    I know *how* to do this, by going to "get info", and I have done it before. But, for some reason I *can't* actually do it anymore. When I select a group of songs to change info on, it acts like its going to work but then does nothing. When I select a single item, the get info tab is completely grayed out, nothing can be clicked on or changed. I have tried checking the song outside of iTunes to make sure it isn't read only or anything and I haven't found any issues with that. None of these should have any copy protection, they've all been ripped from cd or downloaded.

    The only way I have been able to change anything so far is to convert the mp3 to AAC. I really don't want to have to convert the whole library. What is wrong with this?? How do I fix it?

    It could be that your mp3 files don't have ID3 tags currently (or more likely have an old version of them), you may have to use a third party utility to change the ID3 tags to v2.3 (or whatever is the current version)

    Thanks for the input, but id3 tags are definitely NOT the problem. I checked, I cannot edit songs that have current (2.3) tags. If this were the problem, I would at least be able to edit *some* songs, but I'm unable to edit ANY songs.

    Any other ideas?
