I just changed computers. On my old Mac I had an early version of Tuneup which I used to identify and tag all my songs in iTunes. When I copied my music files to the new computer, the track information did not come across and I was left with hundreds of songs with missing data.
Q1) Why didn’t all the old the data that I added over the years come across with the files?
I looked for something better than TuneUp and found Picard and I’m slowly working out how to use it.
Q2) I am dragging tracks directly from the iTunes window into Picard, It is identifying the tracks and finding the missing info etc., but when I save, the details in iTunes don’t get updated. For example, iTunes may originally show both Title and Artist in the Name column. After Picard does it’s magic and I save the data It’s not until I do a “get song info” that I see all the columns populate. This is time consuming for hundreds of tracks. Is there a better way to do this?
