    Ok, so I have been a life long pc user who recently bought one of the new unibody mbps. On my old pc I had a large collection of .mp3 files that i moved over to my mac. My problem is that on the pc I could easily edit all of the information by right clicking and going to properties. On my mbp I right click on the file go to get info but it wont let me edit any of the stuff in the "more info" section, like the year recorded, comments, album, or title. Is there anyway to do this? I am really ocd about how my music is organized and like it all to be the same. (seeing unorganized ipods drives me crazy) I know you can do this in itunes but i want to do it on the actual files so it is changed permanently. Any help is appreciated.

    Open them in iTunes and right-click and "Get Info". Any change you make will be stored in the MP3 tags.

    Something like MetaX will change the info for you. MetaX does info for movie files, I'm not sure if it will do .mp3 files but its worth a try.

    If you have a lot to do, I use Tag & Rename through Crossover (crossover lets you run some windows programs within OSX). Tag & Rename is the best software I have found for this on any platform, unfortunately it is windows only.

    I also use Tag & Rename, but I'm sick of going back and forth between the OSes. Is there still nothing else that comes close?

    You could try Tag (still in development), or if you want a commercial solution go with MediaRage.
