When I download the 3rd version of Chatterer the Red Squirrel (https://librivox.org/the-adventures-of-chatterer-the-red-squirrel-by-thornton-w-burgess/) and attempt to load it into iTunes, files #5 and #7 appear to have their ID3 tags corrupted. The artist info is missing, and the title says "ÿfl0" for both of them.

Running those files through Checker to check ID tags, they seem to be fine and not corrupted. :hmm:

EDIT: Could someone else with iTunes try to replicate this problem?

Weird. I tried downloading it a couple of times, with the same result.
I'm hoping it's not some kind of virus on my end. Thanks for checking. I'll have to do some investigating on my end.

Okay, I figured something else out. When I download the files individually, they're fine.
It is the .zip 64kb that is giving me trouble.

he is right, downloading and extracting the 64kb file and uploading to iTunes gives me 2 albums
one by Burgess containing 1,2,3,4,6,8 All looking like this
01 - <p>Chatterer the Red Squirrel Runs for His Life,</p><p>Chatterer's Last Chance, and </p><p>Chatterer Tells Sammy Jay about Shadow the Weasel</p> 13:25 Thornton W. Burgess The Adventures of Chatterer the Red Squirrel Speech 0

the other no author 5,7
looking like this
"ÿfl0"þy0 13:54 The Adventures of Chatterer the Red Squirrel Speech 0 (had trouble copying and pasting


I suspect it might be something to do with the<p> things

I wondered about that, too, but I didn't see where those 2 files were different than the other 6. :hmm:

OK, I've removed the paragraph html tags from the catalog page, downloaded the files to fix the ID tags, and am uploading the corrected files.

EDIT: Files uploaded. They just need to derive.
