iTunes ID Tags Problem

by Xonnie316 / February 28, 2009 11:29 PM PST

Hey Cnet members,

I got this problem, well I just imported around 20gbs of mp3's to my iTunes library. And all the names of the songs show up like this example:

"AFI - Prelude 12/21"
"AFI - Miss Murder"

while I wish they show up as:

"Prelude 12/21"
"Miss Murder"

To have them as just the name of the song, I have to double click through each song in my whole library.

I made 2 photos on the net, so that you would have a good idea of what I mean.

Because when I import them also to my iPod it shows up with the filename, instead of just the track name.

Hope someone would be able to help me out,

Maybe you require a software for your ipod in order to play those music files..

Thanks for your reply,

But I actually found a software which updates your library, and it solves the problem.
