Tags not being...
Topic: Tags not being saved after reopening virtual DJ
I have noticed that after editing some tags e.g Remix, > clicked Write Tag > clicked OK, the tag appears to have been saved. However on closing Virtual DJ and reopening, it shows the original tag before editing.
What is causing this behavior? FYI - The ReadOnly under settings is set to No.

Are the files on an external drive ? Are they on the system drive ? (C: )
Is it only the database that doesn't save or the tags of the files as well ?

The files are one my local Macintiosh HD drive.
I have just realized that the tags on the files are being saved OK, but it seems the database isn't.
Do you know what the issue might be?

Can you post 2 screenshots of Tag Editor with one of those tracks, before and after launching ?
Has to be some permission issue. I would suggest, to repair permissions http://osxdaily.com/2015/11/04/verify-repair-permissions-mac-os-x/ (its different on El Capitan), then restart your computer and try again.

Please have a look before I start repairing permissions. I only have one user on this mac and its on el capitan.
Thanks for your reponses.

On reopening, the remix tag still reads Acapella.

Does Link appears in the Genre field, or do you still get Linked when VirtualDJ restarts ?

Can you try to change the title or artist field as well (just remove a letter and type it again) and see if it remembers the remix field then?
This seems to have solved the problem.
