Hi, I was wondering if anyone might know of a way to make windows be able to read non unicode cyrillic letters. I have a bunch of mp3's that I want to put into Itunes but all their info is garbled [Ėžįīāķīå ķąńņšīåķčå]. I know that its a Unicode problem because I found a few online converters that correctly change them. They are presently in CP1251 but windows thinks that they are from a different set and so ascribes different letters corresponding to that other set instead of the correct Cyrillic ones (or atleast that is what I've understood from the research I've done).
However, I still cannot find a solution to this problem. There are a few solutions for Macs such as Cyrfix which work directly with Itunes, but absolutely nothing for windows. It would seem that there would have to be a simple solution out there for such a small problem, but I'll be darned if I can find it.
The strange thing is that some of the files show up fine with the correct Cyrillic letters in windows explorer but when I transfer them into Itunes they get garbled. So I'm not sure if the problem is solely with windows and Unicode, or if I need two separate solutions for windows and Itunes for them to be able to correctly read the ID3 tags.
Thanks in advance for your Help!
P.S. and I'm running Windows 7 HP 64bit and the latest version of Itunes if that makes a difference. And FYI Cyrillic shows up fine in my web browsers and emails and I have the Russian keyboard installed, including several fonts specifically for CP1251.
