Did I post a stupud question, or is this just one of those little problems with no software solution? I know we get spoiled with all the things that are out there to automate tasks and make our lives "better".
First of all, all the songs I am trying to tag are either from my CD collection, or purchased from iTunes. I'm not trying to fix stolen tracks.
I tried searching Google, gut most things seem to assume there is a tag that just needs editing. I tried using WMP 11, but every time I try right clicking to Find Album Info, it comes back with Unknown Artist/Album. Isn't there some kind of digital signature in tracks that are identifieable, like EXIF data in a photo, that a program could find? 11 CDs worth of tracks is way more manual track editing than I really have time for, and the text Play List I saved from iTunes appeares as a jumbled mess, with track names, albums, bit rate, dates, etc, all mixed up.
I guess if there is no other way but to listen to a clip of every song, I can. Uh!
I made a large playlist in iTunes for my nephew and burned a DVD for him. Problem is he doesn't have, and won't download iTunes (go figure!) and is having trouble playing quite a few of the tracks because they're not mp3s. I deleted the playlist I made for him, so I don't have any way of just re-selecting all the songs out of my music library.
I did burn 11 cds with all the songs, and can convert them to mp3s, but can't figure out how to tag them all. I'm not real motivated to sit down and listen to a clip of every song and tag them manually. I used WMP 10 to rip/convert one CDs worth and that went fine, except for the missing tags.
What can I use that will batch rip, convert, and tag 11 CDs worth of untagged iTunes songs so I can re-burn him another DVD, but with all songs in mp3 format? BTW, they came from my iTunes, which came from my CD collection.
