    Prior to upgrading to ML, I was able to view an MP3's bit rate in the More Info area & now it's disappeared. Any help on how to restore that?

    This has been discussed several times. It appears that functionality is missing in ML. You could try an alternate app, such as TotalFinder. There are also some ideas in this thread:

    Bitrate (for mp3s) via Finder's 'Get Info' is missing

    I don't have ML here to test this, but does opening it in Quicktime and hitting command-i tell you?

    For that matter, opening in iTunes would show it. I think the issue is that Finder doesn't show it, and some want to know the bitrate without having to actually open each file.

    Agree that they should put it back in Finder, but short of that I'd still suggest opening it in Quicktime rather than having iTunes auto-import and copy it (which is how most people have iTunes set).

    That's a pain, I'll be using MP3-info until this is addressed by Apple.
