    Hi There,

    I'm a bit of an iTunes freak and with a library of 50GB, i like it to be organised.

    A lot of my tracks were imported when no internet connection was present and some of the titles have been added manually, which often means itunes can't find the artwork.

    I'm planning on going through the whole library, deleting some stuff but also making sure the format of all the songs ID3 tags are the same.

    Easiest way i can see of doing this is by running with the iTunes Store database so that all my tracks can be recognised by itunes itself.

    I also want to make sure that all of the genres are in place as well.

    Any help with regards to where i can access the database and change the ID3 tags would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Dan

    iTunes uses Gracenote for their CD information. If you can hook into that then you'd have exactly the same info as iTunes.
