    Hi all:)

    My iTunes library is a bit messy and I'd like to correct all wrong metadata as well as fill missing album art and metadata. I'd like some software recomendations to do it more quickly.

    I've tried CoverScout for the album art, but it is quite buggy and crashes a lot, at least on my Intel iMac. I can't use the iTunes "Get Album Artwork" feature because there is no iTunes Store in my country, and it refuses to do it for me if I haven't got an account.

    I'm most interested in something that will put missing Album names (since the song names and artists are all correct) as well as the missing artwork.

    All suggestions appreciated!

    Cheers :apple:

    Thanks for the input!

    The problem with Album Cover Finder is that I have to play the song with missing artwork on iTunes for it to actually look for artwork. CoverScout can show me a list of all my albums without artwork and I can add artwork to all songs of an album, not just the currently playing one. Besides, ACFinder only offer Amazon integration, and I've got loads of CDs that aren't on Amazon (something with proper Google Images integration would be fantastic).

    Any other ideas/suggestions? What about something to add missing information to songs on iTunes?

    Cheers:cool:

    Ever thought of doing it by hand, in iTunes? Takes a while but works well you know. Just remember to do the cleaning right after you add a new album to keep it from getting messy.

    Yikes!? Are you serious? You must have a small library of music because I wouldn't bother with this method even if I had 10 gigs of music.

    Try Clutter, it isn't absolutely hands free but it is pretty accurate. Carripio used to be a good one although it likes to prompt you a lot on album art, and its stopped working for me. Also GimmeSomeTunes I hear is good, never tried it though.

    You can also try iEatBrainz or Jaikoz. Both utilize the MusicBrainz database. You can find download links for both at:

    I got 35 gb. I've been doing it from the beginning though so now its just a habit with just one album to go at the time ;)

    I understand the problem though. I remember it was a pain first time...
