Can’t find anyway this (crutial for foreigners) information ! I’m planning to buy a Clip + but would like to know it BEFORE !!!
For “intrepid testers”, if none can answer , here are the basics discreminating tests :
- V 1 is old and mostly replaced by V.2, exept for veeeeeeeeery old software (can be identified by filenames in 7bits ASCII, legnth limited to 8 charaters). But maybe used by lazy manufacturers*…
V 2.1 and 2.2 have not been really used in practice.but intruce many other fields as “volume numbers” and track numbers (usefull for multi CD albums). Nothing to do with the way V1 is implemented (it can also store jackets pictures)
V 2.3 is mostly the same as previous version but also accepts ASCII 8 bits and (useless) UTF unicode characters in all names.
V 2.4 is mostly the same as V 2.4 with (very usefull) UTF support.
Here are UTF " e acute" to test -> ‘é’ and an “a” grave ‘à’ if it can help.
All standard spec’s on ID3 page
Thanks to all the intrepids
(*) Implementations code of V 2.4 exist and can freely be used !
