I spent days and days ripping CD’s as 44.1 16 bit wav files using the ripping software Max.
Max uses the MusicBrainz database to generate the various fields and the files were automatically imported in to iTunes with track/artist/album/track number information, although the metadata isn’t saved in the wav files.
When I converted all the wav files to mp3s in iTunes (to put on a smaller capacity iPod) all the wav files were removed from iTunes (!!!) and now when I reimport them, the artist/album/track number info are missing and the track name is simply the name of the file.
I can use MusicBrainz Picard to find all the missing information, my question is how do I go about importing this information along with the audio files in to iTunes?
I know that I can’t embed the metadata in to the wav file, but I’m surprised that when I right click on the files and select open in player, the artist/album/track number are missing and the track name is reverted to the file name. Is there any script that I can use?
Any help would be very much appreciated!
