ITunes :: Can't Change Song Info

Apr 5, 2012

The Get Info functionality is completely gone from the command-click menu! Now I can't manually change my song info? Did they change it or completely remove it?

Info:Mac, Mac OS X (10.7.2)

Applications :: How To Change Song Info In ITunes?

Feb 8, 2010

I know *how* to do this, by going to "get info", and I have done it before. But, for some reason I *can't* actually do it anymore. When I select a group of songs to change info on, it acts like its going to work but then does nothing. When I select a single item, the get info tab is completely grayed out, nothing can be clicked on or changed. I have tried checking the song outside of iTunes to make sure it isn't read only or anything and I haven't found any issues with that. None of these should have any copy protection, they've all been ripped from cd or downloaded.

The only way I have been able to change anything so far is to convert the mp3 to AAC. I really don't want to have to convert the whole library. What is wrong with this?? How do I fix it?

OS X :: Changing Song Info Without ITunes?

Dec 7, 2009

I'm sure this is a ridiculously easy thing to do, and that I'm just being exceptionally stupid, but I've not been able to figure it out, and Google is as unhelpful as ever.

As a new PC to Mac convert, occasionally I stumble on something in OS X that baffles the heck out of me, and inevitably discover that it's typical ex-Windows stupidity on my part, and I'm hoping this is just another example of that. I'm looking for a means of changing song information (track number, album, year, genre, &c), without having to use iTunes. I hate iTunes at the best of times, and really don't relish the thought of being forced to use it every time I want to switch two letters of a mislabelled album title or re-number a track (I should also point out, my iTunes library is taken from an external harddrive for the sole purpose of putting that music on my iPod (the only reason why I use iTunes), whereas the songs I want to relabel are on my MBP's harddrive for the purpose of listening to from the computer itself, and are currently not in my iTunes library in any form, nor do I wish to put them there).

In Windows, you could just pull up the file information and change track number, album, year, &c &c &c from within Explorer... but when I try to do the same in OS X by hitting "more info" in Finder, there's no option to change any of the details I'm after. Is there a simple way of doing this that I'm just blindly missing by sheer stupidity, or does song information have to be edited through iTunes or not at all?

OS X :: ITunes Song Info Drop Down?

Jan 4, 2010

I lent my old MacBook to my brother for awhile. I have it back now and iTunes is doing something peculiar, and I can't figure out how to make it stop. Every time a new song starts to play a little black box drops down out of the right hand side of the taskbar with the song name and info. It's just a minor annoyance, but I'd really like to figure out how to make it stop. I can't seem to find any program or anything that is making it happen and my brother says he doesn't know what he did. Hopefully this picture will make things more clear.

Applications :: ITunes Not Showing What Song It Has Shuffled To / Unable To View Track Info Box

Sep 2, 2010

Select Shuffle Mode. Pause your music, or make sure nothing is playing, then go to Minimize view.

Now hit FFW or REV. What appears in the track info box? Nothing, right? iTunes doesn't show you what song it has shuffled to. It only works if you are playing, not in pause.

Surely this is wrong? Sometimes you want to select song before playing it, right? This works fine on my Ipod. Everyone else have this problem?

Applications :: Multiple User Accounts On ITunes / Unable To Make Changes To Song Info

Feb 22, 2008

we have a macbook pro running Leopard. My wife and I have separate user accounts on the single laptop and keep the music in one central Public folder (both or our iTunes are pointed to this public folder). For some reason, my wife is unable to make any changes to song info (album art, change genre, etc.). However, she can play the music, update her Nano, import music, etc. The only thing she can't do is make changes to the song info. This isn't an issue with my account because I am the primary user account on the computer. We are both set up as Admin and I have assigned Read/Write privileges to all files. Does anyone have any idea what the issue could be? Tech support/program specialist has no idea.

ITunes :: Can't Change Billing Info

Feb 9, 2012

I just moved back from USA to Norway and I need to change my country and billing information. iTunes is denying me this because I still have store credit on my american account. It's just $0.28 left and there is really nothing I can buy. My american visa is terminated so I can't buy anything with greater value that the credit I have left.

ITunes :: Change Tag Info On Songs?

