cool thanks :) It didn't used to work though... I'm sure of it. Though I
used to run ubuntu on my laptop... it was so crap it hardly counted as a
laptop, so maybe it just couldn't work out how to write the metadata :P
The only reason I don't use Banshee atm is because of the filter box. It
doesn't work. sometimes I can type something in and it finds it. Other
times, I can be LOOKING AT the album, then I type it into the filter
(doesn't matter which field I have it set to), and it says no results
found. I haven't noticed any banshee updates recently, so I haven't
checked it out... do you have this problem with it?

Cheers :)
