Hi all,

My question is simple: what program should I use to set the tags?
Actually, I need to change tags of audio tracks before burning them with k3b. 
I am not sure if those tags are the same that can be changed in mp3 files.
I tried to change tags through:
1) KDE Konqueror (right click on a filename -> Properties -> Meta Info);
2) tagmp3;
3) k3b (right click on an audio track -> Properties... -> Title/Performer, no 
Year/Genre tags there);
I can see all the tags in KHex editor, I can see differencies in tags when I 
change any of them using any of the aforementioned methods. But when I play 
them with KsCD, I see that some of disks were burnt with correct information 
(Performer / Album / Title), but many of them didn't have this information at 
all, so they are shown as Unknown Performer and Track 1 (2, 3, etc.).
It looks that my changes had no effect at all.
Is it a problem of setting tags? Or is it a problem of KsCD recognizing tags? 
Or is it a conflict of tag writing software versions? Or is it a problem with 
character encoding? Or is it simply a problem of my configuration?

Many thanks in advance for your advise.
