenario.....I'm very sure you kicked the tires before you bought it....The Point,.. you came to the right place to Request for this feature to be added....

There's no point to make it read version 8 databases since VirtualDj 8 is capable to write the data on the tags itself (either manually, or automatically based on user settings)

It would be nice to have to read the language field.
Thanks in advance! :)

When multiple songs are selected, there is an option already. On a single song I cannot find it.
