My Cowon D2 mp3 player started crashing, track names would disappear and sometimes it would "Blue Screen". It was getting progressively worse. I worried it was slowing failing, that I'd have to by a new player.

But after searching forums, I came across a post saying that mp3 corruption can ruin an MP3 player's database and to fix this I'd need to use MP3val.

So I downloaded this handy utility, scanned and fixed my corrupted mp3 files (and there were many). Since, I've had no problems at all with my Cowon. I've even expanded it's memory with a 16Gb SD card without fuss. MP3val is an indispensable utility, 5/5.

It also runs fine on Linux using Wine!

Had a large corrupt MP3 file that is able to be played in WinAmp, but can't be cut due to a CRC error or something similar. This program read the 2gig file as empty and would not even scan it. Cute, but worthless.

I'm no kind of programmer, but I appreciate an elegant little program that solves a specific problem, in this case bad ID3 tag data preventing songs imported into iTunes from showing up in the iTunes library.

I had a maddening situation where I attempted to import 16,000 songs into a new iTunes libary, but only 11,000 of them showed up. These were all songs that played happily in QuickTime, Windows Media Player, etc., etc.

I looked high and low for a solution on the Apple news groups and across the internet generally. The result: thousands of people had the problem but no one had a decent solution. Most tag editors' batch capabilities were completely unsuitable to the problem, so that fixing the problem would effectively be a matter of editing each offending file individually. 6,000 files? Are they crazy?

So I finally run across MP3val, a freeware utility that does a batch scan and batch repair of ID3 tags so that iTunes can see them all. Graced by speedy execution, security in the form of a backup of each file repaired (just in case...) and an "Any Idiot" interface, MP3val is a gem.

Why doesn't iTunes do this itself? One can only wonder. But MP3val fills a huge hole that would otherwise have rendered a significant portion of my music collection unusable in iTunes.

Kudos to the programmer!
