I have a couple of MP3s that have duplicate fields in their ID3 tags. Let me show you what I mean:

Duplicate fields

This is causing problems with some media players. Is there a tool that can automatically fix these MP3s in batch? I'd prefer a free Windows or Linux program. I'm not afraid to work on the command line if necessary.

You did say a couple of mp3's, why not use the "remove" button? –  Moab Jan 10 '11 at 20:48
Perhaps that was a little misleading... I've got about fifty broken MP3s. –  Pieter Jan 11 '11 at 18:42

Not sure if they can do it but you can try:

TagScanner: http://download.cnet.com/TagScanner/3000-2141_4-10056506.html


Zortam http://download.cnet.com/Zortam-MP3-Media-Studio/3000-2141_4-10074058.html

I've installed TagScanner and I scanned through the description of both products on their own website. Neither supports fixing these tags in batch, sadly. –  Pieter Jan 11 '11 at 18:43

I ended up deleting the tags and re-adding them using iTunes.
