unicode in ID3 tag
When adding songs, Thai language characters in the tag appears blank, eventhough other languages like Chinese or Japanese work fine.

One other thing, at the add songs dialog box, there's a media player component for playing the song. But it doesn't seem to appear correctly if media player 7 or 9 is installed.

Send me one of the files containing those thai chars, I'll check it out.

also try this:
add one songs
manually fill song infos with thai chars.
copy that song back to Desktop
add the song you copied to Desktop to iPod

See if you still don't get the thai chars corretly.

Should be fixed in next release.

Re: unicode in ID3 tag
Tomas, I figured out the problem, the Thai songs were ripped long ago with some old encoder and had ID3 v2.2 tags. Once I converted the tags to v2.3 everything works as expected.
