Hi,

I use iTunes, but on a Windows operating system, and I'm having a small problem - it may be a virus. Sometimes when I'm playing music through the computer, often when I have a usb device plugged in, the song I've been playing - and several others around it - get a load of numbers and letters appearing in the 'comments' box. There are a lot of zeros, and it usually looks something like this: 00000000 00000210 00000A5C 0000000000D2CD14 00000000 0072ABEC 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000. Although there are the odd ones that read like this too: 1371;87003772

This in itself isn't a problem, except that if I don't get rid of these numerical messages, it reorders albums, moves songs etc. It's more of a mild annoyance than a big problem, but I wondered if anyone had experienced anything similar?

It might be a problem with the ID tag and it's not uncommon. Different versions of ID tags in mp3s allow more or less information to be displayed such as, genre, album info, bpm, etc. Try playing the mp3 file on a different player or upgrading itunes. I don't know much about Macs to know what the default is. You could also try a program like MP3Tag to view the tag info.
