MP3 tags

Postby jrosseau » Wed Aug 08, 2007 1:49 pm

Wondering....has anyone ever done mass updates using tags from their MP3 files. For example, if you have updated your tags in Itunes or Winamp, how can you get those to update in mass, in the audio manager or database?

Thanks

Nevermind, I figured out how to do it. For those interested.

You can use MS Access as the tool and link your main.dbf database to access. In Itunes you can export your song list as a text file and then import that into access.

In MS Access you then set up a query that matches your itunes export and your main.dbf by song name. Once the query is working, you can make it an "update query" and update the category field in main.dbf from your itunes genre field (or wherever you want the change to come from).

That's it....done, when you go back into audio manager, you will see that it recognizes your changes.
