    There is no option for converting ID3-Tags in iTunes since version 10, is there?
    But now I noticed that there still is a .nib file in the iTunes 11 localisation folder which is entitled "ConvertID3.nib" and shows exactly that after conversion with NibUnlocker:
    my question is: is there an option to "hacktivate" this option again or do you think that this is the only thing left from the function? I tried replacing the Info Dialog with the ConvertID3.nib but iTunes would not open anything when choosing get info.

    Thanks in advance,

    Convert ID3 Tags... is still in iTunes 11, but it only shows up when you right-click on audio tracks while in Song or List View.


    In Summary:

    • You MUST be in List or Song View.
    • You can NOT be in Grid, Artist List, or Album View.
    • Also, please remember that ID3 Tags are only for MP3/MPEG audio files, and NOT MP4/AAC/Apple Lossless audio files.

    Hope this helps. ;)

    thank you for clearing this up!
    Actually I wanted to do something about my AAC files randomly changing Genres. Is there no way of re-writing the tags, etc.?
