No, no, no. Right click and "Get info" on the songs themselves in iTunes.

I wonder if it's not a language issue, rather than a font issue. Try the following:


Go into "Edit"
Select "Preferences"
Look at "Language" and see what is selected. If it's not English, then that's the problem and is solved by selecting it and then re-starting iTunes.


If that doesn't address your issue, it may be that the actual font file(s) on your computer have been altered in some way. If that's the case, then it's well out of my field of expertise. Good luck with this, and let us know what happens. It might be helpful for someone else in the future with the same problem to know what it was and what worked!

This problem is caused by the files' metadata being stored using incorrect encoding (non-Unicode). The language setting in iTunes or fonts have nothing to do with this.

Most likely the problem is because the files have been encoded using an old windows program. I saw similar issue after adding a couple of mp3's that were ripped with windows media player.

To fix the problem with the specific files without re-entering all information manually, you have to find a 3rd party software that allows to convert ID3 tag encodings, for example http://unicoderewriter.sourceforge.net/. You should also research what encoding was used originally so that you set up conversion correctly. For example, if the files were ripped on a Greek PC, the encoding would be windows-1253.

Run the program, set the source encoding to 'windows-1253' (if that doesn't work, try 'Cp1253') and convert the offending files. Then refresh the metadata in iTunes to reflect the changes: select the tracks, right click > Get Info and click OK.

See the usage page (http://unicoderewriter.sourceforge.net/index.php?show=Usage#d0e134) for more details.
