I am a Mac user.

I have 360gb music and some of it is listed in iTunes with underscores like in the following example.

Don't_go_breaking_my_heart


Is there a script that can remove the underscores and replace them with a space?

I have nearly got my library the way I want it and this would go a long way in helping me.

I'm not aware of one but if it exists, you'll likely find it here.

Thanks. I have used a few of his excellent scripts for other jobs in iTunes but there is not one for removing underscores.

I am sure someone that has a good grasp of writing scripts would be able to put one together. I have not got a clue where to start!!

If you aren't an idiot and pirate music like someone with any skills whatsoever and can operate music tagging software, your music you won't have underscore.
There, I fixed it.
Seriously, I am not paying $1.29 to listen to Harder Better Faster Stronger when I already own the CD and I want to pirate an FLAC copy. *shrug*

reguardless if this is legal or not, it has to do with how it is "ripped". You just go into file itself, and take out the underscore.

I do buy my music. This is music singles and rare lp's that a friend ripped from vinyl for me.



Thanks I will give this a go and report back.
All sorted now. Thanks for the suggestion. Used SEARCH AND REPLACE TAG and it whizzed through in minutes. All song are now in the proper format.

Also I must say that most of the people on the forums are great and friendly, willing to give advice without judgement although there are 1 or 2 that are right up themselves.
