Exact Audio Copy not populating the Album Artist tag


Novice Member
I use Exact Audio Copy (EAC) for CD extraction to MP3 files and MP3Tag for cleaning up tags and filenames. I find that EAC saves the file names correctly per my specification, which is %albumartist%\%albumtitle%\%cdnumber%-%tracknr2% %title%, and the main screen in EAC shows the "CD Artist" correctly; however, EAC does not populate the Album Artist (TPE2) tag at all. It leaves that field blank. That creates problems when I try to use that field in MP3Tag and other programs. I could use MP3Tag to correct the problem, but I'd rather have EAC populate the Album Artist tag correctly in the first place, if possible. Does anyone have any idea how to solve or diagnose this problem? Thanks.
