Rainbow troubleshooting incorrect date values problem
Hello!

I use the holidays to polish my music collection and trying to sort out the little problems which still might exist.

I keep getting error-messages like this:
Code:
Warning: truncating incorrect value for DATE tag 2010-28-12 in file id3v23/01-chelsea_wolfe_-_advice_and_vices-homely.mp3

Researching the problem, I found that the format for this DATE tag is YYYY-MM-DD. According to above error-message, it seems that the metadata of my MP3 is formatted in a wrong way, YYYY-DD-MM instead.

The thing is that in my tagging-program (Musicbrainz Picard), it is shown correctly. There, in the the GUI, it shows 2015-09-25. So why the confusion? I did a lot of testing, after which I find that when I save ID3-Tags in version 2.4 the problem disappears, but when I use version 2.3, this problem arises.

I also did tests with the command-line tool id3v2, which shows me the following output for the file above:

Code:
root@services_2:/usr/local/share/minimserver # id3v2 -l /media/musik/tagging/id3v23/01-chelsea_wolfe_-_advice_and_vices-homely.mp3

/media/musik/tagging/id3v23/01-chelsea_wolfe_-_advice_and_vices-homely.mp3: No ID3v1 tag

In my research, I also found this thread on this forum, which points to the "TDAT"-field, which contains 2812 in the example above. As far as I understand the thread, this should be handled correctly by MinimServer.

I am lost now whether this is a problem of my tagger or MinimServer, or how I can fix this. I'd like to keep v2.3 over v2.4, as some devices of mine can't handle v2.4. Any help appreciated.

Thanks,
airflow

RE: troubleshooting incorrect date values problem
Thanks very much for letting me know about this!

I have checked the code in MinimServer that handles the TDAT tag. The earlier fix for the TDAT bug is incomplete and as a result you will get this problem if the TDAT tag appears before the TYER tag but not if the TYER tag appears before the TDAT tag. In the file you have posted, the TDAT tag appears before the TYER tag and this is why you are getting the problem with this file.

I am sorry that you had to put so much effort into tracking down the cause of the problem. I will fix it in the next MinimServer update.

This fix is now available in MinimServer update 76.

Are you sure this is the same problem that the OP reported?

Is there a TDAT frame in this file? If so, what value does it contain?

I'm not sure. I guess that's another problem.

The TDAT frame requires the date to be in DDMM format. If the date has been stored as MMDD, you will get the problem you are seeing.

OK. How can I see the TDAT frame in my file? (OS Win XP).

I use a hex editor for this. Alternatively, you can view the tagged data using a tagging program.

RE: troubleshooting incorrect date values problem
I'm getting a lot of TDAT warnings as well. I don't understand what's wrong, as both the day and month are not higher than 12 in a lot of cases. For example;

Code:
...
Warning: ID3v2 TDAT frame has incorrect value '2015-04-05' at offset 151 in file Series/Speicher/[komex_85]-patrice_bäumel-speicher_85_(2015)/01 Patrice Bäumel - Lowrider.mp3 (length 17215415)
Warning: ID3v2 TDAT frame has incorrect value '2015-04-05' at offset 151 in file Series/Speicher/[komex_85]-patrice_bäumel-speicher_85_(2015)/02 Patrice Bäumel - The Vanishing.mp3 (length 20898008)
...

What's wrong with these tags?
