Ok, two questions I just can NOT figure out. I have a large library of about 5000 songs (33gb worth) and have everything all layed out just the way I like it. All album art, Artist, Album, Year, Genre, etc. I am finding now though that this is only saving in the .xml file, not the ID3 tags. When I put these files on an external disc so I can listen at work, nothing is organized and artists, albums, etc are all blank. An easy way to tell is open the mp3 in quicktime and hit Command-J. If the tags are present in the file, they will show up in the Annotations section. Has anyone else experienced this? If I click on "Get Info" inside iTunes I have found that anything that is not writing tags has "encoder: unknown" even though these were all created with a previous version of iTunes. The only thing I have found so far is the "Convert To Mp3" option, but I hate to recompress every file I have! It's time consuming and I don't want to loose quality. It works though... by doing this, it will say "encoder: iTunes 7.0.2" and the tags are written to the files (again verified through Quicktime). There has got to be a better way to do this... Also frustrating is that iTunes can burn an MP3 cd but cannot play them. My car stereo has this capability, and it works just fine. I just wish I could listen to this same CD without adding to my library (since I use multiple computers), like I can do with a normal CD. It will show up on the left, and can play without copying over. Anyone have a fix for either of these? Even an alternative to iTunes that will play Mp3 discs from the disc - I don't need to copy them over.
