    Hi,

    I just downloaded my first movie from the iTunes store and noticed that at the end of the title in my library came a nice little rating logo, and the description field came with a nice little "i" to push to see the rest of the description. I was wondering if it were possible to add those to the rest of my movies. I currently have just been adding the description with metax but there is no "I" to push to see the rest of it.

    Thanks.

    I use metax also for this and it does work. In metax, select the movie file to tag, and fill out its description, write this to the file and import to itunes.

    Then in itunes, in the movies section, in either list or coverflow view, right click on the top of the columns and make sure that 'description' is ticked. It should show part of the description followed by (i).

    When you click on (i) it displays the description and actors, directors etc that may have been pulled by metax from amazon

    Can you do the rating too in that program?

    you can do ratings in terms of MA, PG etc (and it shows up in iTunes) but I don't think you can assign star ratings. Thats within iTunes tho

    Thanks, DENZIE. I got the rating logo to show up, however my description field still shows the first few words and then "..." with no "i" to click.
