There are times when you begin to wonder whether updating is sensible. I have just loaded iTunes 12.2 and my first task was to load a CD of songs which we, as a charity, use for funerals. When the songs were imported the titles were in Japanese rather than English! I have tried to find a way of fixing the problem via preferences but to no avail.
There is currently no help in the Apple forums. Do you have any ideas for how to ensure this does not happen in future? My current workaround is import the tracks into a folder and manually change the titles but this should not be necessary. David Simpson Alex Blake says: This sounds like the result of a couple of iTunes’ preferences for dealing with CDs. In iTunes > Preferences > General, is the option ‘When a CD is inserted’ set to import the disc’s contents? If so, iTunes will do this without any intervention from you. I suspect that the option right below that, to automatically retrieve CD track names from the internet, is also enabled, and that your disc is being matched to an incorrect item in the online database of discs. You’ll want that setting on for convenience most of the time. So, change the first preference’s setting to Show CD, click OK and then put the disc in your Mac. You can then review downloaded details before import. Sometimes iTunes will offer a choice of discs; you might find one of them matches your disc’s actual contents.
