View Full Version : Itunes metadata transfer: between libraries?

Nov 26, 2010, 08:50 AM
Is there a method to have metadata in itunes transfer over between a larger library of itunes and a smaller one? I have a smaller library on my local harddrive (intended for daily podcasts, and core music library, but have been doing continual revisions to metadata like album titles, art, year releases, lyrics, etc.).

The problem I ran into is I noticed that when I copied some revised albums over to my larger library to replace them, the revised metadata didn't change.

Any tips on how to retain the music collection that is larger, while being able to tweak and transfer metadata contents done in the smaller library? I'm just trying to avoid the redundancy of having to do both manually...

Any help much appreciated.... ; )
