    Okay so i have been using the album art player thing in the new itunes and now the album art unknown is really starting to get to me. I have a lot of old music i have been collecting over the years and a lot of the data was either not there or for watever reason is not there...

    im looking for a program to do either an audio scan or something to find all my album art work and information that itunes displays.

    I have used the itunes find album artwork but some songs done have the album listed.... what do i do from here... i am not going through 4k songs to get them all manually... :mad:

    If it's older or more obscure music, you may find that any automated album art app will fail to find it. I prefer to manually add all my album art, as the quality of artwork that apps download isn't nearly as good as what I can manually add. I start with Album Art Exchange and if I don't find it there, I search Google images to find the highest-quality artwork available. It took some time, but the end result is well worth it!

    I use Tagalicious myself. I used to use Tuneup but really I don't like that program. Tagalicious is much better at finding album art.

    Good luck... I found the time I saved was worth the cost

    Did notice if you are on Mac or Windows, but for Mac I had one called iEatBrainz that did an incredible job on my whole library. I did have to go through and check it on some songs, but it matches the audio sample to their database to pull the right tags, once tagged, a ton more artwork was found.

    May have turned into MusicBrainz, but not sure.

    Maybe it's still out there, it was free at the time I used it.
