Changing genres

by dwilt72 / August 15, 2014 5:02 AM PDT

My itunes software is constantly changing the genres of songs. I tend to listen to music by genre, so it's driving me crazy and it seems to have gotten more aggressive lately. I'm really tired of changing it back. I have googled the issue and most of the stuff i find is at least a couple of years ago. I have tried changing the id3 tags, but that hasn't done anything. Is anyone else experiencing this and has anyone come up with a fix?

But one can turn off iTunes automatic update of songs. That is pretty old. That is, that setting(s) are well done so are they on or off?

You claimed you researched those old discussions. For me the off settings are often noted like

That is, the copy to my library and keep organized settings will wreck havoc on those that don't want a computer overlord. There's also some talk when there is a m3u playlist.

I did research the old discussions. All I ever read was change the ID3 tag or suck it up and live with. I have no idea what you're talking about with your reply. Do you have instructions for what you're talking about?

In your case, no.

Sorry but something odd or new is going on here. Take it up in an Apple iTunes forum as it appears that you are seeing something truly odd or new. That is, the usual off or disable settings are not working for you or oddly missing.

Good luck,

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