Feb 12, 2012

A few of the thousands of songs I have loaded into iTunes don't have track numbers embedded in their tags. 

I've just migrated from PC to Mac and have a nice new MBP and am discovering a few differences between the two platforms. grrr 

I want control of tags - is this possible. When I get "info" for a particular song their is no reference to track numbering available? 

There are other things I'd like to be able to tweak as well. Like just pulling up a particular genre - I used Media Centre on my PCs and had amazing control of everything. It behaved like a well constructed database.

MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)

ITunes For Mac :: How To Change Track Info

Sep 4, 2014

I recently purchased a macbook air. All my music files and mp3s are stored on my partners cloud drive (WD Mycloud) I have tried changing my permissions, but they are all read/write. my little padlocks are all unlocked and as far as I can tell none of my music files are protected.  

So WHY can I not change any of my track infos that state the whole album/artist/track as the track name and everything else as unknown and i cannot change this!

ITunes For Mac :: Change Info For Multiple Videos At Once?

Dec 4, 2014

I have my media on a NAS (Qnap 451) and have added my existing videos to my library (without copying them locally to my library), and of course they show up as home videos.  I know how you are supposed to change theinfo for multiple files, I select them all and choose get info and change the options tab to Movie.  When I do that nothing happens at all, I can do the files one at a time and they change fine, but if I even select just two files it doesn't work.

I then tried to change the genre of the audio file. When I change it and then replay the song, the genre changes to it's original setting? How do I change this? I'm using a mac.

OS X :: Unable To Change Artist Field In Itunes / Song Changes Its Track Listing

Oct 31, 2010

I recently purchased The 99 Darkest Pieces of Classical Music from Amazon. Yeah, it's sucky MP3, but it was free and I'm not a big classical music buff. I have the Album Artist field empty, and every track marked as "Part of a Compilation". So far so good. When I go to change the Artist field of any track, to fix a misspelling or capitalization error, for example, that track is instantly dragged out of the track listing for 99 Darkest and into its own album, with the album name being Unknown Album. This despite the track still being marked as Part of a Compilation. If I restore the original spelling, the track is dragged back into 99 Darkest's list. It's not like iTunes to maintain state like that. What's happening and how do I fix it?

Applications :: Any Way To Apply Info In ITunes To Change Original File Names

Mar 16, 2009

All of my movies on my hard drive have crazy file names. I just rename the info from within itunes. I am wondering if there is a way to apply the info in itunes to change the original file names. So that I don't have to change them all manually on my hard drive if I want them in some sort of order. Something like 'apply itunes info to original filename'. I am pretty sure it isn't possible but thought it might be worth a try.

Applications :: Batch Rename Song Names To (Artist - Song Name) Within ITunes?

Apr 28, 2009

I have song compilation albums in itunes. I prefer to seach by Artist, not album. Compilation albums often assign a different artist for each song. I don't like this, as I end up with thousands of artists, each with only one song! Here's an example:

I copy "Classical Chillout" compilation album to itunes. 30 songs show up, each with their own (new) artist name, song name, and all within the album "Classical Chillout.

Instead of having:

SONG Adagio for Strings

ARTIST Samuel Barber

ALBUM Classical Chillout


I want to batch rename all songs so that the Album name becomes the Artist and each "Artist" name is inserted into the "Song" name

SONG Samuel Barber- Adagio for Strings

ARTIST Classical Chillout

ALBUM Classical Chillout

Applications :: How To Line Up Next Song To Play After Current Song In ITunes?

Dec 2, 2010

I know you can use iTunes dj to "play song next" or whatever but I don't like iTunes DJ for the fact that you don't have 100% control over what songs are playing if you want to pinpoint certain songs, etc..

Is there any way that I can line up a song to play after the current song without interrupting the current song and immediately playing the song I want next?

OS X :: Stutter In ITunes When Clicking Song To Song?

Dec 11, 2008

I have a decent size music library(40+gig) on my late MB and i find that iTunes is slow to load when I open it and sometimes when im clicking around songs there is a half second pause before the song is highlighted and then starts to play. Since the program is pulling the info off the HD im thinking that if i got a higher capacity 7200 rpm drive that this would help (currently my stock 150gig only has 50gigs left) with this stutter or would upgrading to 4gig ram?
