Android Can Rename Video Files, Can NOT Rename Music Files
#1
Question 
I'm running Kodi 17.6 on my FireTV Gen 2. I've enabled the setting under Media to allow media files to be renamed, and I can rename video files just fine. But whenever I try to rename a music file, Kodi always rejects the changes. I have disabled Tag Reading, since I don't want that, and in fact I've disabled all options under System -> Media -> Music, and I've set the Default Information Providers to Local Information Only. I want complete and total manual control of file and folder names.

So why can't I rename music filenames?

Thanks for your help!

I've just tested this with v19 by renaming a file and it worked first time.  It did not however make any difference to what Kodi displayed in it's GUI but then I haven't turned off tag reading etc etc.  I'm really not sure why you would want to do that since the entire music library is based around reading those tags.  Are you sure that Kodi has write permissions for wherever those files are stored ?
