If you got the problem music files as mp3s from another source, they may have corrupted ID3 Tag information. I've run across the same issue now and again where you change the information and it looks correct, but as soon as you play the file you can see the information switch back to what was originally in the file.
Select the problem tracks, right-click and choose "Convert ID3 Tags...". For the ID3 Tag version, select "None" and click OK. This should remove any ID3 Tag info from the files. Do the same thing again and choose the latest 2.4 version for the ID3 Tags and click OK. This basically removes the old data and now places a newly formated ID3 Tag in the files. Update the information and you should be able to play the tracks without them reverting to incorrect information now.
Hello, my name is Mike and I've been using iTunes for quite some time. And for quite some time, this problem has been bugging me like crazy. Every once in a while (I think it's when I play the song or something) iTunes will change the Ablum Artists of some songs to artists I know aren't right. For instance, it keeps placing Photograph by Weezer in my Nickelback folder, and even thought the song's Artist is still under Weezer, the album artists keeps automatically changing to Nickelback, and apparently thats what iTunes organizes folders by.
It also has keeps changing some song by From Autumn To Ashes to some band named Bagman.
Yes, I do have "Keep iTunes Media Folder Organized" checked because I want it to keep it organized, I just don't want it to change my file information.
Any help is greaty appreciated, thank you.
