I'm currently using Windows Media Player 9 with Windows XP Home SP3 on an Acer Aspire One. On most of my music files in the comments section in properties, there would be some kind of binary code like this:
"00000000 00000210 00000B64 0000000000A0A58C 00000000 0074814F 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000"
I experimented a little bit and selected all of my music files, cleared all comments in properties, and now the artist section for most of my music would have some weird symbol, from Japanese to Wing Ding font, right next to the artist name. For example:
Every file has a different symbol right by the artist's name, which means that keeping my music files organized and together would take hours to fix. For example, instead of having a bunch of songs under Armor For Sleep, I now have:
Armor For Sleepꆆ
Armor For Sleep攀
Armor For Sleepm
Armor For Sleep褏
Armor For Sleep]
It can get pretty annoying, especially if you like to keep your files organized like I do. Is there a reason why this happens?
