I am copying working with CD metadata and coming across a problem with durations. What is supplied to me is this format 0:00 and I need it to be 00:00. But every time I try to either manually change it or use custom mm:ss it comes out as a totally different number. Know this has something to do with the serial number.... Can someone help me figure this dilemma out? I have thousands of CDs to do for a publisher. Thanks!
