Question for you all, i wrote to the help desk on Virtual Dj they did answer back me but didn't answer my question. What i asked was in the Tag Editor when you look at the top under Title says Baby Im Yours but when you look at the File Info at the bottom Filename says Baby I'm Yours and it doesn't have the dash. They wrote back saying go to settings and it will explain all about it.
You see the two don't match, Now two things first everything work Great and when i put a song in i don't use commas or dashes ( quicker two type without them ) My point is does thing go faster, better what ever with the two matching or doesn't matter, Virtual DJ couldn't tell me100_4580.jpg100_4581.jpg

The dash in the filename is just a separator; it doesn't effect the tag settings or speed of searches. You can search any way you want... just typing "barba" in the search box would probably get you the result you're looking for without having to type anything more.

Using VDJ to do your file naming protocol-to-tag conversion is a pain. Develop a file naming protocol, stick to it in every case, then use a tag editor to batch convert the new files.

first Thank you for your input and i know when you type in say bar it will bring up everything with bar in it. But with the two not matching it seems like something would be off, the dash i can understand but when the Title and Filename don't match to me didn't seem right

I'm thinking I don't fully understand your issue and would be glad to help if I better understood the problem.

First, are your files in your database tagged and named willy-nilly depending upon your acquisition source? Are they all even tagged?

Do you know how to alter your VDJ song list browser to accommodate all the variations of tags?

Sorry for all the questions however maybe your perceived issue is not really a problem at all.

ok like i said everything works fine i'm just asking this question as the two names dont match.
When in Virtual DJ on the left are your files of each artist you put in. left click on a artist and it brings up all the song you have on that artist. Now right click on a song it will take you to Tag Editor which gives you info about the song. Now if you look at picture 1 at the top where it says Title it says Lets Go and if you look at the bottom were it says File Info after filename it says Let's Go. These two are not spelled the same one has a comma one does not. The top part i do, putting in the name and date and info the bottom part i do not it must be done be the program ( Virtual DJ . ) The guy from Virtual DJ did tell me this ( picture 2 ) that if i left click on this button i can change the file name. I have done this and it will change to what i have done at the top. Like i said before or after i have done this the song come up and plays fine. #1.jpg#2.jpg#3.jpg#4.jpg

As Cap already pointed out, you can fix this with any tag editor - so that the tag and the filename are the same (if that's what you want).
